Originally stickered at just over $70,000, with only 18k miles:

The A/C cooling and massaging seat sounds awfully good!

It shows that people who buy expensive cars only care about the label.
Hmmm, I could wait a year and pick up one for even cheaper and do some modest mods to it...

Nice - add the turbos from the Bentley and you would have a serious highway cruiser!

Beautiful car.  Where is the lottery when you need it.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Eh...never liked it.  Would rather have an A8. Those depreciate quite a bit as well. I'm sure you could even find S8's with decent mileage for ~$45,000.

You can find S8's even cheaper.

Saw one go at auction for 36K with less then 40K on the ODO.

I'd MUCH rather have an S8 then a Pheaton....
