COMFORTABLE, safe, reliable (thus far!) roomy, untouched by Mr. Bangle, almost quiet,and a bigger trunk than the S, but not the dazzling interior or tech goodies of a A8 (we owned one--it saved me form a 55 mph moron). The 7 is more fun to drive than the A.The Ultimate .... you know.
exterior styling handling, personality, acceleration, stopping, the Bimmer stuff....
boy, the Audi guys do interiors well.the & suffers only by comparison.but it sure drives better!
