    Wheels & lowering

    Hi Jezt, There's often lowering kits on ebay for sale, so keep your eyes peeled there. As for wheels, these are such a personal thing that you'll need to identify what you like, and what you deem to be a reasonable cost. There's plenty of options out there though, including just swapping...

    97'A8 4.2 Q gearbox

    Audi don't recommend a gearbox service on these gearboxes at all. However, it has been my experience that a gearbox serviced every 50k miles or so offers greater reliabiliity than one that hasn't. It is often a good starting point for anyone experiencing issues too, so I'd recommend finding...

    2004 A8 with 'issues' can anyone help?

    Simon, it does sound like you're the victim of the early D3 electronic gremlins. Do persevere, as once sorted you'll love the car :icon_thumright:

    Does my 98 2.8 have a tiptronic or Multitronic gearbox?

    Jezt the most reliable box is the 4-speed which you'll have in yours. The 5-speed was introduced in late '99-2000 so you're ok there. Do you know why the alarm keeps going off? It might well be that there's something inside the car, that's setting off the interior sensors?

    Audi A8 d3 facelift

    Hi Justin, I've just spotted this post. You say you're looking at the pre-facelift D3, are you talking the 1st or 2nd facelift? Early D3's have had problems with the MMI system, so ensure you check everything works before committing to buy one. As for a DIY facelift, I don't expect there'd...

    2000 xreg quattro 4.2L torque converter

    A8's have been problematic with gearboxes for some time, in particular the 5-speed boxes found in the facelift models from late '99 onwards. It might help to have the gearbox serviced. Audi don't offer a gearbox service, but when pushed will do one. It involves draining all of the oil out...

    Audi 2007 S8 Aftermarket Brake pads

    I'm surprised that you're having issues with the ceramic brake set up. My understanding was that they're supposed to be dogs danglies when it comes to providing braking. However, I've not experienced them, so can't describe if what you've described is normal, or a result of not bedding in...

    Timing Belt Tools

    I believe A8 Parts may have a set that they rent out. If you need any parts for the '8 they're the obvious place to go too, and if you're a member of the A8 Owners Club you get 15% discount on anything you buy from them.

    Audi Driver's International - 10th October 2009 - ***Official Thread***

    I think he had an Audi 1.8T engine in, and therefore thought he'd get on....that's how he got in :s Was a great day out, didn't get to see any of you guys, as was running around like a daft sod sorting A8OC club stuff out......however, I did take the '8 out, and thrash her around the circuit :D

    D2 S8 v D3 A8 4.2 FSI Quattro Sport

    Keep the S8, that's what I'd be doing. Whilst the D3 is the more modern car, the D2 stil maintains a degree of exclusivity that the D3 will never achieve. This is primarily because the diesel D3 exists, and has meant that more people have purchased them as company cars.
