I often fantasize Iím in a Group B Quattro S1 flicking it around on a dirt road in Whales... this might actually enhance that. Silver lining. ;)

So I pulled the car out of the toasty garage and put it in neutral in my driveway and tried to recreate the noise and I was unsuccessful. Maybe the car thought I was an Audi technician. ;) I revved...

Regardless of what you decide, you have a friend with an S8 who will gladly grant you time in either front seat any time you like.

My vote is for you to keep the 4.0, but for your use case, the...

I most certainly CAN detect it in my Ď13 S8. Not by feel, I can hear it. This is especially true when transmission is in sport mode. The engine note changes and I actually get a very nice growl from...

My S8 is garaged, but itís my daily driver. Itís white with grey wheels. The white hides the dirt, but it does look dull after a week or two. The wheels are the color of brake dust but the brake dust...

i believe 17 inch wheels are too small for the A8 and that 18-inch wheels are the bare minimum size. The front rotors are 380 mm (400 mm on S8). Thatís nearly 15Ē before you count the caliper.

MTM has some options for you as well. This is old news now, but they have tuned the S8 to over 800-hp. It offers up near Veyron levels of performance. And naturally, the price is still shocking. I...

I believe they arenít shown by tire rack because the load rating in those tires doesnít meet the minimum for the D4. Our D4s put more weight on the front axle than the Panamera does due to its...

Mine does that as well. I think it just returns to the last setting for the passenger seat. The bolsters and lumbar return to neutral when the car is switched off.

my old speaker tested at a resistance of 1.5 ohms which is why I installed a 2-ohm replacement. To my ears the 2-ohm speaker was just producing sound more at a higher efficiently than the old and...

14 MPG on the highway is an indication something is hung up or perhaps you have a clogged fuel filter, a poor performing injector, plug, coil, etc. Really, it could be a lot of different things.

10-spoke 20" Forged Wheels from A8 transplanted onto my S8 - Power Coat: Yes or No?

I've decided I am going to basically retire the 21" wheels. Which is a shame, because I think they really give the car a great look. I will keep them as spares and maybe mount them for car shows,...
