Default Big Pimped Out Luxury Cars. 750Li vs A8 L

I'll be getting a new car by the end of this year. Even though I'm nearly 99% sure my next vehicle will be a 2 seater, I have always wanted a BIG luxury car. I LOVE the way the BMW looks below with the 22's. However, I am much more of an Audi guy than I am a BMW guy. Anyone out there have any pix of a classily done A8 on coilovers and 22's?

Default Oh man did you drive the A8L at the ASOT event

I almost made a run for it when driving the car.

thre is no comparison IMHO. My parents have owned two 7 series bmw's. Albeit the bmw may be sportier, for cruising ability and sheer luxury.. a8L all the way.

with mocha antaclara interior.

Default You know what, there is no amount of hammering that can knock the ugly out of the new 7's

People keep telling me, "what do you care, you're on the inside.", or "it's a better driving car."

Ugly is ugly. The A8's aren't Elizabeth Hurley gorgeous, but they sure aren't Chelsea Clinton ugly like the 7's...

Default I honestly haven't driven either car... I'm real curious to see what an A8 would look like on 22's

Default Re: Big Pimped Out Luxury Cars. 750Li vs A8 L

I have a different decision dilemma. I am trying to decide between getting an A6 4.2 or stretching a bit more for an A8 SWB. Still mulling this over.

Default you are a man after my own style

7 series all the way. just be sure to spend some money on KW coilovers, a quality set of wheels like the HREs pictured which will cost a pretty penny... and ideally an aerokit from ACS or some other quality German tuner.

Default Whoa!! That first one is nasty. Almost looks like the old Acura Legends.

Default Re: Big Pimped Out Luxury Cars. 750Li vs A8 L

get the A8 LWB..or a6.

dont know bout audi, but I drove the 750i not Li, the rear seats space is little bit small (and u know I am small already). I assume a8 swb will be about the same.

Default Re: you are a man after my own style

to get those done (coil and HRE), would end up about $10-15k..plus the bodykits, and u can get Rsform's s4 stage 3.

Default 750Li vs A8 L

I dont have a chance to drive the a8 yet, but I have sit in both... 7 has better interior. The only thing made me considering the a8 last time is the quattro.

MR. Ricco traded his a8 to phaeton.

But the S8 with B&O option at the "audi street tomorrow" event is really cool.
