Don't know the car myself and the listing isn't exactly informative is it? However, have you looked it up on CarJam? The mileage (UK import in 1994 so should be showing miles not km's on the display) has not changed since December 2011 @ 173,000 - so either it's not moved for 6 years (unlikely since it has been wof'd in the last 6 years) or the odometer is broken and the mileage could be anybody's guess!

It's also the smaller 3.6L V8 not the 4.2 - if that makes any difference?

How long ago was the carjam report created?

Yep, looks like it from the photos . I had the same on my 93 s4 - it was about $1100 for a new disc if I remember right. Luckily I had a wrecked s4 in the driveway with front struts w HP2 brakes when the UFO discs wore out. :)

edit: 'only' 462 euro each plus shipping from audi tradition  :o

Ive seen this car around a few times. Owner doesn't seem too clued up on what they actually own and/or just likes tacky stick on badges

Are these two pics taken at/near a VAG specialist garage? or just outside a house somewhere? Because if the V8 owner is not too clued up on what they own I would have expected the owner of the uber rare T25 Tri-Star Syncro Dokka behind it to know exactly what it was!  ;D ;D ;D

Haha that Tristar is my dad's.  :D
I suspect the owner works around here, as I've seen it a couple times parked during work hours. Many shops in the immediate area

AAh lucky dad! We had a T25 Syncro high top camper back in the UK, sold when we emigrated - still miss it loads even though we now have a T5 camper which is quicker and more economical.
