  1. selling my car

    I have to agree with the others Fenn. You brought that car to Lutterworth if I remember. I have just bought a 2001 S8 with nearly all the toys, a few problems I have sorted with 78K in my favorite colour and I missed paying 3.5k for it privately and gave a dealer 4.5k, he wanted 5.25k.
  2. The range of springs and shocks for the Audi A/S is mind boggling and you will find different spring rates on the S8 dependant on whether they had bi-xenon (with self leveling), single xenon with a tow hook from new or no tow, no xenon. You won't go far wrong fitting S8 front struts and springs from a PF S8 to an PF A8 sport. I belive the worst that can happen is the front may be a few mm lower.
  3. It's not electrical. The clue is in the selector lever position. If your in park and you can spin the wheels then the tranny is probably in reverse. When you reconnected the selector cable to the box there was a bracket to hold the outer cable; behind a heat shield just above the passenger side cat. There are 2 bolts there and the plate that pinches the outer cable has 2 elongated holes in it to allow it to be adjusted. Slacken those bolts and ensure the selector lever in the car is all the way forward in park. Using a long rod, ensure the selector cam on the side of the transmission is all the way forward; push the bracket forward and do up the bolts. Now try to start. If it starts. Carefully select reverse and see if it will reverse. If it doesn't reverse, then adjust the plate a bit toward the rear. Try to start, if it starts, try reverse. Happend to me!

    Knackered box. Offer silly money and get a refurb.

    Got a couple of pictures.. First prize for the Raffle..... First prize for the Treasure Hunt..... The dog danglies I think you'll agree!
  8. A8oc ANNUAL EVENT THE DETAILS

    Unfortunately not enough people have signed up for the Buffet and the A8oc can't afford to underwrite the buffet to make sure there is enough for all who may partake on the night. We'll decide what to do in the morning, either reserve a section of the garden room for bar meals or the resturant for a more substantial repast. The alternative is to cruise to the 3rd best fish and chips in the UK, the best of course being in Penzance in Cornwall!

    A chrome (wrapped?) R8 southbound on the M6 just north of charnock Richards this afto. R8 reg to! I liked it unde the heading of 'if your going to flaunt it; FLAUNT IT!'
  16. Questions from a new S8 owner

    Neds a replacement wiring loom as well due to he different layout of the amp and subs.
  17. A/C fan

    These are only my thoughts as I run a lot in Econ mode as I am tight! When in Econ mode it has just switched of the AC compressor but is still trying to control the temp in the car as set on the Climate Control. With no cold air it just blows harder. I find when it is blowing hard if I switch off Econ mode after a few seconds the fans die down as it can control the car's internal temperature better with the chilled air. Mike
  18. Woohoo! A8 D2 ringless front grille

    Made by a company in Germany. Look the dogs nads imo. Pity they are FL only.
  19. To LPG or Not LPG, that is the question...

    There are quite a few LPG users on here, but we are the 'converted'. The cost does seem to put people of but once done people seem to be very happy with the running costs. On the D3s there are quite a few who have managed to get the filler point inside the petrol filler flap; so completely stealth.

  21. To LPG or Not LPG, that is the question...

    I have over 60k on LPG at and am getting the equivalent of 31MPG out of my 4.2 V8. It took me 21k to cover the cost of installation and I went for a Prins Multitronic. I have had one failure of an ECU clone which cost me £400 to upgrade to the latest generation. Do it your pocket will love you.
  22. A8 D2 GPS Black Hole!

    The issue is the athermic glass in your windscreen. It blocks the GPS signal. I got around it by buying a re-radiating ariel. Like this one.
