2005 Audi A8 Sedan L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

We own Mercedes S600 and 600 SL and rate the Audi superior to both. We will buy the new a8l w12 instead of the s6oo better finish, design and comfort. The heating and air conditioning is unbelievable. We have a total of 30 cars including Rolls Royce, Porsche, Ferrari and GM SUV and pick up but the Audi is the favorite of all. We purchased to take the place of the S600 in the winter when the S600 must be parked with snow on the road. We now find that we will opt to take the Audi as our car of choice.


Best Features

Heat and air conditioning system, the lighting in the door and foot wells along with the MMI system, tire pressure and temp is great with the lower aspect ratio tires.


Worst Features

The phone system needs improvement, it works the same as the onStar ( only voice dialing) system that will not let you dial for use after you are conected. Also it should have a weather band on the radio system.

2005 Audi A8 Sedan L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is easily my favorite owned car- beautiful from every angle, performance to beat sports coupes, luxury that would stun a king. I just smile every time I look back at the car, which is often.


Best Features

Interior- it's the best in any car under $200,000. Even better than the Bentley Continental GT.


Worst Features

Pump the horsepower a little to compete with the new 750, and use the new grille on the V8.

Review

This 05 A8L is my 5th Audi. Last was an 02 allroad. I cannot believe how incredible this car is. Stunning ride quality, acceleration, comfort and stability. Here in Colorado there is NO better choice in a luxury vehicle. Awesome traction in snow and total command in every imaginable driving situation. I am most impressed with how quiet the car is. And I do really love the drivers seat. Incredible amount of adjustments enable you to dial in a perfect fit and comfort level. But the rear seat guests have the best environment- better seats than most luxury autos provide for the driver. Stunning exterior styling and interior finish. This is a great driver's car.


Best Features

Seating. Exterior Styling. Interior volume and finish Rear seating envirnoment. Ride quality. Comfort. Sense of luxury. Control and traction. Acceleration and top-end speed. Superb handling at any speed. The superb treatment from the dealership - like a 5 star hotel guest. Really.


Worst Features

OK. More power would be great. But I can wait for the upcoming S8. Seemless iPod integration would create a PERFECT vehicle.

Review

The car has the style and luxury, of any other car. The exterior makes it look cheaper than it really is. The interior is very nice much like a mercedes-benz or better.


Best Features

The stylish interior makes it a comfortable driver's car.


Worst Features

The exterior needs a touch of improvements.
