Default 2007 Audi A8 4.2 TDI VS 2007 Audi S8!

Hi everyone!

I went on and sold that A8 in order to get the current car.

Gotta say the V10 sounds beautifull..

Have had the car abouth a month now and spent alot of money already..

But hope you like the result so far

It has all the normal bells and whistles, but i wish i had the B&O sound system, soft close doors and ACC. Other than that the car has:

- Lowering links
- Tinted windows all around
- S8 number plate
- 10,5 x 20 ET 40 wheels with 265x35x20 Michelin Pilot Super sport

Feel free to comment on how to improve my ride :-)

The photographer are editing the pics he took friday as we speak and these are the ones i got so far and i will upload as he sends them over to me:

Improve your ride? I would leave it the way it is, both of them are beautiful! To tell you the truth, I really couldn't pick a better one based on the pics....yeah, I'd take the V10! Damn, do I wish we could get the 07 A8 in a TDI here in the US. By the way, what does an 07 TDI A8 go for where you are? Nice rides!!!

Thanks for the kind words and i suppose there is nothing left to do..perhaps spacers to get the wheels 100% ?

A 2007 S8 like this is about 100 000 USD in Norway. A 4.2 Tdi is about 70-80 000 USD..

With your 4.2 TDI, was if factory front and rear end in Europe? It has a S8 front and W12 rear. Looks awesome. The exact combo I have on my W12

An average salary in Norway is about 85 000 USD.

Of course alot People make alot more and alot of People earn less but if you make 85 000 USD you can live "pretty decent" over here.

The 4.2 TDI did not come With S8 bumper and W12 rear from factory. It was done by the former owner.
