    S5 swap!!!

    So, the motor on my S5 blew up a while ago. Audi okayed a swap.

    Unless something happens in the next two hours, I'll be in a Phantom Black pearl A8L 3.0 for even money.

    I would, but I don't care enough for another $400. I literally walked in and good ol Albert quoted me the one on the floor.

    SCHWING!

    Downgrade at $90k over $70k? Don't think so.

    My dad talked me out of it.

    Turns out, it's exactly what I was trying to avoid. Took a hit for $1270. Oops.

    Pics of the S5 count? After it comes back from service. The whole reason for me going there today by the way was to trade the loaner Q7 for another loaner since it was 1) filthy 2) smelled like smoke and 3) was actually MISSING the panel that covered the gas tank.

    It's about what the S5 was. I'm stoopid for doing it. Now I have to put it back on my insurance and wait for them to comp me for the 1270.

    Womp womp.

    It was a steal for the money.

    Because of 1) all my pain and suffering with my goddam car falling apart and 2) because I twisted his arm, they took about $8k off. [email protected]$79k.

    In my dad's words, I liked the deal, not the car. Still sad. I absolutely HATE my car.

    Welcome to the club...

    Just wait for the new S. That's what I wish I did instead of leasing this POS I'm in now.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Even the 3.0 is pretty impressive to me. I love the new A8. It's far more interesting than the boring Lexus LS.

    The A8 is nice but you should have tried to swing a deal in your favour on an A7. The A7 is one of my favourite cars. It is absolutely gorgeous. The S7 is probably a wicked car to drive.
