00:00:00,160 –> 00:00:05,839
i think singapore about 500 horses are

2
00:00:03,360 –> 00:00:08,080
enough right here actually 500 too much

3
00:00:05,839 –> 00:00:08,080
earlier

4
00:00:08,480 –> 00:00:12,719
hey what’s up guys here and today i am

5
00:00:11,360 –> 00:00:16,640
in the 2012

6
00:00:12,719 –> 00:00:19,439
audi s8 and i’m the owner mr lee with me

7
00:00:16,640 –> 00:00:19,920
so uh yeah a bit of introduction for

8
00:00:19,439 –> 00:00:23,199
this

9
00:00:19,920 –> 00:00:25,199
audi s8 sorry it’s a bit bright so yeah

10
00:00:23,199 –> 00:00:25,840
a bit of introduction for this audi s8

11
00:00:25,199 –> 00:00:28,720
this is the

12
00:00:25,840 –> 00:00:31,119
d4 or the third generation audi s8 this

13
00:00:28,720 –> 00:00:32,960
comes with a four liter twin turbo v8

14
00:00:31,119 –> 00:00:34,640
so it’s a kind of defaulted engine euro

15
00:00:32,960 –> 00:00:36,399
tanks it’s about four thousand dollars

16
00:00:34,640 –> 00:00:39,280
per year in stock form this car has

17
00:00:36,399 –> 00:00:42,719
about 513 horsepower but your car

18
00:00:39,280 –> 00:00:45,520
is about 650 right because yeah

19
00:00:42,719 –> 00:00:46,160
and uh in stock form this car does 0-100

20
00:00:45,520 –> 00:00:49,120
between

21
00:00:46,160 –> 00:00:50,000
like 3.6 and 4.2 seconds to give you

22
00:00:49,120 –> 00:00:53,520
some context

23
00:00:50,000 –> 00:00:57,440
that’s about as fast as a gallardo

24
00:00:53,520 –> 00:00:57,440
but as fast as a zonda

25
00:00:57,680 –> 00:01:04,400
well as fast as a faster than a bmw

26
00:01:00,960 –> 00:01:07,280
m3 e92 m3 so yeah this car is quick

27
00:01:04,400 –> 00:01:07,680
and this car is also 2000 kilograms okay

28
00:01:07,280 –> 00:01:10,080
so

29
00:01:07,680 –> 00:01:11,680
that makes the zero 200 timing even more

30
00:01:10,080 –> 00:01:13,280
impressive of course this car

31
00:01:11,680 –> 00:01:15,040
has all-wheel drive control over the

32
00:01:13,280 –> 00:01:16,159
drive so that helps to get it off the

33
00:01:15,040 –> 00:01:18,080
line quicker

34
00:01:16,159 –> 00:01:19,280
uh some cool things about this car is

35
00:01:18,080 –> 00:01:21,280
that this has the

36
00:01:19,280 –> 00:01:23,200
cylinder the activation technology so

37
00:01:21,280 –> 00:01:24,960
depending on the speed that you are

38
00:01:23,200 –> 00:01:27,280
driving sometimes it may shut off four

39
00:01:24,960 –> 00:01:29,680
cylinders so you’re coasting on v4

40
00:01:27,280 –> 00:01:31,520
v8 it helps you to reduce your petrol

41
00:01:29,680 –> 00:01:33,840
consumption by six to two percent

42
00:01:31,520 –> 00:01:34,560
and uh there’s also another cool feature

43
00:01:33,840 –> 00:01:36,880
which is

44
00:01:34,560 –> 00:01:37,759
uh something like an active noise

45
00:01:36,880 –> 00:01:40,240
cancellation

46
00:01:37,759 –> 00:01:41,200
technology where like there are

47
00:01:40,240 –> 00:01:43,920
microphones

48
00:01:41,200 –> 00:01:45,680
within this car that sort of cancel out

