Powerful, Fun To Drive, Sporty, Daily Driver For A Big Sedan! — Live in winter climate. So love the Audi Quattro system! With good winter tires, power, handling for a big sedan, heated seats, heated door locks, Dual Climate control, Electronic Stability Control, Brembo Brakes, etc. makes this a great winter driver. Only miss on this vintage is lack of adjustable suspension. With the S being 1" lower than A8's, i find the clearance inadequate when in about 4" of snow. Solar power sunroof is cool in the summer for taking the excess heat out when parked in the sun. After 280,000miles!!, car still runs and drives like new! 4.2L V-8, 360HP + with Tune, doesn't smoke on startup and still has awesome power. Only signs of wear are the drivers inside door handle scratches from rings!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great daily driver, fun to drive, lots of power, transmission is smooth and always in power range not hunting or downshifting to accelerate a little.  Ride is firm but a happy medium being an S and lowered 1" from A8's, not too harsh, but not too soft either so handling for a big car is adequate.

Cons: Exterior is starting to date but matter of preferrence.   Cupholders suck!!  Common on Audi, i know it's an S, but i can't drive and have a coffee in a good cup holder!  Front Passenger, doesnt even have a cup holder!  Rears, are only good if your a chauffered around slowly on a perfectly smooth road!

S8 Grrrrr — This is one awesome car, watch the movie Ronin you will know why! It is absolute for comfort and speed without attracting too much negative attention. Can't tell from the outside whats hiding under the bonnet of this beast! Rocknrolla

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: crazy fun in comfort

Cons: expensive maintenance
