    Audi S8 2002
  1. Best of luck with the sale, I always laugh at people saying,Its a bit expensive,seen others cheaper,blah blah blah.Oh really. Have usually found the so called cheaper ones end up costing more over ownership,and have more annoying dings and marks etc,so stick with the price, a genuine buyer will always pay the premium
  2. S8 owners - be honest...

    Hi Iceblue, I was in the same situation as you,ie,going from a 2.8 to a S8,but mine is really a hobby car as I commute to work on a pushbike. Fuel connsumptuion on mine is about 16mpg,mainly round town,been on one 200 mile motorway journey when I picked her up and that averaged 24mpg. I was very happy with the 2.8,and even thought about keeping it and own both,but the S8 is so so so much better in every way,I wouldnt drive the 2.8,if I had kept it, as the difference is unbelievable,6 months later still enjoying every aspect of ownership. Best of luck if you decide to purchase
  3. Hi,as the title says,looking for the generation 1 nokia phone holder for a S8 2002,the one that fits in the armrest.Had a parrot bluetooth fitted,which worked ok,but didnt like the fact that its not original fit,so removed it.I know its a bit old school etc,but as the car is a second/hobby car,not bothered about swapping sims or using divert from my main mobile phone etc.Prefered nokia 6310i Cheers Rich

  5. SKC code required swindon area

  6. 53 plate,TT 3.2 DSG problems!!!!!!

    Hi All, posting this on behalf of a mate who has bought a TT only about 6 weeks ago,private sell,and now has the symptoms of the dreaded DSG gearbox issues. The cars mileage is showing about 52K,but service history a bit vague,not had the gearbox oil and filter done at 40K. Early signs, were not changing gear that smooth,then went into limp mode,took car to Audi,who reset the computer,foc.Dont know what the fault code showed. Car drove ok for a handfull of miles,then limp mode returned and the orange engine symbol.Which is how the car stands now. Contacted Audi,they discounted the mechatronic box,saying the car requires a new box.possibly due to the original fault code? He has been offered a second hand box,from a 2008,4K ,TT but with a different code to his,his is GYU,the other is KQA.Will this fit per chance? Any ideas or pointers,location is Bristol, if anyone knows of somewhere to go? Many thanks Rich
  7. Hi, Posting on behalf of a friend,can anyone point me in the right direction of obtaining the above,SKC code, for a 06/A4 cabrio?Rather than going through the main stealers!!He has purchased a remote from fleabay,same frequency,part number etc but understands that without the SKC code,you are stuck. Cheers Rich

  10. What Prices for a 2000 S8

    Was this purchased from York Audi recently per chance?Nothing sinister, its just that I enquired about one, identical mileage, spec etc, to yours,but it sold straight away!!!!so it must be a good un.

  12. Wing mirrors stopped working but fold???

    Hi Alex,sorry to hear you have got a problem!!!!!!!!! This may sound bizzare but do the vanity lights work on the sun visors?If they dont then its the fuse,it happened to me once.Check out A8 parts forum,I listed it on there,here is the link Vanity lights and Wing mirror - A8 Parts Forum Cheers Rich
  13. M.O.T and TAX

    Hi,if you go to the parkers website, it will tell you what you will pay for your car depending on engine size,date of registration etc,yours will be £245 at the most. As for the diagnostic port,on my 2,8 sport its under the ashtray under the climate control. But as from Sunday when I pick up my 2002 S8,I could tell you then for sure.But someone will be along shortly to confirm I expect
