colicabcadam

Fireman dan

colicabcadam

my mate wants a d2, he has a thing for them, final edition ?
Fireman dan

Final edition?

What's one of those?
Fireman dan

I think it is one of the last reg to be made in this shape.
Adrian E

Mine's a Final Edition - they came with fixed spec incl bi-xenons, blind pack, extended leather and 20" wheels as standard from the factory and some 'interesting' colour combos.  Only available in 2002.  20" rims were an option on other S8s.

If yours has heated rear seats, solar sunroof, electric rear seats etc etc then it's not an FE.  Pics will soon tell us

Will the dealer be able to tell me with the chassis number?

Thanks.

Possibly, but to be honest if you post a pic of inside and out one of us can tell you straight off what spec is, pretty much  

A Final Edition is nothing to write home about (I forgot to add GSM phone prep with external antenna on nearside rear quarter, sat-nav/TV are std on FEs) apart from being near the end of production.  A well spec'd non-FE will trump an FE on the toys front.

Mine's had RNS-E, Bluetooth and Milltek added.

Get pics up
Fireman dan

Pics will come as soon as I collect.

Tha is for your time peeps :0)

Really appreciate it.
HPsauce

2002 is bound to be FL, 40V so 360PS (sorry not hp).
Just to be different mines a 2003 but a D2 and NOT the "Final Edition" either. Probably sat in a field for a while before being registered.
Fireman dan

I have got a printout from the dealer today of
The spec that came on the car.

Mentions bi Zenon lights.

No electric rear seats though. :0)

Did the miltek make a nice difference to the tone?
Adrian E

what's the interior/exterior colour combos?

Milltek makes a massive difference - stock exhaust sounds far too subtle from outside the car, but from inside there's not much difference on the couple of S8s I've driven.  The Milltek makes it sound like a V8 whereas the stock exhaust is more 'zingy' when you rev it.

Will see if this works (the sound quality isn't great as it's just a pocket digi cam) but gives you an idea.



ETA - the engine was warm, by the way - the exhaust wasn't though!
Fireman dan

That sounds lush.

I think it will be silly not to upgrade exhaust.

People do panel filters too?

Nope, panel filters = potential for world of pain due to oil contaminating the MAF sensor.  There are some that claim to be oil free, but that basically means they filter less well than the stock paper item!

You can hear induction noise with the bonnet open but generally it's all about the iron fist in silk glove approach to power  
Fireman dan

Stock dealer filters it is then :0)
Moonwalker

Drill your air box, it's hard to believe how much difference it makes. Proper V8 noise from the engine under full throttle, mine sounded amazing.
Fireman dan

Std filters CHECK

Drill piece CHECK
Fireman dan

More pics to come. Just a quick one for now.


Adrian E

Looks lovely - rare colour too defo not a Final Edition in that colour but expect it at least matches it on spec
Fireman dan

I the colour. Was reason I bought it  

Had the spec sheet printed off at main dealer.

4 sheets!! Lol
Fireman dan

Love
Adrian E

More pics defo required  
Fireman dan

Just swapping reg plate over then I will have a couple
More pics after another valet.

Cheeky clay and wax at weekend
HPsauce

Difficult to tell what the colour is - is that Avus Silver or what?
Norrs2

Very very nice S8.

What colour is that? Looks almost like Avus?
Adrian E

I thought it had more brown in it but wondering if that's just a trick of the camera and it is Avus?

Paint code for Avus is LY7J if it is
Fireman dan

Where will I find paint code?
HPsauce

Build sticker. In Service book or boot well.
Fireman dan

Will have a look tomorrow :0)
