This car is not for everyone. It’s a very high maintenance car. Not reliable . Not a everyday car. There are way better cars available. If your looking for comfort and reliability.

Hi I purchased a 2005 Audi A8 . For a 2005 this car is a very fine example of what luxury is about even by todays standards. Obviously Audi is ahead of its time! Also Quattro which is Audis version of an all-wheel drive system which works unbelievably well is another reason I bought this car Ive owned several Audis in the past and love how the Quattro works in the snow and for general traction anywhere in the wet etc. For the price theyre asking for a 2005 Audi a8 its crazy what you get I highly recommend this car if it has been serviced regularly in the past! Love love it!!!

This was my first Audi and I drove it everywhere. I really enjoyed the extra space in the rear seats (A8L). The cargo room was fantastic for a traveling family of four. I autocrossed this car and it was fun but a little lacking on power. The S8 delivers that extra 100hp punch this one lacked.

Handling Ranked 2007 Audi S8 better.
"Shorter wheelbase and stiffer anti sway bars. More power +100hp"
Value Ranked 2007 Audi S8 better.
"At a few years old each car depreciates about the same. The S8 will be more expensive but not too far off from the A8L."

Love It. Would Buy Another — A real driver's car. It is comfortable and smooth. You don't realize how quiet and smooth it is until you drive something else for awhile. Repairs can be expensive. There are a lot of sophisticated gadgets and technology on board, so taking it in is not for the feint of heart! All in all, I think it is a great car and I will get another.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great driving car.  Looks great, feels great

Cons: Can be expensive if it goes to the shop

Get One! — The 4.0 V8 diesel has great performance and you would be hard pushed to tell it was a diesel engine. Build quality amazing, interior great. Cost of ownership is not too bad, 32 MPG average, gives it 720 miles to a tank. Car is fun to drive, but chassis cant thrill. Still the best car i have ever owned.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent car, good performance, look and feel of the car.

Cons: n/a

Audi A8 — What can i say!! absolutly awesome performance, will keep with most sports cars other than very top of the range Ferraris, porches etc, 0-60 in 5.8 and four wheel drive but down side is fuel performance average 20 mpg which is seriously low!! build quality and interior is superb and eats the miles.

Pros: fast car

Cons: MPG's

Great car with all the executive package features I wanted. Has the luxury of the S-Class and 7 series without the flash if you want to be a bit more understated. Read More

Review By EldarAdam

The engine is one of the best, but standard options and image quality on the screen are outdated. I have a 2018 A8 4.0 and a 2016 750xDrive. Long story short, BMW is waaaaaaay better. To the point you... Read More
