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

      With a full car for the test drive, did you guys act out some scenes from Ronin?

      Any GoPro footage?

      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....

      The ultimate answer to the question/statement posted in the thread title is:

      Any of them about which he creates a thread in TCL.

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!

      (I need a Kleenex)
      My B6 S4 had a no res/crossover Milltek exhaust with Milltek catless downpipes (necked down section removed) plus a K&N panel filter. Again I think that's what sold me.

      It didn't however compare to my LS1 Corvettes with a Corsa pace car and Borla straight pipes.

      I am ashamed to admit that many moons ago I knew at least three of the individuals in that photo from the "drifting" and "canyons" scene. One is currently in prison (maybe out by now) for carjacking a Z06 just to see how one drives.

      Quality people, those.

      I wouldn't want to spend the $1400 for the Milltek (assuming the purchase happens). Think something similar can be replicated with a removed resonator and an aftermarket muffler? I saw a video with a Magnaflow but it was too... Well, too "American"-sounding. Not sure what his actual setup was.

      Just buy a new Passat so that they have real leg room in the back seat.
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      It's the drunken car shopping. I mean we all want to do this, I know I do, but something always stops me from doing it.
      Touareg Hybrids are pretty nice, and the warm fuzzies I felt while driving the hybrid was actually the fingers of all of the German tax payers trying to reach into my wallet to get their money back. (Brendan@bwalkauto)

      2001 S8, 140K miles, clean title and no bumper to repair?
      $6,999 seems reasonable -- about the price of a used 2001 Civic in SoCal...
