We were going to my grandparents house on Anna Maria Island then we entered her neighborhood. Then i saw this beautiful A8L in a neighbors driveway. I was stunned. I knocked on the door and asked the guy if i could take some pictures. It so happens that he just had taken delivery the day before. I want this car sad.gif
the base price is $68,500.00 and His was in the range of $82,000.00.
He got the car from Champion Porsche/Audi.

The A8 is a great car; it just screams class. Not a line out of place, it's stunning to behold too...especially with the 19s. Very nice!

I fully agree. I saw it in person biggrin.gif and i was trying my hardest not to take more. i wish the conditions were better although it looks sexy when its wet. laugh.gif

Meh, they're just fiddling around with it now. When there's a button to change the reverse beep's pitch they've gone too far.
clarkma5
I don't think the Audi has that; that's the Merc S-class tard.gif
White RSX
Watch Top Gear again clark.
nismo
In that car you would probobly never know how to do everything in it. i would proboly never even push all the buttons! But WRSX you've gotta admit its a stunning looking automobile.

Not really doing much for me, its too much like every other sedan on the road, and judging by my mother's Taurus, that's not a good thing.

There's many big differences between this and your mom's Taurus, Xenocyde.

To name a few: 330 HP V8, quattro all-wheel drive, massaging front seats (well, they're optional, anyway), MMI, air suspension, leather and wood everywhere.

I mean, it's not my ideal car, but it's still f*cking nice.
White RSX
Well I know that clark, but its just the crowd it falls into, like the rich kid looking like a druggie.

its a big beautiful car, get it with a diesel and it'll do 40mpg with plenty of performance. thumbs_up.gif

Well, 40 mpg is only if you drive it like you're...well, like you're jeremy clarkson in that top gear segment.

Granted, that was the V8 diesel...the V6 diesel might get similar mileage in more realistic situations.

My girlfriend orginaly wanted the SL600, but Mercedes-Benz rejected her, and said that it was to much power for such a young lady. So, she settled for the SL500, the slower one, with uglier wheels. She wanted a black one, once again, Mercedes-Benz rejecter her and said there can be only one colour of each model in my city. So she took silver.


She told me this, I would have walked away if they treated me that way. I'd be like "fuck you then" and leave.


Edit: At the time I posted this, for some reason it fit into the thread and now, looking back, it doesn't. My brain is dying.

AND its got ALOT better styling than the round-eyed smiley-faced taurus. The taurus doesnt turn heads but we came over the small bridge to my grandparents hous and it hit me like a brick. I said " Holy shit is an A8" (or something to the line of that). And the main difference is that
This is how i look at ....In my opinion
Audi= German precision, built for speed and luxury
Ford= Mexican assembly, built for commuting and bland styling
høgh
It doesn't have the new Audi-front. Or is it only the W12 version who got that?
clarkma5
Yeah, only the W12 gets the new Audi nose (for now)

Actually her taurus isn't a round lighted one. Anyhow, just because it's an Audi doesn't make up for the fact that it's fucking boring.
