what i read [forget where] is that a body shop requires totally separate 
facilities, tools, etc for alum and steel, because if any steel shavings, 
dust, etc get onto bare alum  it will corrode the metal. aka if a sander is 
used on steel it can not be used on aluminum. i actually had never heard 
that before i had read this in reference to the A8, but hey im NO engineer.

that said the 8 is a KILLER used deal.  =)
