Yes they've done a superb job.

I'm very pleased with it so far. It's powerful , extremely comfortable and feels very secure with the Quattro. I'd say its about 15% better than the F11 5 series.

What's poor is the Bluetooth sounds like a second generation system compared to the BMW, the interface doesn't seem as good as BMW either and I'm especially missing the buttons on the BMW that you can program to your desire.

It's averaging 33.5mpg which I'm a little disappointed with but I suppose as I've been giving it a lot of stick over the last week i would imagine that 35mpg will be the average but we will see.

The heated / air conditioned massaging comfort seats are superb, and that also goes for the safety features which is why I chose this vehicle.

I have an order in for the new RS6 but I'm seriously thinking of buying a used S8 but like above, the spec of the cars currently on sale seems very poor.

So hopefully it will be reliable as I've never been very successful with Audi ownership
