Just seems like a perfect candidate for the show to me -- A rare, iconic car (in Ronin green too), low price, just in need of a little of Ant's TLC. Done right they could easily double their money.
Iíd probably be one of those that would buy it back! It has happened before on the show.

TBH, paying someone like Ant the equivalent of about 2 grand to do all those jobs, plus whatever else he may or may not find would be a bargain! The guy is a genius and makes Edd China look like a novice. Donít get me wrong - I love Edd China and he is bloody clever, and he was brilliant on the show, but Ant takes it to another level. He will tackle any type of job there is by himself, be it bodywork, mechanical, air-con, fabrication (literally anything), whereas Edd would farm out a fair chunk to other people.

I think I'd probably do the same. They never factor-in labour and they usually make very little profit so the cars are usually an absolute bargain at the asking price, especially given the added value and provenance the cars gain by being on the show.

You could be cheeky and contact his business, Mike Brewer Motors and ask if they could let him know that there's a 'Ronin Green' Audi S8 he might be interested in for the show (there's a live chat on the website too). Alternatively, it might be possible to drop him a message on Facebook/Twitter. Personally I think the timing is perfect for Wheeler Dealers to do a D2 S8 and yours is just the right colour and condition too.

Default No longer for sale

Sorry to disappoint guys and gals but my situation has stabilised and Iím keeping the old girl. Gonna get those niggly jobs done and enjoy her for as long as I can.

The day may come when I get another RS6+ (had one for about 3 years and seriously regretted selling it). If I ever see a sprint blue one come up for sale, Iíll sell a kidney
