2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: What Would You Add to the Options List?

July 12, 2012


As you can see our A8 has seat heaters for the rear seat passengers. Amenities like this used to qualify a car for ultra-luxury status, but not anymore.

It got me thinking, what does the A8 need in back to seem special to the average person these days?

Does it need extendable foot rests? (They're available for a substantial price)

Dimmable side glass? (This would be instead of its current power sunshades)

Direct TV? A completely translucent roof? What's left? What's left to be invented?
