55-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

I've covered 192,000 miles since buying the car new in October 2005. The car has been excellent throughout and since I have been using Aylesbury Audi rather than my local supplying dealer, the service has been excellent as well. The A8 is much more reliable than my old 7-series and more comfortable.

Fantastic car for modern British roads - comfortable, well equipped, 40+mpg - just put it in 'D' and hit the traffic clogged highway. Only grief is the sheer size when finding a parking space. I can't believe the new A8 is bigger - my friends already call mine the Land Yacht.

great large family car but drinks too much petrol and spare parts are astronomical. very luxurious interior and extremely comfortable ride. We have a long wheel base and the extra space at the back is amazing.

Lovely car. Great engine. Very quiet. Not as good a ride as a BMW. Thin paint /lacquer scratches easily. Feel of steering could be more direct.

The best car I ever owned. Fast, comfortable, luxurious; always a pleasure to drive. Now almost 5 years old, it still feels like brand new.
