Value

3 out of 5

Good value second hand but be prepared for expensive Audi servicing and parts.

Costs

3 out of 5

Best fuel consumption 34mpg on Motorways, worst 21mpg in town. Audi servicing expensive, think carefully about purchasing a warranty if one does not come with the car..

Driving

Very relaxed, superb on motorways. Tiptronic gearbox great and really brings the car to life.

Performance

3 out of 5

Great cruiser and deceptively quick for such a large car. Probably needs the larger V8's to be at its best.

Reliability

4 out of 5

One problem with engine and gearbox ECU due to water damage. Fixed under warranty - car was with Audi for over a week and would have cost over £2k to fix.
