I think the styling has improved from the older Audis. It is quick about 5 sec 0-60 but what I feel is a much better or refined feel in transitions. It always seems to be in the right gear,...

It is more like the 5 series in size Which is fine for me. The back seats were almost unused in my 7 series.

Yes the screen pops up when you are using the equivalent of iDrive functions, Nav or the camera. There is also a button on the dash to deploy or retract.

The A8 looked beautiful but its a big expensive machine in its V8 form. You can get it with the 3.0T motor but its kind of big and heavy for that motor. The A6 is close to say the 5 series in size...
