Hello group,

I've been on here a long time as a lurker.  Maybe because I didn't need
much help!  But I am offering a 99 A8Q for sale in Georgia.  I am about an
hour above Atlanta on I-75.

The car is burgundy (maroon) metallic with the traditional cream leather. 
It boasts the full summer package so badly needed this year including
SOLAR roof, special glass, sunshades, etc.  The automatic fan really does
the keep the interior much much cooler.  Of course it has all the usual
stuff. Everything works as it should.

Winter package keeps heated seats throughout, and steering wheel.

Xenon lights. Standard 17" wheels.  BUT the reason I love this model:  the
all red interior illumination.  Something about that U-Boat look.  As some
of you have mentioned.  It is just the best.  Nothing else really
compares, imo.

With 82K miles, the car is in good shape.  Has renewed brakes and few
suspension components replaced.  Doesn't leak, no bad smells.  And the
fuel mileage is really amazing for a V8.  At least, I think 27 on the hwy
is pretty darn good.  The tires are Pirelli Allroads, and they make a good
deal of noise.  You pick your own.  There are some scratches here and
there, and it's not perfect anymore, but it doesn't matter.

 I'm going to a newer A8 because I just have to have one.  So, catch it if
you're interested.

Asking a paltry $8900.  For all that.
