Default Picked up my 2007 A8 today.... so nice.

I picked up my 2007 A8 today. Car looks amazing in and out. Previous owner was meticulous. Here are a couple of quick pics.

I was an Audiworld member previously when I owned a modified 2001 A6 2.7T. It is nice to be back in an Audi. My daily is a 340+whp MKV GTI with all the suspension and brake stuff.

Ah, nice, I like white. Good for sunny places like California.

Very nice! I have a white 2005 but it's not nearly that clean. I can't complain though as I only paid $8700 for mine. Welcome to the club!

Truth be told I would rather have the paint in black. Black is iconic after movies like Ronin and the Transporter. However this thing was so clean and priced so reasonably I just couldn't pass it up.

Thanks. It is going to take me a while to figure out which features it actually has and then a bit of reading on how to use them.

Thanks, it is a nice club to be in. I like it so much I think I am going to look for another one but the next one will be an S8 or the LW12.

Well I paid considerably more for this one. 21,700 but it did come with the remainder of a very expensive warranty so I have 34,000 miles or 2.5 years left on the warranty.

2007 A8 standard length 4.2. Under close scrutiny (2ft from paint) I only found 2 nicks in the paint and there are a couple of small indentations on passenger side that a dentmaster guy could correct easily. The front of the car has no chips, nor does the windshield. The trunk, the engine compartment look new. The car has 66K miles on it but very close inspection would lead you to believe that it had maybe 20K miles. The interior is almost perfect with only one time sign of wear on the start button (which I will fix).

Both cool movies, but the car in Ronin was dark green over tan, quite a stunning color combo. Both the cars in Ronin and The Transporter get a good workout. Even Liam Niesen gets to flog one in Taken, for a short time.

Beautiful car!! Super super clean! The previous owner babied that car. Also I see that the wheels have been chrome plated by the previous owner instead of the stock aluminum look. You have picked a good year since you don't have to worry about the timing belt and water pump service. As far as upgrading the start/stop button get the upgraded buttons which is silver which looks a lot better than the stock one. They changed it from 2008-10.

I agree! Excellent example!!

Does the start button have the fingerprint scanner? If you change it to the metal one you will lose that feature.
