Thumbs up Audi A8L

Bought a car and it is not a Mercedes. It is a 2001 A8L. Man, I love this thing. It is big, great MPG, fast and very nice handling. I considered 740IL, S-class but I opted to go with and Audi. I had an A4 back in 98 for a short time but did not care too much about the smallish size. I am looking for a good Audi mechanic in So. Calif. if anyone know of one.
Thanks!

David

But then, I've been an Audi fan for some time.

Nah, you don't. The A8 is one of the hardest depreciating luxury cars sold. New owners take a huge hit. You're smart!

As a used buy, they are a terrific flagship car.

I think so, too. I also found out that they only made 3,500 A8Ls for two years. I found these cars very unique and elegant. I have soft spot for these cars and always wanted one. It is silver with black interior with the right 17" 5 spoke wheels. Great combo. I am sure I will enjoy it for a while.
