After my last Audi RS4 I said that I would never touch Audi again. But I have to admit the A8/S8 interior is very nice. Nicer than the 7th series imo.

some people like apple, some oranges. If were buying I would have gone mineral white exterior and either brown or saddle, or beige interior.

The current LS is actually amazing, our F01s borrowed a lot from the exterior design from it. The way the LS600hl carries itself around needs to be experienced, it is really special.

I bumped it up from the 20" to 19" and the results are spectacular: handling and cornering improved, as well as the overall comfort. Can't be happier.

I actually had to demonstrate ability to park the vehicle to get the drivers license. So that's OK, certainly can live without the feature.

Yes, the E38 is certainly one of the few truly beautiful cars on the road. Still looks more modern than most "modern cars". Can't say the same about the newer iterations of the 7th.
