1999 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD
Used to be a BMW nut, but now those double-
kidney-grille vehicles just give me the creeps. The
A8 has erased any former affection for the Bavarian
creature. Audi is where it's at. Faster and more
comfortable than 740i, but much more subtle.
Power, power, power. Comfort, comfort, comfort.
Paint job is unbelievable. Aluminum frame. Red
backlit dash. Xenon headlights. Tiptronic
transmission. Gets the same gas mileage as my
anemic Acura 2.5TL -- unbelievable.
A tiny bit slow off the line, but makes up for it
within a couple of seconds. But then I'm a bit
spoiled, i drove a Jaguar XJR once and haven't been
the same since.
