Default Wanted: low mileage D2/D3 S8

Evening all

I am possibly in the market for an S8, either D2 or D3 variant (maybe both )

Must be low mileage, sub-60/70k.

Condition, history and provenance more important than spec

Would also consider a UR-Quattro, with less emphasis on the mileage

Please PM me if you have, or if you spot something, suitable

Cheers

Expensive and will probably need some money spending on it but certainly looks nice.

I think we've discussed this before and Ian's opinion was that this looks like a special order car, rather than a final edition. Mark and I have the only two FEs in this colour combination that we know of, and we don't have nearly as much leather! But FEs were definitely a moving feast, so I wouldn't rule it out.
That said, if there's a deal to be done after a scan and a check on gearbox service history, I'd jump at this - IMHO, it's lovely!

There have been a couple of low mileage D3 S8's on ebay/AT but they are overprice in my opinion. This one isn't too bad considering a half decent spec (although no B&O) and is a facelift

As noted, spec is not important, FE is not important

History, condition and provenance are

And not being 15,995

I don't mind paying for the right car, but that's almost double what it's worth

These are interesting, first one looks a better buy to me (not the most important factor, but spec is good), provenance and condition look good and price seems not far off reasonable
