Who knew they had Audis in Hawaii? This one owner 4000CS was initially put into service in Minneapolis where the Quattro system would have been the state of the art in Minnesota snow fighting technology. After 30,000 miles, the Audi (and we assume the original owner) moved to the Maui where the AWD could work its magic on some jungle trails.
The owner claims that a staggering $29,000 has been spent on “mechanical restoration” since 2008 which seems like it might be an order of magnitude off unless the drivetrain from a modern S4 was somehow swapped in. Work that was listed as performed includes a timing belt, water pump, radiator, tie rods, struts, control arms, brakes, tires, and more.
The seller claims that there is no rust, and that the car was "rustproofed a few years ago" which strikes us as a bit odd, but maybe the environment on Maui is a little harsher and saltier than the tropical climate we’re imagining.
The tan leather interior looks to be in decent shape with some expected cracking and bolster wear present. There are some bumps and bruises on the original white paint, but things look straight and clean.
For our money, this is one of the best looking sedans to come out of the 80's and we have one on our roster. Somehow, importing a car from Europe seems less daunting than having one shipped from Hawaii, but maybe we should make some calls and bring this one back from paradise to Pittsburgh.
