    Sayin Hi from Lake Tahoe - just got a w8!

    Hi everyone, nice to meet you, my name is Peter. I am typically an audi guy but have been searching for a W8 for years! Yes I knew what I was getting myself into. Finally found a single owner with a good exterior (8), interior(6) and price (1K). It is also a 6MT W8 w/194K engine and clutch replaced at 30K, owner informed they were all freeway miles and was open about the other issues mentioned below

    So being one of 329 in this configuration and I plan to keep it for many years!

    AC is broken (G65 and F129) according to vcds some broken flaps n such also..
    Cam Code P0025 "Drivers Exhaust solenoid" - shock treatment did not work, all other 3 actuated fine.
    Vehicle Speed Sensor - replaced and fixed
    Front left wheel speed sensor "I have the EPS/ABS dash lights intermitally"


    I have NO IDEA where to buy the new solenoid. I am prepared to drop the subframe and fix as it appears not too bad of a job but I cant even find the PN for it, I see it is removable with two torx screws but this is where I am at a loss.

    Also, I dont know where the G65 pressure switch is located. I have a newswitch ready to go in. Searched the internet everywhere, not too much info on this car...

    Side that the car is beautiful and a joy to drive. Need to figure out the P0025 before I put any more miles on it
