    front is better
    side and rear still looks absolutely hideous.

    a8 = beauty
    7-series = beast

    The interior is AWFUL.

    No wonder A8 keeps beating the 7er in comparison tests and surveys...

    So is BMW letting a monkey design the rear of their cars now ?. The front looks great though :o.

    The front looks better, but it's still boring. The rear looks worse. They should have left that alone. BMW can afford to have the best designers, yet they haven't come out with a design that hasn't polarized their target market's opinions since Bangle started having an influence.

    My parents have owned an 91 5 series, and now they have a 98 5 series and 7 series. I was talkin to my dad about what he's gonna get next and I've got him seriously considering the A8L, because he absolutely hates the way the current 7 series looks.

    Agreed. However, I'm finding it quite funny how the tables have turned, when once people wouldn't even consider the previous generation A8 as a worthy competitor to the 7 series; now it has suddenly become a benchmark for the Bavarian Motor Wonder. :mamoru:

    Ok, enough of that. :o

    The A8 is a magnificent machine. Every time I go to the dealer for any kind of work I am always drawn to the W12 they have on display. Just sitting in it, feeling the quality of the interior, the comfort...good God I wish I could drive one. :o

    I absolutely love that car. If volvo wants that car to really compete with the E-Class and the 5'er, It should keep the current 2 motor, and eventually drop their new 311hp V8 plant into the car. Sure the price would rise just a bit, but it would put it right into the league of the 2 german family haulers. Not that the twin-turbo isnt doing well, but with all of the flagship sedans offering V8's now, maybe its time to step up. :hs:
