to op,

Audi is lesser then BMW and Mercedes Benz. Audi can not compare with the other two German manufacturers.

S8 is a nice car, no doubt. It just is not as nice as an S63 or even a B7.

Do not get me started with the v12 models.

It depends on personal preference.

Audi is a very strong company, and can be equally as good as BMW and MB.
They have a great lineup of vehicles. And I would take the S8 over the S63! I don't like how the S class looks, and the interior isn't too impresive either, while the S8 is simply bad*ss, both inside and out.

point taken.

as you noted; personal preference is always key deciding factor.

I agree the s class is a little blah in the inside; performance picks up for that inconsistency.

s63 amg is a beautiful car, which IS rivaled by a S8; does not mean that rivalry is a heated one nor a close one.

s65 is one of the, if not thee, best sedan in the world.

me? i am a BMW guy; although BMW does not make anything to compete with the s65..... yet.

It really is all personal preference. Audi makes some nice looking automobiles and you get a little more for the money vs. BMW/MB with regard to options. They are number #3 I believe in the US of the three german high end companies. We love our Q7 and the new A6 and other face lifted models look sweet with those front LED's.
