Agreed. And you should change most with all in that second sentence. Anyone who thinks a car with an extra 500lbs and AWD is more of a driver's car is crazy.

I'm just going to agree to disagree.

They're completely different drives and in completely different classes. Wheelbases, weight, drivetrains, almost everything besides the fact that they have four doors and go fast is different.

I prefer cars that are fun to drive. I hate heavy cars, and I myself would most definitely take an M5 over an S8 any day of the week. Shit, even the M5 is almost too heavy to be considered fun.

I agree, they are completely different. The S8 has straight line speed and thats it, other than that its a daily driver comfort car with everything you could ever want. If you want a fun to drive car the M5 should not even be on the list, go get a GT3.
Well, thank you for contradicting yourself and proving my point. Completely different = not really comparable. The thing is, not everyone has the money to buy a cruiser and a GT3; introduce the M5, RS6, E63, etc.

Those are "fun" passenger cars. I wouldn't consider the S8 "fun". Just fast.

A8's are pretty common around here as far as I can tell. Although I was following a white S8 on the highway for a little while yesterday, so nice

They depreciate like used underwear. All Audi's with the exception of RS, S and R models have a tendency of doing that.
