If you recall my story of the guy whose Nissan Cube needs a new engine... Well he went a bought a 2004 A4 Avant 3.0 with a stick(!) yesterday. Black on black, 100k miles, in damn nice shape. Picked it up for peanuts, because of course he did.
I get to drive it next week, partially excited. Also the same guy who let me drive his manual Forester XT a while back. He likes buying things.
