2001 Audi S8 4.2 V8 from UK and Ireland
Very high quality
Electric mirror switch needed repair.
This model I purchased was a 51 plate with full Audi service history, 2 owners and in very good condition, as you would expect.
This is a very good car. You really get a feeling of quality and good design every time you get in it.
It is of course very fast with terrific handling. Does not feel big or heavy, despite its huge size. The seats are amazing, very adjustable, very comfortable. This interior is extremely well sound proofed, and double glazed. Bose sound system is fantastic quality.
Pretty bland looking exterior in typical Audi of that age. Again though, very well designed and constructed. Real good feeling of solid quality that you just don't get with most other cars.
This car eats up long journeys, they are terrific second hand value, and very practical. They have huge levels of comfort and toys. The red cabin lit up at night looks superb.
I would definitely recommend this car and would consider buying another without doubt.
The big downside of course is cost. Expensive servicing compared to most cars and in the 20 mpg economy. That said, it is 360 bhp quattro so what do you expect.
The best car I have ever owned without doubt, and puts the likes of Mercedes and most others to shame. Different class altogether.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
