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


Beautiful car that is so good that it's
faults stand out more than they
otherwise would. I love a big ride,
but this one is so large that
Parktronic should be standard... almost
impossible to park in tight quarters
without it (or without playing bumper
cars). DO NOT BUY WITHOUT IT, despite
its over-sensativity or your assumption
that you can park a car without a
computer (that's me!)

Best Features

Great looking inside and out without the "look at me" consumer appeal of BMW or MB. Ultralux, ultra-comfortable, especially with the Alcantara interior upgrade. Basically performs as you would expect from $75k.

Worst Features

As magazines said, suspension could be better over high speed bumps--you get annoying reverberation (18" wheels). Throttle too sensative starting from zero. Steering wheel should control user-stations, not the car-selected ones. Parktronic should not "alarm" unless close (1 foot).
