I just ordered a 2008 audi S8 today to replace my 07 750li. Anyone have any input on this car. I just felt it had more to offer than the 7 series which has been simply amazing for last year or so.Now the wait of 90-120 days. Te big one will come in June a 2009 M5.

congrats! I LOVE the S8! I couldnt decide between the M5 and the S8. obviously I chose the bimmer. The S8 a great comfortable car with tons of power. I'm 27 so I chose the M5 as it is a bit more raw and sporty. However there are those times where I wish I had the comfort of the S8. The deal breaker for me on the S8 were the residual values. Those cars plummet in value.

none, the less, you're going to love it!

Thanks guys i am 27 too. I ordered it in Daytona grey. It looks majestic besides the 7 series is too played out here in Los Angeles. It's like toyota camry's here, but the M5 is not too far away.

I think the first 09's will hit US in September...thats what dealer told me. But you can order them anytime... Congrats on the S8 its an amazing car. Why did you not go for the S6?

I drove the S6 the ride was very very hard and besides i don't sleep with the enemy(since i am a M5 fan) The S6 was quick off the line and it has been raining here in LA there was no loss of traction even though i gave the pedal a massive push. besides since i am waiting for the 09 M5 that ruled the s6 out. The dealer was ready to really deal on that s6.

I testdrove the S6 and S8 and amazing cars! Loads of power and comfort. One of my friends own one and he loves it. He did not have any problems with it, although he drove more than 20k kms already...

Congrats on the new car and post pics as you pick it up!!!

s8

I just sold my s8 after 7,000 miles. Loved the car no problems I just wanted to try something new so I got the s63. I dont understand why people always say the resale value on the s8 is so bad. I paid 106k for my car new and just sold it in the high 80's after 14 months and 7,000 miles. That is pretty good resale value in my mind especially comapred to m5 resale prices.
