    So here we are a couple of months into the new C8 being available.
    I travel the motorways almost every day and have never seen one, nor a new A7 either.
    Second hand values are super low on E-Bay and Auto Trader (There was an Avant on there with 45 miles for under £30k) so it has me wondering if people are rejecting the new model because of all the touch screen nonsense.
    Speaking personally I will be going to BMW/Volvo/Jag when I come to change in a year or two as I really don't like the interior of the new model, I couldn't be doing with wiping fingerprints off the screens every day.
    Anyone seen one on the road?

    Iíve seen a few but thought due to WLTP we are seeing less Audiís on the road (68 plates)

    I do also think the price is ridiculous on them and across some of the Audi range - hiked a fair bit. Then when you look at brokers the A6 had something like £7-£8k off from memory.

    The touch screens Iím not a fan of but letís be honest youíd get used to them pretty quickly and Iím sure easy to clean with microfibres cloths etc.

    Intrigued youíve seen used so cheap so Iím off to have a look and see if I can be tempted...however would prefer a BE when they get released

    Audi lost a lot from their market share (-16% less sales in 2018 if I remember well), because currently they have not too much configuration for sale. That's what the new emission tests did with them.

    IMHO, the C8 is almost a complete failure. No real invention, FOR ME (and no offense) ugly and useless interior, and a huge price tag for nothing upon the C7. It's so expensive, that it's almost a competitor for a new A8, which is a nightmare, as the new A8 has some new possibilities which the C7 hasen't got.

    IMHO, I will wait for this: Audi E-tron GT, because as you can see from the interior design plans, it seems to me, that Audi will drop very soon this VW/KIA/Renault interior design. Or at least, I hope they will drop this, because I hate this cheap looking solution.

    Well Iíve got a C8 avant and love it. Quite a change from the C7 Iíve replaced.

    I find it smoother and really love the new tech.

    You are right there are some great deals available at the moment as Audi try and get some on the road. I wasnít intending to change, but the deal made it difficult not to.

    Mine is a 40 S-line in white.

    What sort of deal in terms of discount did you get if you don't mind people asking? Useful as a ball park comparison

    Thanks, am in two different minds about what to do as my BiTdi (saloon) can be swapped from Jan\Feb onwards...

    Test drove an A7 with 340ps but it was a bit bland and I just think Audi is taking the mick now with the prices. Mine listed at 53k with Tech pack etc and now you are looking at the lower engine for a similar price which from memory was around 5-6k less

    Also looked at the Stelvio but the garage was advertising deals that it couldn't do ...

    £28850 is the cheapest saloon C8 on E Bay at present, I really think that are a sales disaster for Audi.

    I had a sit in one, when i was at audi for sevicing, did’nt drive it, it was a “40” not sure of trim level, really did’nt grab my attention/enthusiasm, salesman did’nt seem surprised by my reaction. But i’m not in the market for a change of car so maybe not a fair assessment. I want my cars to last and be reliable and not be forever needing attention, my old C5 did this superbly, already have reservations about the C7 thats replaced it, but only had it 6 months so it has time to redeem itself.
