Although it is far from the 90K(?) timing belt change interval,
that t-belt is 7 years old.  If I were buying it, I'd budget
a t-belt change into the price and have it done right away.

If you don't push your V8 hard, then the A8 will probably
be OK. If not, you can always upgrade the suspension.

An A8 is on my short list of wants.