49
00:01:43,920 –> 00:01:46,560
the noise generated by the engine so you

50
00:01:45,680 –> 00:01:50,479
get a

51
00:01:46,560 –> 00:01:50,479
very quiet and refined ride

52
00:01:53,360 –> 00:01:57,439
okay so mr lee first question why did

53
00:01:56,159 –> 00:01:59,600
you choose this car

54
00:01:57,439 –> 00:02:01,360
and how did you get this car because i

55
00:01:59,600 –> 00:02:03,200
understand that you cannot get this car

56
00:02:01,360 –> 00:02:05,040
anymore in singapore like there’s zero

57
00:02:03,200 –> 00:02:08,479
for sale right now

58
00:02:05,040 –> 00:02:10,160
yes because i’m a person who like

59
00:02:08,479 –> 00:02:11,920
fast car i think a lot of guys also like

60
00:02:10,160 –> 00:02:15,280
fast car but

61
00:02:11,920 –> 00:02:18,080
i also emphasize on comfort so i do

62
00:02:15,280 –> 00:02:18,560
because i drive my car in a daily basis

63
00:02:18,080 –> 00:02:21,599
okay

64
00:02:18,560 –> 00:02:23,040
so i do not want to drive a full-fledged

65
00:02:21,599 –> 00:02:24,959
sports car every day

66
00:02:23,040 –> 00:02:26,800
i think it will hurt my back and it’s

67
00:02:24,959 –> 00:02:27,280
not very comfortable so i’m looking at

68
00:02:26,800 –> 00:02:30,480
those

69
00:02:27,280 –> 00:02:34,239
best of both world car like m5

70
00:02:30,480 –> 00:02:37,200
amg all these but

71
00:02:34,239 –> 00:02:38,080
amg m5 there is a lot on the market

72
00:02:37,200 –> 00:02:41,120
already

73
00:02:38,080 –> 00:02:44,319
so um there was once and i come across

74
00:02:41,120 –> 00:02:46,879
this car for sale for my friend yeah

75
00:02:44,319 –> 00:02:48,400
so i took it and at that time i was

76
00:02:46,879 –> 00:02:50,000
driving a 7 series

77
00:02:48,400 –> 00:02:52,480
but the gearbox have been giving me

78
00:02:50,000 –> 00:02:52,480
problems

79
00:02:55,920 –> 00:02:59,200
so at that time it was at the workshop

80
00:02:58,560 –> 00:03:01,519
uh

81
00:02:59,200 –> 00:03:04,080
the mechanic was assessing whether how

82
00:03:01,519 –> 00:03:05,760
is the repair course already so

83
00:03:04,080 –> 00:03:07,680
then uh the mechanic just called me say

84
00:03:05,760 –> 00:03:09,840
hey your gearbox cannot ready

85
00:03:07,680 –> 00:03:11,360
you must change okay so that time my

86
00:03:09,840 –> 00:03:14,560
services was eight months

87
00:03:11,360 –> 00:03:16,239
left see we expire

88
00:03:14,560 –> 00:03:18,480
and then this car just came along and

89
00:03:16,239 –> 00:03:21,680
then you fix my

90
00:03:18,480 –> 00:03:25,200
requirements so i just get it like

91
00:03:21,680 –> 00:03:26,560
oh it’s like you feel the pull but you

92
00:03:25,200 –> 00:03:28,560
don’t hit anything

93
00:03:26,560 –> 00:03:30,720
except the engine rumbling a bit correct

94
00:03:28,560 –> 00:03:32,879
it just

95
00:03:30,720 –> 00:03:34,480
the power is very linear yeah very

96
00:03:32,879 –> 00:03:37,920
linear yeah

97
00:03:34,480 –> 00:03:40,879
okay so then how do you uh get this car

98
