Although it is a great car in many facets, living in the midwest I should have gotten the Audi A8L w/all-wheel drive. The car is quite, smooth, very roomy and is a road warrior. Up keep is pricey but that should be expected, get an extended warranty or a certified one. This car will fishtail on you in the snow and rain that is why my next car will be an Audi A8 L. Also, a bit boxy compared to the same year, Lexus, Infiniti, Audi and Benz.
Nav, comfort seats, horsepower, smooth quiet ride, handling and spacious interior. All the safety features and cold weather package.
Cup holders, Sound system is great for listening to Kenny G but if you enjoy a little R&B or Hip/Hop get the Audi. The 740 can't handle the low end sounds of today's popular music. In-dash CD changer would have been nice and radio seek/scan is near impossible to use while driving.
