2008 Audi A8
There are 5 user reviews for the L trim shown below
- Interior, electronics, ride, sophistication
- Hmmmm. I'm thinking . . . nope, nothing.
Needed a sedan for clients. The A8L had great and very roomy back seat. I do a lot of traveling on the highway and this car is a dream. Love the function of electronics. Small learning curve, but now that I know it, I'm very happy. Great value.

- Amazingly good car at everything, performance, room, luxury, traction.
- I could live without the electric closing trunk, seems cool, but slow.
I have a 2005 A8L, the car has taken me a little to get used to after stepping up from an A6 Quattro. It's a large car, about the same length as my wife's Town and Country Minivan in length. I've grown to really use the front and rear parktronic sensors when parking, etc. The visibility out the back is somewhat limited, but you get used to it. I did what most people wouldn't, in that I took off the Factory 19" wheels and went down to 17" wheels with all season tires. It made a tremendous difference in the ride and quiteness of the car (but doesn't look as good). I have very few negatives. It runs like a dream. With the new tires it is an incredible snow car. It comes standard with Quattro, locking differentials, ESP, traction control, adjutable ride height for increased clearance. I've run circles around 4wd vehicles on snowy roads and you can't get much safer than this one. It's very fast, quiet and smooth which is a tough combo for speeding tickets. I like my portable Garmin GPS better than the factory system, but is OK when you get used to it and the overall MMI system does a nice job of integrating all the features. I get about 25 mpg on the road and 16 around town which isn't too bad considering the size and power. I could live without the slow closing power trunk, but All in All it's an unbelivable car for its purpose....read morehide

- Many Pros
- No Cons
I have the sport package, the Enhanced interior, and Bang and Olfsen stereo (love it). I thought the ride would be harsh w/ the wheels and sport suspension, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was smooth, and quiet on most roads. It drives great and comes with many clever features. After spending in excess of $2,000,000.00 with Mercedes I switched to Jaguar. It's really a good car. When I wanted another Jag the large engine was not available in a longer sedan so I bought a BMW 750 LI and a 650I coupe for my wife. The 750 was not good and the dealer bought it back. I am so impressed with my Audi A8L that I have an S5 on order for my wife and will trade her BMW 650I with less than 5000 miles in on it. NO DOUBT THAT THE AUDI SURPASSES ANY OTHER VEHICLE ON THE ROAD! AUDI is where I am and where I will stay!!...read morehide

- Gourgous body and interior, stable performance, most luxurious car out there
- Price is at BMW level now, but its almost justifiable
I was looking at a 2007 model A8 but the dealer just happened to show me the 2008 edition. So we got it. I have the sport package, the Enhanced interior, and Bang and Olfsen stereo (love it). I thought the ride would be harsh w/ the wheels and sport suspension, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was smoothe, quiet and creamy on most roads. It drives like a much smaller car and comes with many clever features. I like it much more than my old S500 and I liked it better than an S550 i tested. Just for fun, I went over to Bentley and test drove the Arnage T and Flying Spur, amazingly, I like the Audi better than both of them! Now you can't beat the presence of a Bentley but the A8 gives a sinister look to people and definitely gets its own looks. I love it....read morehide

- Interior is best in class; perhaps best in world. Sport setting very quick.
I have really loved my '06 A8L; worth every bit of the $82,000 optioned-up price. The '08 is even better. Smooth power, wonderful room, rich environment, I wouldn't trade it for any other car.
