2009 AUDI A4 Cabriolet S-Line Final Edition. I have had the car 5 years -
LOTS OF HISTORY
2 Previous owners I bought this car in 2016 from Arnold Clarke. Lots of History/ receipts (Audi Main dealer and Audi Independent mainly)
RECENT SERVICE ~4,000 miles ago (Jan20) + NEW TIMING BELT and WATER PUMP (late 2019). Audi Retro Fitted CRUISE CONTROL.
BRAKES PADS, DISCS AND TYRES ALL VERY GOOD. LEATHER SEATS UNMARKED, SAT NAV, RADIO, CRUISE ALL WORK GREAT. Currently has near full tank of fuel, which may still be in there.
Owned for 5 years, it had been serviced more than the required schedule in these 5 years. I don't have space to keep it. (I have most service invoices - details below).

I have 90% of receipts for services, (at least 9 of them). Last serviced by VAG Manchester end of Jan 2020.
It has high miles but key things replaced and fully serviced. The brake pads and discs are all very good condition and premium Bosch etc. Also had a new DPF fitted last year, which if you buy a similar car and this fails will cost over £1000. (Main dealer about £1600 fitted), new brakes would be around £500.
Its had lots of service and new parts, including the timing belt and water pump, which is scheduled every ~80K or 5 years.
Miles are now around 197,000, at least 100K on the motorway with cruise on mainly @2,100rpm doing 70mph. The turbo has hardly been used as at 2,100rpm is not active. The turbo produces about 20/22 psi (which is full boost to my understanding).

There are no advisories for the MOT, which is due end of August. I don’t have the time to juggle the MOT with Covid situation and 2+ months left. I don't think that anything should be a problem as Audi main dealer have had it recently for a full health check.
The car does not use/ burn any oil/ anti freeze.--------INTERIOR is all great condition, seats are heated and unmarked, MMI / radio and sat nav all work.
Any questions please let me know. You can’t really drive given covid, although we can figure something out, if you would like to see it running etc, - or I can film it through the gears on the motorway etc..
REDUCED - PLEASE READ ALL BELOW:
It has an occasional random misfire when warm (happened maybe 8 times in the last month). It may need a new injection wiring loom as they break down after a few years.PLEASE ASSUME IT MISFIRES ALL OF THE TIME FOR BUYING AND PRICE. The car has lots of history and has been well serviced. If you get the misfire sorted, it's a great car. It has happened a few times in the last 700 miles, but two Audi garages have checked it (700 miles ago), and couldn't find a fault, as the misfire happens random times and wont happen when they have had it, and no faults on the computer. It happened today after 15 mins, then faded away. The other day it sounded worse for 15 mins, and other days it's fine. It never been not drivable but needs fixing asap. It sometimes now sounds like small misfire, and occasionally sounds worse, mostly little on maybe one cylinder. Very likely electrical as it comes and goes and didn't happen at all for 500 miles recently.
Exhaust slight blow at the Y section. This was welded last year and at the service said the weld was leaking/ blowing. So may need this welding for the MOT. Its had a new DPF last year so thats fine.
AIRCON stopped working a few weeks ago, maybe needs at least a re-gas (hasn't been done for years), unless its got a small leak, took it to kiwi fit, they plugged in and said there was no leak and worked for a few days, then went warm again.?
I would rather sell it cheaper so that you can fix it. Please buy on the assumption that the misfire is continuous and needs fixing ASAP. The misfire wouldnt happen for the garage, just said a slight lower reading on Injector 2, but not really anything major. but as the misfire wouldnt happen for them, they couldn't be sure it needs replacing. Audi main dealer said no faults can be found..(If I was keeping it, I would replace the injection wiring loom (It was replaced 100K ago), first and see if that fixed it. Loom about £120 fitted. I can't wait 1-2 weeks to book in again.
It of course has stone chips and there is only a small dent where someone knocked a mirror off, not very big, prob size of a 10p under the wing mirror, and scratch below where the mirror hit the door, about 2 inches and the mirror case has scratches underneath, but the body has been replaced - heated and electric all fine. There is a tiny bit of bubbling at the outer edges of the front wheel arches, but other than that there's nothing else I can think of, no bumps of scrapes, quite a few tiny stone paint chips on the front off side bumper area.
Please only bid if you are happy with the above and happy to buy, it’s sold as seen as all on eBay, but as all cars sold privately, there is no warranty implied or otherwise.
The service auto indicator doesn't count properly since the last service, but that's a 2 second reset, which I can show you.
Happy to let this go for a fair price, it’s served me well!! Any questions please message.
If you do buy - 'buy-it-now' or Best offer, I can arrange some version of a contactless handover of keys/ car sanitised etc. And may be able to deliver it. Paypal please.
If you drive it it may be fine, but I wouldn't want you feeling bad if it misfires, as it is sold as a misfiring car. BUY on the assumption that it has a misfire that needs fixing as soon as possible.
No pondering once you say you will buy-it, and expect the engine to require misfire sorting and there's a blow from the exhaust.
Any questions please let me know.
