â€œ…All in all, it’s not the money look of Mercedes or BMW’s fancywork. Instead, Audi is carving out a niche that exudes elegance, of the slightly understated, less self-conscious sort.

As everyone turns to the BMW or Mercedes for the ego boost, there are those of us who donâ€™t need the â€œstatusâ€ cars. However, I do see the Audi A8 making itâ€™s way up there! Itâ€™s a status car without the status hype. I’ve never been one to be much of a show-off anyways.
