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


After 1200 miles, still honeymooning, I
have had zero initial problems. I chose
the Audi after considering the 745,
Lexus LS 430, and believe it or not,
the X5 and Toureg. The 745 was closest
but after really working at it, I
remained confounded by the BMW iDrive
system. I am a technology geek and this
was over the edge. The MMI interface on
the Audi is much more intuitive, but
you do have to be a person willing to
live with it for a week of daily use
until you get the knack of it. The LS
430 was too stodgy looking, the X5
interior kludgy, and the Toureg was too
funny looking for my taste. So, the A8L
it was, and man am I happy about it.

Best Features

Two words - Sport Mode. The transmission in this car is incredible as is the growl of the engine. In sport mode, the car's acceleration is plentiful and spirited. Other than being a most comfortable car, it is very quiet and has an excellent sounding stereo no matter where you sit.

Worst Features

I would like the display located in the dash board to be customizable, especially in terms of the radio. I have stations that I like and don't want the car to list 10 other stations in between. Rain sensing wipers would be a good addition.
