It will be interesting to see what that goes for. Any guesses?

For a car that pristine with that low miles, it should be on Bring a Trailer and not eBay.

My guess is that the seller would like 30K, which I believe is worth it.

Thanks

considering it was parked back in 1994, it seems odd the rear left light doesn't match the right

My concern would be dry seals, particularly the transmission.
BTW, I am not sure the tail lights don't match. It could be the reflection from the overhead lights making them look different.

My guess would be $21,000.00. Will be interesting to see what the final bid is.

nah, lights are definitely different.....sure sign of a ding. (Ok, a great big SUV could have dinged it in the showroom where it's been standing since 1994,....)

(oh, yes, I know I'm a picky böööger, but the ariel is also stuck up in the air...iow broke)

Like to see underneath photos of that one.

Well, I'm not convinced the taillights aren't just reflecting different light. The left is reflecting a window, the right is not.

Good spot on the antenna though - obviously a problem there.

Let's see what this car sells for if the reserve is met.

The right tail light could also be yellowed from proximity to the battery, venting acid. Looks like original Pirelli P4000 tires as well as a very clean undercarriage. From photos looks legit.

believe me, the lights are different, it is not reflection, not battery acid, it's simply two different style rear lights (happens all the time with the S4, as light units are expensive and the original "white stripe" lights are nla)...at least one has to ask why...

Oh, and if I paid 25k$ for this, I'd want this melted wiring to be explained....there is a lot happening just for sitting around 25 years in a climatized showroom, methinks....


It is obviously a decent spider, but all that glistens is not gold

Original tires were Pirelli P6

P4000 not P6 (in America I believe).
