The Best of 2005 luxury car
By hazar on


2005 Audi A8 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


I traded in my big failure 07 BMW X5 with this beauty : and I am very pleased with this move. . It was nightmare to own a very expensive SUV like the 07 X5 ( top of the line ) which give us only troubles... the driving of this car is nothing close to any of BMW & MB .. I drove the S class, C63 -AMG , as well as the BMW , but never tried the Audi which I realize the mistake I did .. This car is a luxury feeling , sporty feeling , fun feeling.. great interior , high quality material , smooth engine.. This is the one to have in your Garage for all season ... you should know that you will not be able to drive MB in snow... It was a big failure m at least to me...

Favorite Features

MMI , Sound System , Riding quality , speed and the power , high quality material in and out ..

Suggested Improvements

I missed some gadget like the Bluetooth , IPod connection , and the Aux : cost 1300$ to install good after market one...

Hazar61, I am also looking into purchasing that same car. Out of curiosity and not to get too personal, how much on average would you say you spent on an oil change? Also, do you fill up with premium gasoline at the pumps? Also, where did you get the parts for the ipod, bluetooth and aux install? Thank you
