Default Got a WS6. Bit late posting this

Been in the middle of a move and really have had no time to take pics or even wash the car. I bought a 98 WS6 A4 with 109K miles on it. Bought it from the 2nd owner who had owned it since feb of this year. The car is a Texas car and was used a DD. The car was completely stock with the exception of a magnaflow muffler and tips and a shitty CD deck. Funny thing is this is actually the first WS6 I test drove. I looked a few others that were IMO overpriced or had been abused. The woman I bought it from originally was asking 7500 and I got it for 6750 which is below the bluebook value for my area so I am happy. I have put a new power steering pump in and a SLP lid.

Tell you what, owning my 79 for 9 years it sure is a different experience driving this car. Many things I like better then my 79 many things I don't but it is foreign to me to get such good performance and such good gas mileage. My plans for the car this year are ls6 intake(already purchased), ported TB, frost tune, and hopefully some headers and ORY. This car will pretty much serve as my DD during the spring-fall months along with my Harley and will help me reduce the miles I put on my 79 haha like 3K is so much. Anyways here are some pics(not great) and I look forward to experiencing a totally different and exciting car platform(LS1)

Why'd the previous owner want to sell it after just picking it up in February?
