    Just took a delivery of the Hellicat. I found it on dealers lot in Long Island, NY. Terrible drive home through NYC but it is here. Paint is flawless, fit and finish is great. Has the two tone interior with red seat belts. I am happy with the car, everything appears to be as it should be.
    The picture is the car with my son, who is not a happy camper after a long travel day of which included train rides and going in and out of NYC twice. Next step is registration (purchase out of state, so I am dealing with it).

    Cole, congratulations of getting an A8 car. Last month you posted about FH854388 that you had ordered. Is that car now available or did your dealer cancel the order or are you buying that one also?

    congrats, enjoy the car. If you don't mind sharing, was there a large ADM on it? I could care less what people pay as long as they are happy. I'm just trying to get information for others on market conditions so they might be able to use the intel for their own search. Finding an A8 on the lot is rare nowadays.

    I have a tri coat white pearl M6 coming in. Probably in 6 weeks. Supposed to be built this week. I am not sure what I am doing with it. The deal is at MSRP. It has upgraded seats, nav. and brass monkey wheels. I will let you know

    Yes, this one had a ADM of $ 4,200.00 which I reluctantly paid. I have changed my mind and wanted a A8, love the the transmission, the change cost me $ 4,200 since I have one coming in at MSRP. I do not know what I am doing with it since a part of me would like to have two; a M6 and A8. I just got a call of another A8 on a dealers lot with a 10K mark up, already posted it here. Yes, I was determined to find an A8 for this summer and receiving call back from alot of the dealers that I contacted.

    Thank you, he is cutie with green eyes. I should waited to he had some food before dragging him back outside. It is really his car, however, he might to wait to he is in 30's to drive it. I sound like my father who did not let me buy a 440 6 pack road runner when I was 16 because he was sure I would end up wrapped around a tree (he was probably right). Now I sound like him.

    You are right, he has OCD also, no stopping for food, just turn and burn until we got home (he did not want to stop and I did not either). Going through Manhattan twice since there was accident on the George Washington Bridge, was tough

    Here is another photo of the car. I was worried that the paint would have flaws, no flaws found
