Quality by splarge on 05/18/2011. Trim: 2005 Audi A8 L, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Styling, quality understated image and overall exceptional fuel economy for the class and size of vehicle..oh and of course the toys. The Bose sound system ( all Audis have good standard systems) In the 80K miles ive done iveonly consumed , consumables..huge boot
Cons: err ...um its big...but then thats my fault for buying it! MMI system takes some getting used to , but RTFM and you will be OK
Overall review: Had to go out on a business trip with our boss recently who has a Bentley Continental Coupe on a '05 plate. We agreed to meet at the services and go up to see the client in one car. We went in my 4.0 TDI....at the end of the journey he asked me how much i paid for it,as all the switch gear in my cabin seemed to be the same as his and he seemed to be impressed....I told him .His response was "were did my extra 50K go then?" I took great delight in telling him that ive i waved a magic wand and took all the Volkswagen /Audi out of his Bentley he'd be walking home as he'd be left with a bodyshell, a set of handsome alloys n tyreswheels and some nicely hand stiched seats! havent got the sack yet!

Audi A8 L > BMW 750Li by Dan from New York on 08/04/2005. Trim: 2005 Audi A8 L, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: unlike any other cars in this class, this vehicle has its distinctive look that can be easily spotted even in a crowded parking lot of a mall. the reason i am saying this is because the new BMW 7-series does not have that "special" design compared to its other 3 vehicles, 3,5-series's. the handling is superb and the acceleration is just outstanding. it has that supercharged feeling once you put the pedal to the floor.
Cons: gas mileage could be better, but since this being a german vehicle, there is all the reasons in the world to be this heavy in weight. all german vehicles must be able to run on Autobahn at 110mph+, since they have no speed limit on highways, nice...
Overall review: with the styling of 2004 A4, performace like a sports sedan, and roominess of a concert hall...yeah, i strongly recommend this vehicle to everyone. i actually bought the 2006 BMW 750Li, but if i could, i'd gladly get this vehicle and save myself some 10 grands.
