Default Would a 12' Audi A8L with high miles be an okay purchase?

I have a 2012 Audi A8L available near me with night vision, rear entertainment (w/ five seater) and adaptive cruise control that I am considering purchasing. The Audi has 115,000 miles though and had 4 previous owners, is that a huge red flag? Is there any way I can see the service history from Audi if any using the VIN?

The price the dealership offered is 17k, reasonable?

Four owners in 7 years would be a huge red flag for me.

I just bought a super clean 2011 LWB with 112k miles, 2 previous owners, clean Carfax and full service history for $15k last week. So far the only real issue has been a busted PCV valve which I noticed on the test drive and got an extra discount for. Next issues to tackle will be the auxiliary water pump (had like 17 faults according to VCDS) and have to check the suspension bushings, it kinda bounces back when coming to a full stop. Time will tell whether I made a huge mistake or not..

But yes, 4 previous owners would be a red flag for me.
