Here it is, yet another silver B6. But here is why. Let me back it up a bit. Shortly after acquiring my co-workers silver, automatic, front wheel drive(CVT) B6, for winter… I was quickly criticized from everything with an asshole, condemned from the inner circles I’ve worked on for the last 33 years of my life, disbanded from my family, egged and ridiculed anywhere I drove. But that’s not what pushed me over the line. One day it snowed, I took the CVT out and it was the lamest thing I drove since old man winter. I jumped into angs 3.0 and thought, how the fuck am stuck with the CVT. After many failed attempts to try and switch the cars without ang knowing, it became apparent that I was stuck with the CVT for the winter… well unless I found something else.

Enter the relentless Kijijijiji searching. No different from any other day really. This unit came up for 2k. It was manged a bit, but it was 6spd and had some work recently done to it. 6spd is quite desirable, and usually commands a premium, but I’m sure people saw the quarter panel and kept looking. I asked a question one week, and got no response. I then sent a message, ”take 1k?” after about a week later he said come take it. I had the Huff do a 402 point inspection on it, as I was out of town, and once he deemed the roof rails to be acceptable, he locked it in for me with a deposit. Drove it home on the weekend from Qc without any issues and started tearing into it.

Hopefully I can bring this unit up to par quick enough for the winter season, but if not, it'll still be a solid car to beat around in the summer. Not sure what the plans are for the CVT, maybe sell it, or keep it in the family as a B car. nothings really wrong with it other than a leaky transmission seal. But who doesnt have that?

Bleed brakes
Snub mount
CVT Trans output seals leaking
Flex brake lines cracked
Motor mounts shot
Valve cover gasket leaking
Oil cap seal rock hard

S4 OEM US bi-xenon headlights installed
Extension whip made for conversion
AC pulley by pass serpentine belt installed Gates K060450. AC pulley sounds like a pile of marbles in a metal trash can and felt like stubborn sand when turning.

Grab this unit for a song. 850 cold dineros. Partly because its FWD CVT, but what ever, it'll get the job done after the debacle of a B7 I dealt with. Its in solid shape, with documented dealer maintenance from day 1 and old man driven its entire life. So I figure, maintain the snot out of it and probably pull the 1.8 for something else later down the road.
And yes, it is pretty much the same as angs car. And yes, I now I have 2003, 2004 and 2005 B6. And every motor offered in that generation :D

After day one of tear down. The airbox is out. Filter looked new. The intake manifold is out, man that thing was a pain... The fuel pump cam follower is clearly new. Exhaust manifold is all disconnected, just need to lift it out. Head looks clean. Going to need to remove the cams to get the head out because the shafts are in the way.

Valves after 250,000km. Not bad, I was expecting more carbon build up.
