2004 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


After owning BMW 7s for years, this car
is incredibly smooth, quiet, and
powerful. Handling/power is excellent
and comfort/interior appointments are
superb. Living in Florida, I won’t
test the four-wheel drive to any great
degree, but the adjustable height
suspension has come in handy with all
the flooding we’ve had (I used the lift
mode to raise the body to go through
some bad flood areas - A brand new
LS430 was not as fortunate). Audi has
clearly designed a winner and with
Audi's low production numbers, it
is also a car that has a high measure
of exclusivity on the road. I am soooo
happy I didn't buy a 745 or S500 while
waiting for this car!!!

Best Features

Interior comfort, handling, engine, suspension, MMI, 19" wheels, exclusivity, stereo, overall looks, LED interior lighting.

Worst Features

Rear seat headrests that retract when not in use - Big headrests and b- pillars make lane changes challenging; S version, paddle shifters, more HP, OnStar light is too @$*# bright. Otherwise, Simply Outstanding!! Great job Audi!!
