2011 Audi A8 Pros and Cons at TrueDelta: I picked the Audi A8L for the tech and the long wheel base I have 3 growing boys. I love it. by wilkerson26
I've owned the segment of cars that would be classified as luxury for most of my adult life. My first was the BMW 5 series drove it for 10 years, next was the Infiniti M35S for it's sportiness and roomy back seats as well as the reliability aspect, consumer reports had listed it as a recommended buy.
Drove it for 6 years, the dash starting cracking while it was always stored in the garage washed and cleaned weekly and no harsh cleaners on the dash ever, so I went looking for the replacement car...BMW 7? Merc S class?, Audi A8 L. I was leaning toward the BMW in the begining; however buying my cars used the Mx was a real issue, I had always looked to the mx history of each car.That really guided my choice in which car I would make mine for the next 10 years. One it had to have a timeless body, a great engine and lots of tech...With reliability! After much study and searching the A8L won the buy! Im really impressed with it so far,... for the first week.
The Front facia looks luxurious however the body overall is very understated. But we all know the story of Clark Kent. This car is definitely one of those stories....it is capable of doing amazing things. I really cant list them all.
I've not had the car long enough to really have the cons as of yet. Right Now the love affair is going like all love affairs go!.. always on my mind and cant wait to have an excuse to take her out, looking forward to a long road trip together up to the Mts to enjoy the twist and turns...we'll see where this relationship goes. Right now all i see is A8L 4.2. The person I see buying this car is someone who like's performance as well as Luxury and lots of Tech, great gas mileage to boot. You had me at hello.
