RE: 96 A8 4.2 not starting.

What year is your car? I sounds like the immobilizer.

Oh, never mind. I don't think the 96s came with an immobilizer.

RE: Front End Noise

Yeah, change the tie rods. I changed the control arms and my creaking noise went away. They usually account for 75% of the odd noises. the only other things I can think of are the wheel bearings,...

RE: A8L D2 vs D3: pros, cons, opinions?

For $30,000 I'd look at 02- 03 S8s. The 01s sell for the low to mid $20s.

I haven't priced out 04 D3s but I don't know if you can find any in that price range.

Short answer. Yes. On the facelift A8s the radio is linked with the immobilizer. I think people have gotten around it but it's a pain in the ass.

RE: A8 Performance

RS6 exhaust won't fit our car, it's two separate pipes. An S8 will.

Perfomance Mods:
Coilovers
20mm rear swaybar
Cold air intake
X pipe
cat back exhaust
big brake kit
better tires

RE: Concentrate in Boston area

$17K for a 99 is way too high. Spend $4K more and get a 01 S8.

Track a couple of cars on Ebay to see where they sell and that'll give you an idea.

I paid $10.5 a year ago for my 98. $3000...

RE: 2000 A8, will not engage reverse gear!

There are no fault codes?

RE: Clicks and Squeals

Wheel bearings would be my guess for the clicking.

Did you check the tie rods?