00:03:37,920 –> 00:03:41,760
like your someone posted it up for sale

99
00:03:40,879 –> 00:03:44,959
ah yes

100
00:03:41,760 –> 00:03:46,879
okay my friends so i

101
00:03:44,959 –> 00:03:48,080
i see it and then immediately i just

102
00:03:46,879 –> 00:03:50,799
confirmed

103
00:03:48,080 –> 00:03:51,599
after i test drive how long was this uh

104
00:03:50,799 –> 00:03:54,239
six months ago

105
00:03:51,599 –> 00:03:55,920
oh six months uh you just you got this

106
00:03:54,239 –> 00:03:58,239
car you’ve owned it for six months yes

107
00:03:55,920 –> 00:04:01,040
and how’s your ownership experience are

108
00:03:58,239 –> 00:04:01,040
we short but how

109
00:04:01,760 –> 00:04:05,840
i think most of the people who drive

110
00:04:04,239 –> 00:04:07,040
this car will be very happy about it

111
00:04:05,840 –> 00:04:10,400
because he’s got

112
00:04:07,040 –> 00:04:13,040
comfort of course it’s not as s class or

113
00:04:10,400 –> 00:04:13,920
seven series but it’s more than enough

114
00:04:13,040 –> 00:04:16,959
power

115
00:04:13,920 –> 00:04:18,720
yeah it’s the power yeah because you

116
00:04:16,959 –> 00:04:19,519
have the best of both world power and

117
00:04:18,720 –> 00:04:21,440
comfort

118
00:04:19,519 –> 00:04:23,360
not like certain cars you have power no

119
00:04:21,440 –> 00:04:26,320
comfort or something

120
00:04:23,360 –> 00:04:28,320
very comfort but lack of power so this

121
00:04:26,320 –> 00:04:31,520
is the very best of both worlds

122
00:04:28,320 –> 00:04:33,199
for mila so i like it very much

123
00:04:31,520 –> 00:04:35,040
i love it very much uh just now you were

124
00:04:33,199 –> 00:04:36,639
talking about the fuel consumption

125
00:04:35,040 –> 00:04:38,960
do you mind sharing what’s your fuel

126
00:04:36,639 –> 00:04:42,560
consumption for this a four liter

127
00:04:38,960 –> 00:04:47,680
v-twin turbo v8 2000 kilogram

128
00:04:42,560 –> 00:04:47,680
it’s about 16 litre per 100 km

129
00:04:48,639 –> 00:04:55,199
quickly here it’s about 6.25

130
00:04:51,919 –> 00:04:57,919
uh kilometers per liter ah yes

131
00:04:55,199 –> 00:04:58,240
that’s not too bad yeah that’s not too

132
00:04:57,919 –> 00:05:01,520
bad

133
00:04:58,240 –> 00:05:05,360
not too bad for it for the enjoyment

134
00:05:01,520 –> 00:05:08,880
yeah it’s still okay correct for

135
00:05:05,360 –> 00:05:10,479
such a big car what kind of mods do you

136
00:05:08,880 –> 00:05:13,600
have on this car

137
00:05:10,479 –> 00:05:14,080
uh basically it’s stock it’s only that

138
00:05:13,600 –> 00:05:17,360
it’s only

139
00:05:14,080 –> 00:05:19,280
empty one mtm stage one so

140
00:05:17,360 –> 00:05:22,800
other than that uh the rest are all

141
00:05:19,280 –> 00:05:22,800
stock like the double stock

142
00:05:22,960 –> 00:05:29,600
the the valve all these all stop

143
00:05:26,240 –> 00:05:32,800
us stage one okay and then you added a

144
00:05:29,600 –> 00:05:32,800
bit of like ambient lighting

145
00:05:34,690 –> 00:05:37,959
[Music]

