Off the top of my head I say,

DANGER DANGER

Unless it's that rare one off soft top FHC with a single carb.

Who's gonna call and leave a message?

Well it's an S4 with a badly fit door..being pessimistic there's probably other stuff that's not right but 18000 doesn't seem bad at all and probably priced for a quick sale after all it is around 15000 Euros. Being a US model won't probably need a chassis change.

It cant be to bad - anyone with a spare set of wheels with slicks on it must have used the car and appreciated it and probably looked after it

cheers
