I am proud to say our V8 has been in the family since new. It was the
first V8 delivered in Canada and I bought it off my dad in 99. Still
runs strong and I drive it daily in the winter. It has 250KM and I do
all the maintenance thanks to you guys. I bought my wife an 04 Avant A6
and I much prefer the old V8.

I purchased my first V8 in 1997 with 114k on her...flew to UT and drove
her home to Seattle - it was love at first drive. :) She now has 204k
on her. I still own her, but she gets very little road time now. I'll
likely put her up for sale fairly soon as I just don't drive her
I purchased my second V8 in early 2000 for my wife. She had 130k on her
when we bought her. I sold this one in 2002.
My daily driver now is my 2001 S8 that I picked up in 2006...once again,
it was love at first drive. :)
