This well sorted, solid, and reliable Avant has been my daily driver for the past year. It's comfortable to drive, has lots of power, has never let me down and will make someone a happy owner. My commute has been dramatically shortened and I need to make room for my current project.

Issues: Clear coat pealing on roof, rust on rear gate, paint fading on top of right fender, dash is cracked, sunroof opens only 1/3 way, but does flip up, headline is a bit dirty but not ripped and is intact, ABS not working (drivers front sensor needs replacing), cruise not working.
Options (loaded): full leather, 8 way power front heated seats, ABS, pl, pw, pm, automatic climate control, sunroof, 6 function trip computer, 10 disc CD changer. See Model Guide for more information
Maintenance history over the last 40k miles: Oil changed every 4000 miles with Mobil high mileage syn blend, new rear Bilsteins HD (only 2k miles on them), new front OEM type inserts at 205k with new strut bearing, new clutch master and slave cylinder, new radiator and reservoir, new intercooler to intake hose, new WOT, replaced instrument cluster at 205k. Timing belt was changed by previous owner. I have no records of this. The timing belt looked brand new when I purchased the car at 205k.
I commuted 160 highway miles a day in this car and it never let me down. I would feel comfortable taking it on a cross-country trip. This 5kCS TQW is well sorted, solid, reliable and will make someone a great car.
Thanks for looking!
