2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Delivered to the Body Shop

November 09, 2011


So what happens after your aluminum-bodied 2012 Audi A8 is damaged by freeway debris? It's time to call in the pros. And when you don't own the A8, Audi of America decides which body shop you visit.

DC Autocraft in Burbank received our A8 yesterday. This shop isn't the closest to our offices, but they are certified for aluminum work and they've earned the respect of Audi. That in itself holds some weight. When you find a trusted shop, you stick with them. I wonder what it will cost to repair. Any guesses?
