What's up guys , Canadian Rider .
I'm with my friend Joe .
We're in Montreal , Quebec .
We have come to pick up my dream car that I've always wanted since high school .
It's been actually 10 years now since I wanted this car .
A 2008 Audi R eight .
So we're meeting the owner , we're at his house .
His S3 is here actually .
So you can see this in Bernardo Gray .
It looks really nice , but 2008 R eight , this is going to be the first pick up and check my buddy who was in Montreal a week ago , checked out the car for me and he said he was in good condition .
It was basically what it was described as in the ad .
So this is actually my first time .
I'm going to see it here .
We're going to check out the car here .
We're going to drive it to Audi Prestige in Montreal .
They're going to do a pre purchase inspection from there .
We're going to take the car and drive it back home .
You good sleep at night .
So I just keep raining , but I don't need to .
So we got the car out here we're just gonna do a little inspection , we're gonna make sure on the outside everything is as it is , there's no dents or damage and I'm gonna check the inside of the car , but right now like first impressions it's looking really nice and it's so dirty too .
It's looking this good .
So that's just like dirt .
The tires are like bald and that's something I know I'm gonna have to replace .
These are the pilot super sports .
They'll get me back home but , and then if you come around here , so these are the A DB one rims , these are the standard edition .
So these are really nice .
They're in this gun metal gray color .
It kind of compliments the black , which is also kind of compliments the anthro kite gray side blade , which is really nice .
Um Let's just go around here and check it out .
This all looks good .
Only got 37,000 kilometers on it .
It's a 2008 R eight .
Everything here looks normal .
I don't see anything .
I'm just checking the paint for damage .
Brakes have about 50% life .
The actual brake pads and the rotors look fine .
They're not scored .
Spenders are fine .
The lights are all working .
All the led lights are on .
It's good .
So body of spine , I don't see any dents or damage there .
Is that rock chip up here that Peter mentioned , which can get filled ?
It's not a big deal .
Um ok , so let's go in the interior and see inside .
So this is the interior .
So we do have that bolster wear , which we already discussed and we knew it was here .
So this is the six speed manual .
Um , let's just get in here .
Oh , wow , this is uh this is crazy .
What a car .
So inside everything looks good .
Um Joe , do you want to step inside and we can check out , make sure everything works inside .
So the interior looks good .
So let's just check out kinda turn this off .
Turn off the eight uh this .
So now this is just us and the engine , let's just make sure everything works .
Horn works signals looking good there looking good there .
Um We'll check the back .
I'll put on the four ways to check the back in a bit .
Wipers and again , I'm just checking everything , making sure that everything works in the car door , uh windows .
So that all looks like it's good .
Um ok , so the brake clutch shifting .
Ok , so everything on the inside looks good .
So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take it for a test drive and we're gonna go to Audi Prestige and get the pre purchase inspection done .
So I think we'll do that now .
So we'll just go now twice , you broke my heart .
I , so we just gave the car to the dealership .
They're going to be doing the P P 300 point inspection .
It's going to grab some breakfast over here at Joe Place , going to feed him nicely for helping me coming here for the day .
But right after that , the only thing I want to check is on this car specifically , they had a $600 repair on the back bumper .
I just want to make sure that it's actually a 600 repair .
It wasn't something else .
So that's the only concern on the test drive here like it rode .
Well , the Magna rides were fine , so they weren't shot .
I don't know if they're leaking , but they weren't shot on the drive here .
Engine was strong .
Transmission is strong .
So all we can do is wait for the master tech and then we'll actually go underneath the car and check it out , but we're going to get something to eat first and we'll come back and we'll do that .
So this is actually the new version .
So this is 10 years later how the actual R A looks like now compared to mine .
Honestly , I prefer the look of the 08 .
I prefer the look of the older generation .
This is like trying to be too Lamborghini , in my opinion .
I don't know .
I don't know , Joe , what do you think ?
Uh the S R P is a little high 230,000 ?
How are you ?
So , sorry .
I just wanted to check out underneath if that's ok .
All Right .
Good engine .
Once it's running , it's good .
How about these mag mag ride sharks ?
I know they leave .
That's another issue I found .
