    Will be starting a 150 mile perday round trip commute soon.

    Have had 2 Audi A6 3.0tdi before (A6-C6 Le mans) had no issues with them and miss them.

    Am in two minds now between A6 (C7) or maybe an A8 (D4) both 3.0tdi.

    Each 75 mile journey will be 90% motorway M27/M3 probably outside lane steady 80mph.

    Will I see 40mpg from the A8?....take it they all have air suspension which will be a new thing to me...is it noticeably a nicer ride than traditional A6 springs?

    Same engine but is the A8 any likely to be more unreliable?

    I tend to buy 1 owner from new FSH only.

    Anything in particular on the A8 I should look out for?

    Thanks for any advise!

    I would go for a8, once you on motorway it goes up to 45mpg. Air suspension is very comfortable comparing to a6 s-line models. Never had issue with engine. 2013 is the year you want to start looking from.

    I agree with dantom85. I changed from a A6 3.0tdi 2012 s line to a A8 3.0tdi 2014 sports exec. A good 45mpg on long runs. A very comfortable ride and good acceleration for a big luxury car. Had no reliability issues in 3 years.
