Pros

All around fantastic car!  Solid, comfortable, "stealthy" on the highway, great on long road trips

Cons

Heavy car (5300 lbs), but with a V8 you can still get around 23mpg on the highway; in the city is a different story...

A True Car For Drivers (a Bentley In Disguise!) — For the price of a BMW 3 series, you can get get the "cousin" of the Audi A8/Bentley Continental Flying Spur (same dimensions/components); the build quality is fantastic, everything is top notch: DSP 12-channel sound system, 18-way driver/16-way passenger seats (all 4 seats are heated/cooled/massaging/ lumbar adjustable), 4-zone AC with motorized vent covers, dual-pane windows, glass moonroof with motorized sun shade, motorized rear sunshade, rear side privacy shades, 4-setting air suspension, front/rear parking sensors, motorized trunk lid, 4-way motorized adjustable & heated steering wheel - the list goes on and on!

Simply The Best — This may be the finest quality automobile i have owned, including Mercedes, BMW, Rolls, etc. Fit, finish and assembly are impeccable. At 80 mph it seems as quite as idling in the driveway. After 80,0000 miles i feel the same way as the day i bought it. The car has no squeaks, rattles or "phantom" noises. Its not for the frugal though, the spark plugs are $16.00 each and two hours labor to install them, wiper blades $25 each. They are a steal at $25K now.

Beats An A8, Need I Say More? — This car just leaves me speechless, thank god I'm typing. It's still hard to believe that this is a Volkswagen. They've done it again, created another classic in my heart.

Great Auto By pragmatic

This is really a Bentley (which VW owns, also Audi). It is the same as a Bentley Sport or an Audi A8. Only varies by trim. The paint job, alone is incredible. Mine is Premium Black, which looks 2 ft. ... Read More

Great Car, But Not For Mostly Local Driving. Need An "in-town" Car By pragmatic

Pure, unadulterated luxury. Like flying First Class rather than Coach. This is essentially the same car as, except for trim, an AUDI A8 or a BENTLEY SUPER SPUR.( both companies are owned by VW). Use... Read More

Hard To Find, But Rewarding When You Do. By xxicdboy

Hard to properly describe this car. Many think it is an Audi A8, but it is much more than that. Has some incredible features like auto door close, vanity screens and an excellent Navigation system... Read More