146
00:05:52,560 –> 00:05:56,800
yeah i think even if like any of you

147
00:05:55,199 –> 00:05:58,639
watching right now

148
00:05:56,800 –> 00:06:00,240
if you want to get this car i think

149
00:05:58,639 –> 00:06:03,120
because i went on this you can

150
00:06:00,240 –> 00:06:04,160
take a look like the zero audi s8 for

151
00:06:03,120 –> 00:06:06,319

152
00:06:04,160 –> 00:06:07,600
so yeah even if you wanted one i’m not

153
00:06:06,319 –> 00:06:12,319
sure how you’re gonna get it

154
00:06:07,600 –> 00:06:14,400
so i may even renew siri after the

155
00:06:12,319 –> 00:06:15,840
car expires and have a total review

156
00:06:14,400 –> 00:06:17,600
because uh

157
00:06:15,840 –> 00:06:19,199
last two weeks i went to audi and look

158
00:06:17,600 –> 00:06:22,800
at the alternative okay

159
00:06:19,199 –> 00:06:27,199
q7 or a8 because i need to

160
00:06:22,800 –> 00:06:29,440
i need to plan for future discussion

161
00:06:27,199 –> 00:06:31,919
one and a half years later so the

162
00:06:29,440 –> 00:06:34,880
salesman told me that for aka 4.0

163
00:06:31,919 –> 00:06:36,479
you need to indent but i said what i

164
00:06:34,880 –> 00:06:37,520
said they said they are not bringing in

165
00:06:36,479 –> 00:06:39,360
any essay

166
00:06:37,520 –> 00:06:40,960
audi singapore okay they will not bring

167
00:06:39,360 –> 00:06:45,280
in any has they said

168
00:06:40,960 –> 00:06:45,280
so i think it will be more rare

169
00:06:46,319 –> 00:06:51,759
it’s wow the g-force yeah is

170
00:06:50,080 –> 00:06:53,680
and i’m not even like flooring it you

171
00:06:51,759 –> 00:06:56,639
know correct i i just stepped

172
00:06:53,680 –> 00:06:57,360
a little bit let me just yeah not even

173
00:06:56,639 –> 00:07:00,639
half maybe

174
00:06:57,360 –> 00:07:03,599
or half halfway at most and it just

175
00:07:00,639 –> 00:07:05,120
pulls in the character of the car yes

176
00:07:03,599 –> 00:07:07,280
but once you drive normally it’s just a

177
00:07:05,120 –> 00:07:09,280
normal clock yeah all right just normal

178
00:07:07,280 –> 00:07:10,400
when you need it you floor it then the

179
00:07:09,280 –> 00:07:13,199
power just came

180
00:07:10,400 –> 00:07:15,440
yeah it’s quite crazy okay okay what do

181
00:07:13,199 –> 00:07:18,479
you dislike about your car

182
00:07:15,440 –> 00:07:20,960
uh the park is okay

183
00:07:18,479 –> 00:07:22,240
the most annoying part is uh because

184
00:07:20,960 –> 00:07:25,280
this car is

185
00:07:22,240 –> 00:07:28,479
rare so the stockist don’t

186
00:07:25,280 –> 00:07:30,240
stop a lot of parks in singapore okay

187
00:07:28,479 –> 00:07:32,240
so a lot of parts when you want to

188
00:07:30,240 –> 00:07:35,599
replace they will say in that

189
00:07:32,240 –> 00:07:36,080
way intent wait okay so a bit annoying

190
00:07:35,599 –> 00:07:37,919
uh

191
00:07:36,080 –> 00:07:39,120
uh in terms of waiting for parts i’m

192
00:07:37,919 –> 00:07:42,000
waiting for parsley

193
00:07:39,120 –> 00:07:43,919
okay but you can always like buy it

194
00:07:42,000 –> 00:07:45,599
yourself and ship it here also right uh

195
00:07:43,919 –> 00:07:47,440
yeah that means that i have to wait up

196
00:07:45,599 –> 00:07:49,759
not like those normal you just drag in

197
00:07:47,440 –> 00:07:51,360
the workshop they call stockies

198
00:07:49,759 –> 00:07:52,639
these stockists don’t have their

199
00:07:51,360 –> 00:07:53,520

00:07:53,520 –> 00:07:57,759
abundant so this one the parts a bit a

202
00:07:56,479 –> 00:08:00,639
bit difficult to find

203
00:07:57,759 –> 00:08:00,960
