Is insurance all ****ed up where you live, or something? Here I am pretty sure that the "estimate" is just that, and the body shop has the ability to increase that amount based on the work needed.

I'd call a local high end dealership (Audi, Merc, BMW, even exotics) and pretend like you own a car by that make and ask them if they have any approved body shops local, or where the see the most work done on those cars and the best quality.

They didn't even really launch it either. Motor Trend tested the S8 to 3.3 seconds. Thats crazy for such a large car.

I haven't driven the S8 yet, but I drove an S6 and that thing can ****ing rip like you wouldn't believe.

Well A8's are the size of a small boat, A8L's are even bigger, lol. And to just think about it over 85% of the metal in an A8 is Aluminum. Imagine if a less advanced manufacturer (IE American or Asian) made a car exactly like the A8 but without the advanced Aluminum structures just how much it'd weigh.

I was at Audi the other day to buy oil. I didn't realize the A8s come with the 4.0T now. So I'm betting even the base A8 moves pretty good. Also that 4.0T is almost as efficient as the 3.0T, I believe. Want daily driver S6.

Also, yes buying oil at the dealer since the low level came on and it was a mile from my current location. Well worth it since the girl in service was smoking hot.

Hot woman in service department? The universe has imploded on itself. I say that is the biggest single downfall of working on cars for a living: Female coworkers are non-existent or Fugly.

And yes, the A8 has the 420+/- 4.0T that's found in the other S cars as an engine choice. The S8 is a 520 4.0T, I'd like to see what that beast can do with a tune and exhaust, haha.

Well she's not a tech.

I thought APR was getting somewhere around 550 with their tunes on S6/7s. But the S8 has better turbos, IIRC, so should be capable of more if the rest of the drivetrain can handle it.

I took my sister's RDX into Acura for its service and pretty much every non-tech/non-salesman there was a hot, late 20s/early 30s blonde or brunette. The damn place has a coffee shop inside.

Going to the strip one week from Saturday. Hoping to run <12.8. Hopefully the weather stays cold.

pics of the repair. Keep an eye on it. Repairs can look good at first, but the quality of the shop/work determines how well they hold up.
