One Of The Best Driving Vehicles You Can Experience. — I have own this car for a little over 1 year and have enjoyed it tremendously. So let's start with The Good: Handles great, Dynamic Drive, Plenty of Leg Room, and Looks Great. The Bad: Maintenance can be a beast if you have repairs but that's the case with and luxury car. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. You will get a great combination of looks, performance and space.

Transporter - Driver Comfort — Best car I have ever driven. Audi thought of everything. Like the sun roof that has a air foil that adjusts to your speed to reduce car noise. Doors auto shut if not completely closed. Headlights turn with the steering wheel to illuminate your view along with where you are looking to go...

every thing but the weight.

Cons

its a little hevy for a sports car

35

It Is A Well Made Car — its very sporty, very fast, very good braking,very good handling, very good acceleration,but could be a little lighter its a bitter hevy when in fast corners and could use more chrome and could be lower.

Repair and fuel costs.

Big Mama Cat — Repairs even routine maintenance are really pricey. Like $1,000 for front brake pads and rotors. Also, you run into Audi owners with horror stories about frequent costly repairs. Gas milage is around 18 miles per gallon, not bad for a V8. The car is great to drive. The 335 hp engine is surprisingly smooth, while the AWD makes the handling an extension of your thoughts almost. I tend to forget how big the car is.

Audi! — Very reliable, powerful, and smooth. the car handles very well, you are never disappointed when you get into the car and turn the ignition. the car is a bit expensive but oil prices are not a factor with this car, especially if you're living in Kuwait.

Amazing Car! — Beautiful. Step on the gas and this thing moves! Pop-up 3''-5'' display that controls virtually everything on the car. This is one of Audi's best cars.

2006 A8 Lwb — The car on my Dream Board that I always wanted. It is everything I thought it would be. The comfort is amazing and the ride smooth as anything I been in. The look is sporty, yet very classy and not many folks are hip to the A8 LWB. It is an '06 with just 9,500 miles on it and a warranty up to 100,000 so I have plenty of time to get my roll on. Wish the nav was a little more techy, but it does its job. Couldn't be any happier with the car!

Vader — Stealthy, smooth and fast. Drives like a much smaller car, lovely details, and underappreciated. I've lowered it (it has an air suspension) with a VAG-COM cable, tinted the windows with Huper Optik tint and its debadged. It now has an S8 front conversion and a quad exhaust. Some 20" HRE wheels and powdercoated calipers with crossdrilled rotors mean that I am finished for now.

"this Car Is So Choice. If You Have The Means, I Highly Recommend Picking One Up." — With its squat stance, muscular hood and 19" two-tone wheels, this flagship of the Audi line is a joy to behold...second only to driving it. The sumptious interior, with alcantara headliner, blonde wood, and cappucino leather hides an array of electronics all easily controlled by the steering wheel or Audi MMI system. With powerful and smooth acceleration, radar-controlled speed control, BOSE sound and 32-way comfort seats this is a car you never want to leave. Slip the air suspension into firm and the 7- speed autobox into sports and the A8 suddenly becomes an extraordinarily well-appointed S4...with the handling to match.
