Find one like Fez or pay really cheap for this car because air suspension don't give you sign of breaking while test driving the car, only when you take it home = $3-4k do it yourself.
Unless the people who check out the car for you take out every spark plug to check for carbon deposit inside the hole?
Read about these problems and add all the cost to fix (just in case) then add to the selling price of the car...
I love my car, tonight, took the family to the kid school event. When we went out, remotely from far away, in the dark, the car lighted up all door handles and mirror, it's beautiful and "thoughtful". Everyone was amazed how Audi thought of everything and they drive nice cars also, but not Audi A8L, of course and it's 7 year old - 2006.
Truly, I don't like the air suspension, it's overkill, more problems than benefit, it's bumpier than the D2, but the S class had air suspensions, then Audi must have them too, I guess.
My car has 85,900 miles already, and no problems yet, only the suspension squeaks when cold, the steering makes little noises when turning right from standing still.
All electronic stuff works flawlessly for now. Everything works.
I got mine from the original owner, he took care of the car well and he didn't abuse it.
Cheers and good luck,
