2002 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is BY FAR the best Audi I have
ever driven, and I've driven quite a
few. The ride, power, luxury ... just
awesome. Any doubt that anyone has
about this car is purely groundless.
Quattro = best 4-wheel drive system
ever. Cannot be beat. One and only
flaw: Doesn't exactly sip gas... but
not really hard on it either (a 1998
A6 is harder on gas) since it is made
of aluminum. Which is also nice,
since it improves stiffness and safety
without increasing weight (but
increasing price :). Still definately
worth it. 360 hp = awesome power.
Every possible luxury appointment has
been added. Just an all-around
awesome car.


Best Features

quattro quattro quattro.... what else ... Symphony II Sound system ... aluminum frame (light and stiff) 360 horses ... wow.


Worst Features

attempt to improve fuel economy ... but tough with a big car.

Review

Great road car. Steering feels a
little light but precise. Car feels
lighter than it is...Fast, quick to
turn-in, balanced in corners, amazing
brakes.

Dunlops supplied are a dissapointment.
One blew for no known reason and a
second develop blister. Remaining 2
have scalloped badly in under 10k
miles. Alignment checked OK.


Best Features

AWD, TIP, front seats to die for.


Worst Features

Could use a taller OD for better highway mileage.

Review

I HAVE HAD VIRTUALLY NO PROBLEMS WITH
MY S8. I DON'T LIKE THE NAVIGATIONAL
SYSTEM AND WOULDN'T PURCHASE IT
AGAIN! CUP HOLDERS ARE WEAK!
OTHERWISE NO COMPLAINTS.


Best Features

PERFORMANCE IS OUTSTANDING! GREAT LOOKING CAR BUT NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IT IS!


Worst Features

CUP HOLDERS POORLY DESIGNED AND NAVIGATIONAL SYSTEM (SHOULD USE A DVD INSTEAD OF CD'S)

Review

This S8 has incredibly smooth
acceleration from the 4.2 liter V8
that is normally aspirated. No turbo
or supercharger jerk. Handling/its
very responsive for its large size
with the Brembo brakes more than ample.
All in all, a great vehicle for open
road driving!


Best Features

Wonderful leather seats/ luxurious interior. Acoustical windows and insulation/very minimal exterior noise.Didn't even realize that a dumptruck was next to me until I looked over and saw it/coudln't hear it.


Worst Features

Audi keys need to be improved as they tend to come apart{the plastic cases I mean}
