Great car, Infuriating Controls
By Dave on


2008 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (5.2L 10cyl 6A)


Fantastic car. Great handling, styling and quality. The MMI controls will drive you insane. The simplest function becomes very complex. Turning on the heated seats, solar shade, etc. The navigation system - thought was broken. Numerious major addresses in major cities could not be found. Turns out for 2008 you don't enter the city, but the county of location. That is insane, Florida has like 50 counties. No idea, where one starts and stops.

Best Features

Engine, sound system, the B&O is fantastic. Handling, acceleration is impressive. Much better quality and driver experience than my MB 600 SL.

Worst Features

Navigation system needs a better disk, huge mistake. MMI still too complex. One should not need to read a phone book to operate a vehicle. Maybe, a new user start up, prompting each setting would be a good idea. Then done with it, or tweak once in use.
