Default Wanted: D3 A8

Hi guys. New here, and looking to dip my toe into A8 ownership. So just wondered if anyone had anything for sale?

I have a budget of between 6500-7000. So hopefully looking for a facelifted example. Would prefer closer to 100k rather than 150k too.

Engine doesn't really matter so much. I'd live with the 3.0 TDI, but would prefer the 4.2 TDI (would be the ideal engine). Would also consider petrol's in the 4.2 or 6.0 variety. Not so keen on the 4.0 TDI or the 3.7 petrol if I'm honest.

Spec-wise, the ideal would be to have 3G MMI, but I think that'll be a tough push at my budget. As would B&O. But if an example pops up, then I'm in. Would also prefer LWB, but that is not a deal breaker. Being that I have 2 young kids to come with me most of the time, I'd prefer black leather ideally, as it might be easier to keep clean. But, again, not a deal-breaker.

I live in the North East of Scotland, but I am willing to travel (recently went to look at a car in Durham, have, in the past, flew to London for a car).

Any ideas on what I should be looking for? Where I should be looking? I'm scanning AT several times a day, as well as Gumtree. Also facebook groups, but they only really give a 100km radius, so it's difficult to know where to set the starting points to cover everything.

This did just pop up, but it doesn't seem to compute: https://www.gumtree.com/p/audi/2009-...tro/1282396938

That looks entirely too new, and well specced, to be that cheap. Maybe they don't know what they have? But, to me, it looks a good couple grand under-priced (i.e. I wouldn't have expected that to be so well in my budget). Of course, it does have cream leather, and the 3.0 TDI, and no LWB, all of which I'd rather not have, but the age and MMI, and MOT history on it has me wondering.

I would have preferred something a bit newer (facelifted ideally), but low miles might work too. Especially as it'll no doubt be cheaper to tax.

Any more info?

Hi and welcome

There's this on ebay, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162842023232?

Car looks to be in good condition and fit's part of your wish list. A few other extras would have been nice such as sports or comfort seats, sunroof.... but does have good kerb appeal.

Check out my signature for a 2010 3.0 TDi I have for sale (135K miles)

Its in lovely condition and just been serviced. Would be supplied with full MOT and warranty etc, but would be a bit above your budget. Good car though, drives like half the miles and all the toys work exactly as they should

The 3G does make for a more modern feeling interior along with the other facelift touches.

Yes. I'd imagine the 3G does make for a more modern feel. To be honest though, I only wanted it for the SD card slots, lol. Looks a bit complicated to get an older A8 to play your own music via BT / USB / SD otherwise.

To be honest, my budget is a bit strict just now. I wouldn't be able to push it I'm afraid.

The colour is quite rare factory option: Cardamom Beige seats over black carpet with black dashboard and beige alcantara headlining. A really nice contrast.

All wrapped with a Daytona Gray paintwork:

Works well - All the benefits of a nice light interior, without having to worry so much about dirtying the floor mats
