Just out of interest, were you looking at this to replace your D4?

Yep we live near there and was over there at the end of last year . Took an old Honda CRV out which looked out but once my wife took it for a spin around the block found that the it was missing and also had a blow in the exhust and the engine light was on. they where looking for 1.500.

I did see that Audi A8 there and it looked good on the outside but i'm gald I did not look into things anymore. That's a lot of problems to deal with and would just walk away..I think at they time they where looking for about 3.500
CRAZY
