Default Bought my first Audi last December

Picked up this used 2016 S8 last December (2018) - 24k miles when I got it, now at 27k.

I absolutely love this beast. It drives like I'm on clouds when I want it to and like a mad wild animal when I'm in the mood.

So far there have been a couple hickups with it that were there when I bought it, just didn't notice, but since it had 9 months of factory warranty, I was able to get them all fixed

Items fixed:
1k/3k vibration issue. This was suppose to not affect 2016 and newer according to everyone, but it affected my car and the flex pipes were the culprit.
Leak from coolant pipes near thermostat. (they originally thought it was the thermostat and replaced that first)

So far, i've added the rsnav apple carplay / android box to it and yesterday I just wrapped the steering wheel myself. I'm super impressed with this steering wheel cover I got on ebay (link below and I promise I'm not affiliated at all, just crazy impressed with this quality and out come).

I actually originally ordered it with the top and bottom as the fake carbon fiber and the sides as the suede, they mistakenly sent me it with the sides as perforated leather. They were quick to tell me they would send me out a new one, but in the mean time, since I had no experience with ever wrapping my own steering wheel, I went ahead and used this one as a ginny pig. The results are pretty amazing and blew away my expectations. I've since asked them to modify the replacement so that it's suede on the side and perforated leather on top and bottom. The carbon fiber looks great, but the feel is just weird to me since it has a rubbery vinyl feel to it, so I think I'll ultimately be happier with out it. But as you can see from the pic, this looks damn close to what a stock from factory would like like if it was offered. I think I paid $65 for it, so super stoked.
