Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I just want a different car to most other people. After all there are not many of these on the roads.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
This car has had the most compliments from other people. It is the only car I have owned (apart from an A6) where people have offered to buy it from me.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I have only covered 8000 miles in this, but they have been 8000 reliable, enjoyable & comfortable miles. This car averages 32 mpg so is reasonably economical. I would definately buy this car again

What are you likely to buy next?
Probably another Audi - A8 4.2 quattro, S8 etc. Very unlikely to be a Perudia Nippa

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
This car is best on the motorway & you won't have many trying to come past you. Surprisingly agile for a big car & perfectly happy around town.- auto. Comfort second to none.

What's it like to park?
A big car, so it won't be easy. I don't usually attempt parallel parking in this.

Only the battery which I blame the dealer for. He knew is was on its way out when he sold it. He did replace it though - free
