  • Coming to Europe this fall - Looking to bring back genuine S2 to Canada

    Hey folks, I'm planning on going to Europe this fall - September - and one of the purpose of this trip is to ship back a genuine Audi S2.

    So if you have one and is thinking about selling it, let me know ?

    If someone has already been through the process to export from Europe to Canada, let me know ? (planning on doing a Roll On - Roll Off from Antwerp to Halifax)

    I'd prefer an ABY but am willing to consider all options. Some interior trim options are preferred, i.e. 3 spoke steering and the leather seats with more ribs in them.

    I'll go anywhere for the good car at the right place.

    I am not looking for a show car ... I can't afford it. Preferring a well maintained, non-modified (or just slightly if any), non-restored car over a refreshed car.

    My budget is more or less 10 000 euros.
    Some will think that it is conservative, but I think I can find the shoe that fits within that budget. I don't mind doing some mechanics on it for the right price but body,under-body and interior must be clean.


    Note : Sorry lads from the mother land (Great Britain) ... I can't plate a RHD car here, there is a moratorium on plating RHD here in Québec Canada.

    I also speak French, and a little bit Spanish but no German nor other European language.


    Pass the word.

    Thanks

    (I may also be looking to bring back a B5/B6 Audi A4 Tdi Wagon and a Transporter Westfalia Syncro Tdi --> I'll need some insight on where to look for those at what kind of price range as well).

    Cheers

      Assuming you can't triple your budget... good luck with your search, I'm sure there will be something at that price.

      Let me know if you need assistance with German (or Eastern bloc) communication beyond Google translate I potentially have the ability to collect/transport/store a vehicle in/around Poland if required, too, with enough notice.

                Another option would be to buy this and convert it when you get home?

                  I I was going that route, I'd take my existing CQ and replicate the S2 ... but that is not what I'd want to do

                  Thanks for sharing though ... I this was local, I'd be strongly tempted !

                    If it was local to me, I would buy it for the seats and other S2 parts!

                            A good website with the help of a translator is mobile.de

                            Also, again using Chrome and its auto translator feature, I have found some luck using regional Ebay sites from Germany, Poland and smaller Eastern European countries. It's just tedious and time consuming, but once set up in separate tabs, only takes moments to make daily checks. If I had better language skills I'd be into local forums as well, as I imagine that's where the best bargains are to be found.
