    Looking at a A8 D3

    I'm after a new car and been toying of getting a A6 C6 but every now and then a A8 comes up and I'm like ooooooooooo pretty.
    With the lack of A6s near me and only the odd A8, I thought I'd entertain my self and check out some A8s.

    I got a couple of days off next week in Bristol and going to take a look at a A8 that caught my eye.

    Apart from the screen and the suspension pump, is there anything I should look for?

    Can't see it properly but the bonnet is not shut in the main picture i can't see the one right at the top.

    If you are are def thinking of getting the A8 you would save yourself a lot of trouble if you buy the VCDS cable and scan the vehicle when you go to view it. there are so many codes they throw up it's unbelievable. I don't think i go a caouple of months without having to clear codes (most minor)

    The car in the picture is sold.

    I got Full VCDS so going to be plugging that in and getting a full scan.

    Looking at 06 3.0TDI quattro A8 tomorrow.
    quad zone climate control, rear blinds, parking sensors, TV and full Audi history.

    Can't wait.

    154k.

    Looked at LWB and don't think it would go well with the Devon and Cornwall roads.
