Yea the car looks absolutely stunning, then IMO those wheels drag it down, not what I would expect on a 100 thousand dollar car, whatsoever. Still nice none the less, just if I was tossing that much money into a car, Id have nicer wheels then those. But its all preference.

I agree with what's being stated, everything about the car screams luxury and class, yet the wheels seem so cheap compared to the rest of the car. They don't look like a 100K+ set of wheels IMO.

I'm just imagining driving the A8 and pulling up to a new GTI and saying, hey my car is better then yours in every way, and then the snot nosed GTI driver says, except those wheelz. :lol:

I'd say if you can afford that car then you can afford to put the wheels of your choice on after! I'd rock those ones in the the winter, lol.

yeah the wheels were a sad note when I scanned the pics too...(some ones trophy wife is only gonna crub rash em anyway)...gorgeous car though!....I was in my buddies A8 in Ireland when they first came out in 2000ish...although they were always hot...they have really up'd the sexy factor with this one.

I agree with Daniel..seats are nice...very nice.

What's the deal with this new A7 that's coming out. Didn't feel like starting a new thread. What's its competition?

I got a message on FB today saying that pricing for the new A7 was starting at 60K and I've never even heard of it.

Not sure who they are going after with the A7 but it sure looks great(like EVERY Audi).

We have an A7 that is on the boat right now, hope to have it on the lot by next week. The A7 fills a good void that is left between the A6 and A8. Our most popular version of the A6 is between $62,000-$65,000 but then you look at an A8 which is $115,000...quite a jump.

You can build an A6 to be more expensive...but now we have a brand new car in the A7. The one coming in prices out at $77,000, which is a good fit between the two. Style wise I can only comment on pics, I wasn't the lucky one who travelled to see it but the salesman who went said it was beautiful. If I had to compare it to something, maybe a stretched out A5.

The car looks damn sexy and promises to supply us with something we haven't had before, which is exciting! I'd love it if the car sold as fast as the A8 did. Also with the new A6 coming out, and now the new A7 plus the newly redesigned A8 it gives us a hot lineup in the prestige car section.

Worth noting that they are working on an RS6 and RS7.

Very solid lineup. I'd be happy with an RS4 Avant.
