If there are any A800 owners out there that still have an A700 that you want to sell, I'm interested in buying a nice condition A700 with options.

Please PM me if you have one and are interested in selling.

Thanks to everyone for the responses and feedback. I was able to find a great car on here (Thanks Jessele) so I'm covered for right now. I'm anxious to see how the A700 does compared to my A800. I run VTA and USGT so if there is enough performance difference and efficiency gain, I might have to snatch up another A700.

I'll post an update on the A700 thread once I get everything sorted out and tested.

Thanks again to everyone
