1999 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


After three years of ownership I have no complaints.
When first purchased I decided to replace or rebuild all the systems (@123K) so as not to have any concerns for a few years.
Having little service history I continue to think this was a positive move in spite of the moneys spent.
Since these repairs were a few years back, I continue keeping the Audi looking good with interior repairs (headliner, tint, etc.)
My greatest problem was locating a clean example of an A8 (this took months) due to their limited numbers and dubious ownership. If you have never driven a A8 you need too. Best driving vehicle I've ever owned in fifty years, bar none, including a 66' 911S that was close to perfect until the A8.
For my limited investment, I am more than pleased with this very fine example of German craftsmanship.