Ok , on this guy here , this guy heavily sweating , you might need to replace that one and the front , that one .
And so when you got a pretty large sweat on the shock , yeah , that's something I knew he told me about .
It's like apparently on these cars they go right away , it's prone .
Ok , sweet .
Ok , thank you .
I know I don't want to take away from it .
You doing it ?
And the other thing was I I mentioned it is like apparently these early model with the frame .
Yeah , it's good .
Yeah , that's good to hear .
That's good to hear .
Yeah , just getting all the time .
You , you called that .
You said it over here , you're gonna see the thread a lot thicker .
But once you see the inside , I should show you when the car was uneven wear .
You just , it's the way the suspension car is looking good .
So again , the things he mentioned , um and the seller was honest about the things he mentioned was the mag rides are leaking .
So instead of the rear two , like re thought it's the left front , I'm sorry , the right front and the left rear mag rides that are leaking , tires are shot , brakes are 50% like he said , it may need to be replaced soon .
We'll let this tech do the rest of his job , but everything else he's saying is looking good .
So the steel looks like it's going to go through .
The main things we are caring about on the car is transmission and engine .
So it looks like transmission and engine are solid .
The rest of the car is solid .
Um Yeah , so we'll wait for the inspection .
Put this inside and keep this on the dash .
So I got everything .
All right , I have my keys .
I have all three keys .
I have both keys .
Yeah , good .
Yeah , thank you very much .
I appreciate it for following me on Canadian Rider .
So it's all good .
He's gonna see what's gonna be up with this car , but excited to see uh what's the for ?
All right , drive safe on these .
Thank you .
See you later , man .
Um Do you wanna go eat somewhere ?
Uh I don't know .
I'm like there's nothing much around here .
Well , we can just drive and then stop by and see .
All right .
All right .
So one is held by .
All right guys , dreams come true .
I am in the R eight .
We're headed back to Hamilton .
I can't tell you how amazing I feel getting this car , everything worked out perfectly with the seller .
He was really forthcoming and honest with the car in every respect and it's just a beautiful car .
I can't believe it .
This has been since 2008 when I seen this car come out in the first year I was in high school .
I remember I was like , this is my dream car and to own my dream car .
I just can't tell you how amazing it feels in the perfect form , right ?
With the black , the gated six ft shifter , 420 horsepower on this high revving V eight .
Just a beautiful car .
What captures me with this car is just the timeless looks guys .
This car is absolutely stunning .
It's 10 years later since it was introduced .
It's still when you see it go down the road , it's just breathtaking .
It is a beautiful design by Audi .
I honestly , I don't even like newer Audis , the new R eight , I prefer this model over the new R eight .
Obviously , the interior and the new ones is updated and way nicer .
But exterior wise , this thing kills it no more manual in the new R eight .
This thing has that beautiful gated six speed manual transmission .
Absolutely amazing to see that here and the engine is just phenomenal .
That's the biggest thing I was worried about is the engine in good shape , the transmission in good shape and the engine just pur it is purring right now .
It sounds healthy and strong .
Obviously , it's only got 37,000 kilometers .
The gated six speed manual transmission is just amazing .
And this is the 2008 model guys .
This is the first year that was introduced , the owner was also kind enough to have both keys and the full set Audi actually sent him the gift package for the R eight and it includes all this nifty stuff and an ice box .
So having that included with this kind of car , with the two keys with a car in this great shape for a first year model run of this generation of R eight .
Just I'm super happy .
It's kind of unbelievable to think a decade ago .
This was my dream to maintain and here I am put the clutch down I think started roll down the window .
It's nice .
Look leather everywhere on the dash .
It's all leather .
You're not going anywhere until I get tired .
Relax , then you can drive .
Where do you think you're going bud ?
Well , there he goes .
Hopefully he doesn't kill himself .
So I actually just wanted to show him the car and he took it out for a ride .
Look , he's , he's gonna be reckless , ok ?
He's being smart about it .
He's being smart .
Yes , it did .
You check ?
All right guys .
That's it .
The Audi R eight is finally in the garage .
I expect to see a ton more videos coming out soon .
I expect to see some other exciting announcements coming up in the channel .
