Hi there all :)

Post by Britrb on Thu Feb 12, 2015 3:01 am

Hi all,
I'm new to the A8OC, and I'm an alcoholic! erm, not yet an Audi owner, however I soon will be!

My car history is fairly chequered, from Citroen to Ford to BMW to Lexus to Jeep etc. I currently own a massive '91 Toyota Landcruiser with a 4 inch lift kit (Which I think I'll keep as it is just so much fun!) My favourite type of car is the Luxury Super Saloon, I've owned a BMW 750 (Awesome V12 which was just right for the German Autobahns while I was based out there, and two Lexus LS400's I loved all of these cars. I have never owned an Audi and I think its time to start! I now have my eye on a 2002 s8 which looks nice, but what do I know!!

Here's the one I'm looking at now... Mainly because it's within budget, but I like the colour too....
There would be a link here but I'm not allowed to post any links for a week or so... The car I'm looking at is the £3395 one that's currently on Autotrader UK. Its dark grey and looks awesome!!

I was wondering if you guys have any advice on what to look for in a pre loved S8. I know all the usual stuff like the big smoke and yoghurt - unusual tire wear - rust in the corners - knocking - dodgey mods etc. (I don't want a boy racers project car, they are usually just about to fall apart from ill treatment!)  But is there anything S8 specific that I should be looking for? (Apart from buckets of pure refined awesome of course!!)

My budget is around £4500-£5000 and I'm still looking around the interwebs...
Here are some of my previous cars in action (many years ago!!)
The BMW325 GT LJ 485 is my first BMW!


Have fun all,
Brian Smile
