2012 Audi A8L: We Should've Got the Night Vision
December 31, 2011
This isn't the dash of our Audi A8. We decided against this $2,300 option. This is the dash of a 2012 Audi A6 we tested back in July.
Now, I'm sure there are a lot of safety reasons to have night vision, but here in L.A. it's never dark enough for the system to work properly. It does, however, show you which vehicles have been driven recently and thus lets you know how long your boss has been in the office before you. Or, if you're the boss, how long your underlings have been there.
Not sure if it's worth the price, but it's pretty neat to play with beyond avoiding pedestrians and animals walking around at night.
