Pretty sure shoulder-fired rocket launchers can only be fired from W116 450 SEL 6.9.
That being said. I LOVE D2 S8, very understated and sweet cars.
In for more info.
(Yes, yes, yes... I know, I know, VadGTI is making stupid threads again).
2001 S8, 140k. Rebuilt trans 15k ago, timing belt/tensioner service 10k ago, with records.
All I know about S8s is this:
1. You get one if you need something fast, but you have to add nitrous;
2. Useful for whacking Peugeots and Citroens off the road;
3. Sunroof is big enough to allow ease of use of a shoulder-fired rocket launcher.
Also, where, pray tell, might one find a used and relatively cheap D2 S8 front bumper?
The actual vehicle:
Woman + parking curb = needs new bumper (I kid, ladies, I kid... Seriously, though...):
$100 says you wont buy this either.
Found the craigslist post. Seller wants $6,500
Let's make this real Ronin-esque... Throwing a $6k E34 M5 into the mix :

Front bumper is super hard to find.
Transmission. Transmission. Transmission. I won't get another one unless the tranny has been recently replaced. (Check the paperwork to make sure it was actually done, and the info on it, what kind, rebuilt by whom, etc) -edit did not see you did that Buy that ****.

replica wheels are for wankers
I love the D2 S8. So much so that I set out to buy one last year, but I couldn't find one that had low enough miles or was in good enough condition. So I bought an RS6 instead.
Although I've never driven one, the S8 is supposedly a very nimble car for its size and is very well put together - fit and finish is supposed to be outstanding.
