I miss my car...



Someone on the A8/S8 forum just posted a picture of it when they saw it abandoned at our A8/S8 techs place.

Anyone see any S8 engines for sale, must be AQH or AVP then please let me know. A X pipe, Pro Detail, S8 plate and KW coilovers will be done as soon as the engine is in.

I thought ben had an engine for you?...............Ohh and I have piccies as well!!!

Know how you feel mate.!! I miss my 5pot more then my 2 exs put together.
Moonwalker

Oh no Amanda, but the ones you have of it it is probably missing a few bits?

Ben has a few S8 engines I'm sure, not one for me though. It isn't to much of a biggie as if I can't get an S8 one then a supercharged A8 one will be going in (plenty available) but would still prefer to have an original S8 block! Even if it means taking the AQH out of my new car, haven't fallen in love with that even though its got more toys then any other D2 in the world!

Come on Amar!! Get off yer arse and find an engine for this beastie Please!!

Surly you have asked around for engines?

Have you asked Grizz?
Try Will on 07784 549552 he breaks Audis and is based in Northampton, try All Audi in Bristol on 0117 949 4136
or Audiden who works in a breakers up here in Inverkeithing on    07815 538885

there must be an engine suitable for your car somewhere in the UK..... So never mind anything else for it concentrate on engines and not looking for RS6 brakes a few weeks ago. We'll worry about stopping it once it moves


or trailer it up here and I'll make broom broom noises for you

LOL, I have been baby sitting my 12 month old nephew and he keeps making 'broom broom' noises. I think its because he sits in the back of a B6 V8 S4 with a Milltek every Mon - Fri for 20 miles!

I'll give those numbers a call, the RS 6 brakes were for the new car but just going to get rid of that now and concentrate on the green one. Another guy on the forum is revealing his supercharged S8 at ADI this year, so I've been waiting to see how it turns out before giving mine the go ahead.

Green  one for me everytime Amar!

Any phots of the interior please?

 

stick a V8 tdi in it  
Moonwalker

That would be nice but then I might as well just buy a 4.2 TDI D3 which will have a slightly nicer interior and will take the hassle out of it all.

Haven't got any photos but here's the interior build thread.

Thanks for the link



how come it's been at AVP so long? Why buy the blue car instead of just getting this green one sorted?

It's sad to see such a lively car mothballed like this  
dest

Loads of models came in Cactus green, its not an exclusive B5 colour atall.
For example, my ex has got a early A3 in it too.

If you love the green one so much, why not take all the best bits and engine from the blue one and swap them over?
Moonwalker

Hi Dest, I know it wasn't exlusive just to the B5 and never said it was, I said it was normally seen on them. It is however a special order on my car and no other D2 known is in cactus, I paid A LOT for the blue one so would rather sell then chop it up. I'm not to fussed about the extras now that I've played with them all. Been there done that kinda thing. This will be up for sale after an MOT and new discs and pads, watch this space. Cheap to run too, as on LPG. Had a new gearbox and replacing the breather hoses (common) this Sat
ANDYRACER

What sort of price will you be after for the blue one fella?
Moonwalker

Hi Andy, well I paid 8.5k for the car about two months ago, the guy actually wanted 9k but as it needed discs and pads he let me have it 500 cheaper.
I'm going to do the discs & pads, replace the breather pipe which is all it needs really.
It wasn't cheap but when you start to add up the cost of the RNS E with the bluetooth,TV and reverse cam would probably come to about 1k, the LPG is 2k the new gearbox was 2.5k it made sense. (Buying an A8/S8 without having a new box is like buying an RS 6 with DRC, its not a matter of if it goes its just when, as long as you keep the fluid changed then it will be fine, this had its fluid changed recently with all Audi oem bits and fluid) Also none of the S8s for sale have anywhere near the level of spec mine has! Some don't even come with Bose, nevermind a solar sunroof!
I haven't really decided on a price yet, but I would like to get as close to what I paid as possible. Its worth pointing out the car is an A8 shell with S8 engine,Box, Diffs. No different to an S8 in any way, even has an S8 speedo. The engine and box have 113k on them, but box was refurbished. The body has 150k.
