      That's ridiculous.

      Wait... What?



      Faded and peeling bumpers, hood (you can see the faded spot on the hood) and headlights. No records, CEL on. Three gunmetal wheels, one silver.

      Drove so well, though. Pulled hard, handled great. Comfortable and grippy Recaros. Not worth what they're asking though.

      This.

      I bet in retrospect selling that thing feels like how I felt when I was caught shop lifting when I was 9. Sick to my stomach, guilty, dirty, and ashamed.

      PS Vad, the new owner of my wagon hasn't yet sold it for a poorly maintained supercar yet, I think we both made the right choice. In part due to the sale I am preparing to purchase a home, on the TOD, you are still welcome to visit, but please BYOPBACS (peanut butter and crack sandwich)

      Vad buys them with salvage titles and structural rust (which is hard because he lives in California, but he manages).

      At least Vad goes down these rabbit holes.

      Buy the 996. Get your first Pcar with the motor in the worst place imaginable. They're awesome.

      Honest question, did you drive it? I think I was suckered into buying my S4 by the sound of it, it ended up being a pretty boring car.

      Everyone's pulling for you, Vad.

      This is like the forum version of a reality show!

      You should shop it around. If Honey Boo Boo can have a show, so can you.

      It's funny you say that. I did drive it and it was a hell of a lot more responsive than the Volvo. Much lighter on its feet than the S60R, even with 3 TCLers + the seller on board. Still, I was ambivalent, since, on paper, the S60R and the S8 are pretty evenly matched, the mileage is similar, the MPG is similar, etc. The Volvo also "looks" newer.

      Then, I spent the better part of an hour watching (listening to?) to S8+exhaust videos on YouTube . I think that sealed it.

      This one was replayed many times:



      I still have the M3 for canyon carving/track/fun stuff. The S8 seems like it would be a decent daily, especially with that noise. GOD THAT NOISE! THAT NOISE!

      Sounds like The Truman Show. I think you've got something.

      Hopefully. I've never had so much trouble finding a part for a car. Every A8/S8 being parted out has the bumper sold. The first reply is always "Do you have the front bumper?" Used bumper places are all out of stock. It's like these things are made out of gold.

      THIS!!!! Not only I'm crossing my fingers that you buy it, But you will get to have your own reality show based around doing menial daily tasks around town.... That is until you get on behnd the well of the S8 and the show is transformed into 60 minutes of Ronin type car chases.....
      Show ends when you get home from the adventure style drive to the grocery shop, just to bring home a bag of Whiskas Cat food....

      At least 3/4-hearted, for Vad's Hollywood Tours of Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams®. Hell, I very nearly traded the S60R for a restored one .


      I'm still thinking about it .
