Powerful, But Expensive. — Overall better than my MBZ S600 or BMW 5 series. If it werent for expensive repair costs, I would keep this car forever.Aside from my Bentley Turbo R, it has the plushest leather interior, extremely quiet ride. Performs with super smooth acceleration, and excellent braking ability. Truly spacious and comfortable back seat. Excellent suspension and overall handling. I would definitely buy another, but would want a detailed repair history.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exceptionally powerful sedan, accelerates effortlessly in any situation. Handles remarkably well for a large sedan. Interior is the most comfortable I have experienced, except for a Bentley. Better than ans BMW or Mercedes.

Cons: Parts and repairs are extremely expensive, ie $1300 for a plastic fuel pump "assembly". Also poor fuel efficiency, 16 mpg combined.

I'm A Fan... — So far, I love the way the car handles. It glides over the road and is more responsive than anything I've previously owned. I love the understated elegance of its appearance, and even look forward to running the simplest of errands in it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Appearance and handling

Cons: missing extra cup holder, no central 'catchall' for items.

A Refined And Understated Dream. — A great Tank of a car, hence the Reg. She is called Rebeka after Tank Girl. Effortless speed and comfort. Pick a speed and its there, although in tiptronic it is also posible to pin you into your seat, the auto box is more refined. 4WD never puts a foot wrong meaning no wheel spins, just instant power. Even in the wet its motorway handling is superb. Huge vented discs all round with the fronts being 4 pot bembro means that stopping is also superb. A lightweight aluminium chasis also means that the car does not feel or handle like the huge thing it is. Front and rear parking sensors are esential. Petrol consuption isn't great, which is why thos one has LPG and an equivolencey of 36MG for fast driving. The age also nudges it into a nice tax band. So cheap to run, maintinance can be high through dealers, but a8parts mean second hand spares are easy to come by and can help keep repair costs down. DIY also helps.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Instant Power, Quatro drive. Awesome brakes. Refined luxury

Cons: Its *HUGE* and a bit too quiet which means points come far too easily !

Great Handling, Scrumptious Interior And Fast. — I must say that I have always owned American cars. Last April I purchased a used Audi A6 and fell in love with everything about the car. After reading several articles on the Audi S8, I traded in the A6 and never looked back. My God, what a sleek bad boy automobile this thing truly is. It is truly a driver's car, built by people who drive cars for a living. Fast, beautiful interior and rides like nothing I had ever driven before. The gentleman who previously owned it treated it like it was a newborn babe, so I lucked out on a cherry ride. The other thing is that there are not many of these cars out there. They have a subtle look about them and many folks have never seen one before. My personal preference in a color black. I don't know why, but I believe if it is a German Luxury sedan it looks best in a tuxedo. This is truly the Thurobred of German cars. Long sleek low and fast.

Owner for 0 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:16,000

Pros: Fast, Pure Luxury abounds.

Cons: Mileage sucks, but hell who cares what gas costs when you drive this beauty.
