Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S8

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="71120"] words: Bill, photos: Tom Mullane Ok...I can already hear people saying Why are you featuring a 19 year old S8 with 256,000 miles?!? It's not even a manual transmission swap! I will counter that by saying yes, this is an older Audi with over a quarter million miles but I have two reasons.
