I admired this car from a distance and was intrigued by it's exterior lines. It has both a luxurious and sporty look. I stopped at a dealership and took a test drive and fell in love. This is the best of almost every driving aspect. Just to make sure I was convinced, the salesperson took me through every possible driving environment. He even allowed me to experience every weather condition available to assure me this car is the real deal. Although I was convinced early on, I delayed the actual purchase to make sure I tried all the competitors as I decided what equipment combination I preferred. I purchased my A8 in June, 2012, and have been thoroughly pleased. There are many nice full size luxury cars on the market but before you make a purchase, give yourself the pleasure of trying the A8.

A8 L is Outstanding

by from on December 28, 2012

This is a beautiful car with great power and performance. I looked at the BMW 7-series and the Mercedes S-class, and chose the Audi A8 for its styling, performance and better price.

This is the ultimate luxury vehicle

by from Los Angeles, CA on November 27, 2011

I've had the new S-Class 550 (slick interior, demanding presence but too oldie and had multiple issues), the new 7 series 750li (too flashy, although drove worlds better than the S) and finally went b...
I've had the new S-Class 550 (slick interior, demanding presence but too oldie and had multiple issues), the new 7 series 750li (too flashy, although drove worlds better than the S) and finally went back to Audi. This is the master of them all. Audi has finally come into its own over the past years and this car really exemplifies their progress. There is a reason why the A8 has beaten the competition in every review and received all of the awards it has, this car really kills them all.

The 2012 Audi A8 gives nothing away to its rivals in terms of performance, comfort, technological wizardry or build quality. As such, this driver-focused luxury sedan should be on the consideration list of anybody shopping this segment. Luxurious, handsome cabin; cutting-edge technology features; excellent driving dynamics; standard all-wheel drive.

Disappointing

by from Fort Worth on November 29, 2013

I had beamers before the A8. I sold it after 6 months and returned to BMW. The A8 was boring to drive. No room in the trunk. Lots of rattling noises, tires noise of all surfaces, uncomfortable seats despite all the possible settings and massage feature. Gearbox not really seamless. Positives: excellent stereo, good mileage. That's it.

Value For Money!

Audi 8 is not a value for money car so BMW 750 is most preferrable than audi A8 It lacks power has no performance and maneauverbility is zero Audi is not giving something new technology in their engines in their cars they are simply using volkswagen technology if the audi want to survive in the market than they must have to establish some new and their own technologies in their car. Audi A8 is waste of money to buy Audi A8 the customer will also not get a resale in the market its having a terrible resale and compare to BMW 7 series the resale is better than any other car in this segment so overall 7 series is 4.5 star car in caompare with all the cars which are coming in this segment.
