My A8 replacement
Always wanted one from when I first saw one, but with kids and stuff, it never happened.
Now the proud owner of a 1 owner 65k miles with FASH :)

Awww…she's rather cute (it is a "she", presumably?). Seriously though, that's nice, much better in black than any other colour...;)

I've always been tempted by one myself. Very nice. How is it to drive?

225 BAM engine I presume? So effortless (had a Leon Cupra R 225 back in 2005)

A stainless exhaust and a light map with supporting mods will see 300bhp, should that be your cup of tea

Very nice, i honestly think they look superb (need the RS4 style 18s) despite the clichéd hairdresser comments that they always attract. I just sold one of these after i rebuilt much of the car (specifically head / new turbo being the majors) and with a remap of 265 ish felt a fair bit quicker than my old S8 FE and with new O2 sensors returned around 31 MPG !!

The chap who bought it drove 4 hours home and called me on arrival to tell me about his smile and what a great car 'i had built' (not quite!) which i was very proud of - the rare moment when the buyer returns home and feels quids in to :)

It does look in good nick.. Always fancied picking up a 225 that needed some work and turning it into a weekend/track car.. then I went an bought a new car, so that's on hold again :)

Just needs some lowering springs and spacers 15mm front and 20mm rear is the best width. (get Delta MICs).
