Does not have the night vision/infared system....does have heated and cooled front seats with massage function. There are 5 different types of massage you can choose from, and an intensity scale of 1-5 for each different type. Also has the intelligent cruise control system that will automatic slow the vehicle down according to the pace of traffic, and will bring vehicle to a complete stop. We tried it on the ring road today, unreal how the system works...set it at 120km/h and took it down an offramp where traffic was stopped, car came to a smooth controled stop.

And yes Matt, it was at Esoo today getting fuel

I was amazed how it worked, i obviously kept my foot above the peddle just in case. It also has a feature while on cruise that if you fall asleep while driving and drift into the next lane(s) the steering vibrates to alert you.

Here's a couple snaps, I'm brutal with a camera, and the camera is eqaully as shitty:

Very poor wheel choice. I was expecting something a little nicer in the wheel department. Those look like something you'd get on a base model Jetta or Golf.

They look nicer in person, but think for a minute about the person who is typically buying this car.They typically do not want want 20" BBS two peice wheels.

We have to build these in the best way possible to sell them, this is first choice

I agree and I wasn't thinking 2 pc BBS wheels either but I've seen some nice OEM wheels on less costly A4's. I think the wheel choice tones the car down too much imo and I'm not thinking 20inch blingdaddies either here lol

Agreed.

Perhaps the wheels from the previous gen S8 would of been the best choice, they were like 20" or something?

IMO this car is more of a status symbol then it is a pratical car. If I was dropping 100K on a car I'd want it to have the biggest and nicest rims possible so I could show people how awesome(jaded) I really am.
