Careful, Ron, on any D2 A8/S8...I posted a couple days ago about the tranny problems.  I know some people have avoided the problems, but not many.  It seems to be a design defect.  Rebuilt trannies will run you about $4,500, unless you live near Chicago.  There's a guy there who goes by the name of Tozo on Audiworld who rebuilds them for about $3,200 and is very in tune with upgrades, etc.  Everyone who has used him is very happy with his work.

So maybe the price reflects his NEED to sell the car before he moves & not necessarily the condition of the car. & in that case I bet he'd even drop the price a bit more.> I really hate to call him & ask/grill him... cause I just might drive away with it.> > Ron> > > > _______________________________________________> Audifans V8 mailing list> Send posts to: mailto:V8 at audifans.com> Manage your list connection: http://www.audifans.com/mailman/listinfo/v8> > You can help keep the audifans site running by shopping at http://audifans.com/shop/>
