    I still have a pile of parts to install. Including a new rear arm and cap. Genuine rear spoiler as well.

    Making the final decision on how much more to paint. There are small rock chips on the hood and fenders and the two rockers. I just wanna drive it! Lol

    S8 seems to be the new car of choice for peeps. I have been watching them and almost bought one but decided to do an avant swap on my rs6 instead for now. Keep the updates coming though. Im interested in seeing them!

    Well you can have my RS6 Avant conversion already done for 20k. Certainly you can't duplicate it for under 30

    You could fly down and drive this to camp allroad and then back to MN.

    I'm guessing that you already have one if you kept the liftgate from your S6, but I've got a US spec license plate holder that's all black (not the smoked reflective background) and might have already been modded for dual fogs. I also had it professionally polished but never installed it and it's sat for many years. Probably needs redone. I might just toss it or throw it up on one of the sites where it will get more traffic. LMK if you need it.

    I've also got a set of professionally powdercoated matte black door handle pulls that are indistinguishable from the OEM RS6 ones.

    Now you have me interested in the Audi S8

    I am about the sell my RS6 ( its Sad but true )

    What year(s) are you guys referring to and what price point should I look at
    Also, are these S8 high maintenance compared to our RS6

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    thank you

    Do it!

    13-14 are my favorite. I donít care for the facelift

    38-45 depending on condition and colors

    maint is gravy train easy. Donít let anyone scare you about turbos, I have a fix for that.

    10.80s with tune and downpipes

    its the hd RS7 engine

    Nothing to get excited about.

    38-45 for a 130 sticker car is the sweet spot. Mine had 56k miles

    Amazing noise. Not so amazing performance (comparatively).
