Default For Sale: Rare Audi A8 4.2 TDI Sport - B&O, Fridge, Adaptive Cruise, Glass Sunroof

Hi,

It's with a heavy heart that I've decided to put my 8 up for sale.

I've had it for coming up to 4 years since i bought it from Ian (aka 'IT' on the forum) and it's had a lot of money spent on making it special special and looked after.

It is easily one of the best specced A8 D3s for sale at the moment. For me, the colour combo is what sold me on it but the B&O, fridge, glass sunroof and ACC are what makes this car perfect. At the time, you could have easily bought an S8 with the options this came with.

A lot of you will know the car from my project thread (see link in signature below) and it is where i've kept a log of almost all of the updates. For those interested, here is the full list of options over and above the usual specs...

Mileage: 134k
MOT: Feb'18
Low Tax band: 290/yr

Factory options:

1900.00 - Sport inc sports seat, suspension, folding autodim mirrors
1500.00 - Audi Exclusive Paint - Azure Blue with pearl-effect finish (Z5K)
4500.00 - Bang And Olufsen Sound
850.00 - TV Tuner
290.00 - Heated front seats
1500.00 - Adaptive Cruise Control
400.00 - Tyre Pressure Monitoring
500.00 - Xenon Plus headlights
165.00 - Wooden 3 spoke sport steering wheel
1000.00 - Fridge
1400.00 - Extended Leather Pack 2
75.00 - Wooden gear knob
250.00 - One Touch memory (Fingerprint sensor)
375.00 - Automatic Boot lid
900.00 - Electric Tilt/Slide Glass sunroof
425.00 - Power door closure

Modifications done whilst in my ownership:

- S8 grille (bought new)
- S8 mirrors
- Facelift rear lights (bought new)
- 20'' Final Edition Wheels (Diamond cut and in perfect condition)
- 20mm hub centric spacers for the rear wheels
- Rear wheel spacers
- DRL headlight modification (so it looks similar to W12/S8)
- Audi Music Interface (AMI) to allow for plugging in/charging of smart phone and accessing music playlists
- Fusion bluetooth module (so you can play music through your mobile)
- HD dashcam (hardwired)
- OEM rubber mats - mint condition
- 1/2 the car was repainted after someone keyed it and it was done really well bringing the overall standard of the car back to excellent
- LED rear license plate lights (canbus error free)


Maintenance:
- All front suspension arms were replaced 3k miles ago at a cost of 1.6k and is unlikely to need replacing for the coming 30k miles
- Brand new electronic parking brake calipers last year...should last many years to come
- During the last 2 years, the 8 has been serviced by Jack Barclay Audi and stamped in the log book
- The aircon condensor was replaced about 3 years ago also

The 'bad' bits are as follows:
- Tyre pressure monitoring is disconnected (i bought it like this and never felt the need to buy new sensors and get it connected)
- Drivers side door soft close temperamental
- Drivers seat showing wear by bolster - have been quoted 170 to revive professionally but just never got around to it.
- One touch ID has never been programmed (got it like this and requires dealer to enable)
- 4 rings (logo) missing from the top engine cover - didn't come with it when I bought it
- About 1x per month, the parking brake gives an error. Applying and releasing the brake button a few times always cures this

The private plate will stay with me and the original will be put back on.


I am looking for 9,500 given the spec and the maintenance. I am not in a rush, but if you're interested, please give me a shout. At the moment, it's not yet for sale anywhere else as it would be great if it went to a forum member.

Yes ... but I don't want to jinx by sharing it yet as it's not a certainty at this stage but it will be equally special in my view.

That said, it is unlikely to have the spec that this car has and I doubt I'll ever find a factory sound system that will be as good as the B&O...this bit is something that I find particularly hard to let go of with this car. It's amazing how the B&O lets you hear sounds in songs you've known all your life and played a million time but never could fully appreciate. It's really quite special...

What a beautiful car.

When I bought it years ago, I knew when I clapped eyes on it how unique it was, and I can honestly say I've never seen another one anything like anywhere since.

Even the 'fully loaded' W12's are all just black. or silver or some other mindless default colour scheme.

From memory it was first registered to someone - not a dealer. Not a demo. Someone sat down and actually said 'I want to buy this'. The colour combo, and huge driver orientated spec from factory make it unlike any other D3, ever.

I really hope it goes to a good home that appreciates it

(and yes, I'm twitching ever so slightly, and working hard to resist buying her back !)

Ha - good guess but alas no. A D2 would belong in the 'dream garage' though.
