I gotta tell you, this post almost made me spit coffee all over. Funny as heck!
Liam: Sounds like you got your money's worth from that motor. Trouble is, nothing else compares, so you can't replace it with just anything! Hopefully, the next ride was/is just as satisfying.
Yes Indeed. A difficult act to follow. Very difficult to find an A8 over here with bigger than the 3.0 V6 TDI now.
I did get to test drive a 2010 with a 4.2 TDI that was a heck of a motor.
Only problem was the seller seemed to me to be a bit of a Pablo Escobar, I was happy to get out of there.
I ended up buying a 2015 A6 with a tiddly 2.0 TDI. It is rated at 190 HP with a 7 speed DSG so it can move.
I was quite surprised when I drove it and I get about 1200 Km from the tank which over here costs about €90 to fill up.
