    This is a tricky one...might put my RS6 on Consignment....

    Been thinking long and hard about this, the car is perfectly sorted out so it will be difficult to do. I just picked up a CPO 2012 911 Turbo S and will not have storage space for the RS6 unless I can work something out with local storage facilities (enclosed storage is $375/month in NY). I don't want to leave the RS6 sitting outside in the elements so I am thinking letting it go through consignment. I know the market is soft right now but I am hoping for something in the $22 - $23k range based on the condition of the car. Would be great to hear thoughts from you guys.

    Attached is a description of the car with some photos, I have more detailed description and photos. I will getting professional photographs taken including the underside of the car, and maybe even put it up on BAT. I am planning to sell the car with stock Euro 19s (has Winter Pirelli SottoZeros though) and selling the 3 piece OZ summer wheels separately.

    I am the third owner but I have all the receipts since new from the previous two owners.

    The car looks really nice, and it shows a very high level of care and maintenance, which is critical for these cars. I think you are going to dinged on the timing belt. I know it's still within the mileage range, but it's getting close, and it's been 5 years, so I think it's technically still due. People with try to knock you down a grand or two on that. I would consider getting it done so you can advertise the car as "Needs nothing, ready to drive and enjoy".

    Thank you...Yes was thinking of having it done when I did the VC gaskets but visual inspection showed it was good. I know some folks don't strictly adhere to the 35K miles/5yrs thing based on usage and environment

    Sad to see it go but hopefully it finds another great home. I've seen this car in person just a couple of weeks ago, and it looks and sounds great. Let's see if it can find another lucky owner that knows how to care for it as you've done. Good luck with sale.... and congrats on the Porsche.

    Dave and I have been communicating on this....he does longer intervals based on usage, environment, conditions etc. Always with visual inspection of course

    Beautiful car, love the euro headlights. As mentioned above, you will be dinged for that timing belt for sure but the car is worth it, just not sure that people are willing to pay that much in this market. In a few years, i'm sure it would sell for this but again, storage and keeping it if you can't is just not possible sometimes. Good luck with the sale!

    Ok so what kind of intervals are we talking here gentlemen. 50-60-90 k. I’m in the same boat as Dave 5K a year and climate controlled garage. Well at least heated during the winter months and the car hibernates all winter with monthly oil warm up rides on dry roads. Dave you don’t worry about that dry 8 percent humidity Arizona air drying stuff up?

    Keep in mind, that you're putting those rare turbo 5v heads at risk.
    5y/35k is a sane enough interval. You can delay the replacement, if you have to - but read above.
    I wouldn't push it past 50k miles. Age - less critical in my book, but be sure to regularly check for any signs of drying out (cracks etc).

    My understanding is the interval might be related to the bearings. Those belts should not wear significantly faster than other cars, but the guide rollers are stupidly small. You could probably run the belt a long time if you could inspect the rollers regularly, but by the time you tear it all down to inspect, you might as well replace them and the belt.
