Hello all! Long time no see!

Its been years since my D2 left the stable and I defected for the E60 5er....sorry! My A8 was undoubtedly my favorite car of all time! I see a few familiar names (tozo!!!)

Anyways, I'm popping...

The sudden acceleration shifted the weight from the fronts to the rears, which oversteered

I would take oversteer over understeer anyday! The only thing scary is if you have stock suspension and the D2 is a bit boaty if its pure stock. The Quattro does a lot for stability.

Anyone in Cleveland area want to get together for the F1 race on Sunday?

Holy schnikes! What have I been missing!

So LemonA8 is the infamous...or notorious HACK? Dammit, just when I was feeling the need for a D2 S8....and the tantalizing prospect of forced induction modding....I'm sticking to my pokey bimmer...

Spent the weekend in NYC...Audi Forum on Park Ave...very nice guy there!

My buddy Erik is obsessed with R8s. We got to sit in one and paw all over it. He offered to start 'er up and rev it a bit, but the battery was dead....and you can't get to it via hood for some...

Just so you know...those wheels on Paulw were photoshopped....but a great idea to get them together!

I know there is another site somewhere that has wheels of D2s, but I think the wheels in that site are outdated.

I will say that BMW service is pretty nice. Its better than Audi...but then again..I wasn't taking

in a 10 year old car!

The 530i sport package will be a little more brisk than my car, but you will miss the power of the S8 for sure, if you are into that (which I'm assuming or you'd own an...

I definitely do not tear around on a strange motorcycle! I know better than that!

Its funny, in my teens, I was invincible...now in my late 20s.....I can't even afford to have a broken ankle for the sake of my career!

I have always (well not always) but do now, respect high...

You know....I've been giving this whole 911 notion a lot of thought...probably more than one should

dwell on a material object....its not like asking someone to marry you or anything! Anyhoo...I'm thinking a motorcycle is a fair compromise for myself. I've always wanted one. I ride all of my...

damn....that does look nice... I can't really have a 2nd car right now....too nomadic

I move every year or 2 years with my career. Can't have more junk to lug around. I've finally got rid of my multiple sets of wheels from the A8 a week ago! I need one car and a duffle bag and I'm...

if I was in the market for a 100k car...8k would probably be chump change and we wouldn't be talking about this! the 911 I'm looking at is half that!

Another factor is this...besides the fiscal analysis of this deal.

Its surprising to hear my old man even agree with me with such fiscal recklessness! (he's the ultimate calculated financial freak! better for me to inherit...but I urge him to treat himself more...

Ok...doing some soul searching now....

Not exactly having buyers remorse....but I kinda all the sudden have the means to buy a 911 Carrera. A beautiful mint specimen is local at Fred Baker's and my problem is the fact that my stoopid...
