"New" A8 Owner


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have just bought a A8 4.2 Quattro. Really amazing condition and under 100K for £4,700.00. Seemed a bargain! A few issues to sort. Not sure about the 21" alloys or the stainless steel exhaust either. Not very subtle.

This is my third A8 having had a couple of D2s previously and always regretted selling them.

Great car. I've owned A8's non stop since around 2000, from D2 V6 to D4s and V8 TDIs. I do agree D3 was a brilliant model.

I had real trouble with 21" rims, with two cracking dangerously. Probably due to all the potholes in the South of UK. I went extreme and managed to fit some 17" rims, which were a very close fit over the huge floating discs on the 4.2 TDI. These had really high profile tyres so looked a bit odd but were so much better ride than the 21's
