General Comments:

I purchased this car used as a second car. I purchased it because it fit me, it had the most bang for the buck, and I very much liked the power and handling of this vehicle.

I have owned other high-end cars in the past such as a Mecedes S-430 and E-55, a BMW 7, and a Lexus.

The Audi A8 feels lighter, faster, and seems to track a bit better when being driven very hard... more so than the Mercedes S Class or BMW 7 Series.

The Audi handles extremely well. I am very pleased with the peformance and handling of the car.

The car is very comfortable and it fits my 6'8" frame fairly well.

I miss the maps that the other German and Japanese navigation systems feature. However, the navigation system is very simple to use and works flawlessly.

I am very happy with this car and like the fact that it is low key. The lines are nice and the car has a nice stance. However, it is not flashy or obvious. Tastefully done styling.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
