    The listing says that there is a vibration when idling and in motion. It most likely is the driveshaft support bearing going bad. The 928 had transaxles and the driveshaft runs at the same rpm as the engine. Bad driveshat supports are fiarly common but relatively expensive to fix. When I was shopping 928's a few years ago, the estimate repair cost was over $1,500.

    Just an observation, but I sold a non-running '87 S4 for just $2k less than that buy it now price approximately 4 years ago. Of course my car was a 5 spd...and it WAS red...

    If you do a search on ebay on 928, you can find a 928 S4 crate motor for $1500 or somewhere thereabouts right now. The combination & a little work could make a nice driver with plenty of spares. 'Course the interior of the car in question doesn't look "nearly flawless" to me...

    I will agree the car is far from perfect and will need some work. I doubt it will get anywhere the buy it now price. I like the color combination and would be interested for the right price. Any opinions as to what it is worth?
