2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: The Other Home Office

March 02, 2012


It occured to me this morning that my opening comment is yesterday's post -- "It's too bad I can't sit in our A8 L all day and work" -- isn't correct. The A8's got mobile WiFi, comfortable seats, cupholders, heated rear seats, rear sunshades and a high-end sound system. Why not sit in it on my driveway and do work?

So I tried that. And yeah, it was fun for the novelty. But I was pretty limited by the A8's two bars of T-Mobile 3G connection speed. My home's WiFi wasn't much better outside. I drove around until I got five bars of T-Mobile, but at that point it seemed a little creepy to be parked in front of some stranger's house.
