    Hi everyone,
    Looking at purchasing an Audi A8 which is an ex demonstrator. Trying to go ahead tomorrow as the contribution offered expires at the end of the month. I would appreciate any advice/feedback from existing owners. It will be used as a daily drive for 450 miles per week mostly motorway but occasionally through central London.
    Would it be a good daily driver? Should I look for something smaller as it might be difficult to navigate on heavy traffic? I tested one for 24 hours and coming out of an A5 the ride is way more comfortable on the A8.
    Thanks in advance

    Bit late but I had one of these for around 3 weeks as a courtesy car. Very capable of eating up the miles (I had the petrol 340 bhp) . It was very comfortable as expected from an A8. The gadgets were good (touch screen, AVP, adaptive cruise, head up display etc). They all worked very well. I had it in dynamic most of the time and it wasn't harsh at all. The gearbox is good but coming from a S8 it I found driving it in 'D' a bit laggy so drove it in sport most of the time. Very nice car.

    My A3 was in for a recall the other week. This seemed to cause more faults so, Audi decided they wanted to keep the car for a week and a half. During this time I had a brand new A1 for 1 day, a Brand new Q2 s linefor 1 day. And the for some reason they decided to give 21 year old me an A8 for 6 days. I was given the diesel. And as you said very capable of eating up the miles. Going from my 09 a3 to that beast just blew my mind!
