L 4.0T Sport quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo 8A)
If you want a 4-door sedan that drives, handles and accelerates fantastically you need to buy an Audi A8L. I have had numerous Mercedes, BMW and Porsche vehicles and this car tops them all. It is a stealth vehicle that doesn't stand out with chrome, radical styling, 'look at me, I'm expensive' statements. It just quietly goes about its job of getting you where you want to go in comfort with all the power you can handle at your right foot. I have had it only 1000 miles that did include a 500 mile trip. Great seat comfort, quiet interior, all you could want for a long drive in heavy Southern California traffic. I am totally satisfied!
I now have over 11,000 miles on the odometer, having driven on to the Midwest during this summer. Overall we averaged 26.7 mpg with freeway driving in the 75-80 mph range. The vehicle was superb, I cannot say enough for the overall pleasure driving this vehicle provides. We had days of driving over 500 miles with little if any fatigue.
Prior to the Midwest trip we drove to the Grand Canyon and didn't enjoy the \gift' from the State of Arizona of a large pothole on I40. It bent a front wheel and I presumed it would have to be replaced. Wrong, our tire and wheel people had it straightened and even the O.E. Dunlop tire was not damaged. Obviously the O.E. wheels are of the same top quality as the overall vehicle!
