Good Techology, terrible phone system

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


I immediately recognized the
technology advances over BMW and
Mercedes. Buyers need to beware of
Motorola V60 phone functionality. It
does not work with the onboard MMI
system and is basically a glorified
hands free kit (effectively USD 1,000)
for no added value. Voice activation is
approximate at best and does not work
when raining
Suprisingly, none of the professional
reviewers noticed that the phone system
is archaic and a real problem. The
Mercedes S class do have numbers that
upload to the onboard computer. Another
issue to be careful with is the choice
of wheel rims. I have the 19" with
sport tires which account for a very
bumpy ride.

Best Features

MMI computer, acceleration and look

Worst Features

Need to improve Phone integration with MMI
