I'm sorry it took so long getting back to you.
I negotiated a price of $2750 on the S8, and around 3500 for the W12. It's mostly about what equipment you have on the car.
I have the B&O sound system, full leather interior, rear fridge(W12) on and on. And that's why mine was on the high side.
I got the wheels insured for 1850 each(car). Given the fact that the S8 wheel is about 1200 bucks, and the W12 "fan" wheel is about 1400 a piece, it's money well spent, especially up here in "pothole heaven"

Thanks for the information. I would guess the fully loaded 2008 A8L I'm getting ready to order would be around $2500. Reality check: my 2004 Sienna Van 7 yr/100K extended warranty was $950. Was your extended warranty through Audi but supplied by JM&A Group? How about the service policy at $599? I think the intervals it pays for are something like at 10K intervals starting at 1 year and going out through year 5. I have read several posts here on Edmunds about Audi engines going belly up due to sludging blamed on the 10K service intervals, so would likely change mine at 5K no matter what.

I would save your money on wheel insurance. I bought an A8L with 19" chrome wheels which were an extra $5k at purchase. After a year, one of the wheels cracked. The dealer was willing to sell me the rims (the fan wheel, chromed), four if I wanted, for $400 each, with no insurance. I bought two, so I have a spare if another ever gets damaged.

Same thing happened to me last year, when I purchased an 2006 A8L just as the '07s were coming out. They took $8,000 off the sticker as soon as I walked in the door, and then I negotiatied another $5,000 off the price. I think you really need to consider whether the upgrades in the '08s are worthing paying more for, becasue you won't get that deal on the new model year. In 2003 I bought a 2004 A6 4.2, and I did not get as good a deal. Part of there theory is that they are giving you back the first year's depreciation.

Any luck closing a deal. I am looking at an 2007 A8 as well and curious as to how much room dealers have on discounting the '07s
#60 of 83 Feedback on 2007 A8 Prices
Sep 28, 2007 (3:50 am)
I am seeing a couple of A8s (short wheelbase) from more than one dealer for $65K (after "dealer incentives"). Cars include premium package, 19" wheels and heated steering wheel. Sounds like a great deal given the MSRP is around $76K. Does anyone know if dealers have more room to discount the 2007s? Also, I am told that in order to get the dealer incentives, I have to buy before month end? True? False?

How do you like your S8? I just got my 2007 in May. Took 2 months to order as I like it. I had 2 problems which you should check out. 1. The transmission gasket leaked and they needed to get a newer thicker one with a new "high heat" sealent. Also a small fuel pump was leaking, no fluid on ground, but same fuel smell. You know that 5.2 V10 gets hot. Other than that no problem. It is my wife's car. Only 4 in the WAsh DC area. Our first Audi. here with the slush come Dec you need AWD if you have hi perf tires...
