2009 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (5.2L 10cyl 6A)


I have upgraded form the A8L to the S8. Most of optional features are standard. Suspension firmer and tail shorter. Steering better calibrated. The car is clinical, technical and takes time to warm to it. S550 4-matic has superior steering but S550 has poor interior, poor iPod integration and weak navigation. AWD is superb even in A8. Superb driving in snow, ice. Excellent traction. Rear space is tighter than A8 and S550, but tail handles better.

Best Features

AWD, exterior and interior styling. Superb I-Pod integration, good nav and controls. Lambo engine was my biggest deciding factor. Suspension calibration on automatic is not too firm. B & O is a must in this car

Worst Features

steering calibration needs work. Still no way to switch off the radio. The hood needs a lower profile
