massive coolant leak

My stock 200q20vs both are quicker than my 2002 S8, but I think the S8 may be more stable in the twisties.  Haven't really had a chance to push it yet, just judging from in-town cornering.

agreed. it's not a matter of what the car is worth (they are undervalued
IMHO). it's the simple fact that a good running, clean 200q20v with
appropriate mods (chip, suspension) will not only waste a good portion of the
new $50k+ sports sedan - it still has the fit and finish and amenities to
compete with most new $50k+ sport sedans as well.

and it's cool to get "the wave" from guys in new Audi S8s ;-)

i say fix it and get something like a used nissan sentra for the daily grind.
keep the audi for the fun stuff and road trips.
