    If what I read is true about improvements to 0-60 times. I would not buy a 2015 for any price at this point. Let them sit on lots at ADM using up floor plan money. Hold out for a 2016.

    Everything you read is false, the only difference is the color availability.

    I've read nothing about tweaking or improvements... Only the price increase and colors changed.

    I will try to find it again and post. There was a dude on this site that said they are modifying the shift patterns of the A8 to give a faster 0-60. I hope they do!

    I read that article also. RS said it was full of inaccuracies.

    I read they are changing the lights up front and the material the dash is made from. They are making color changes and a couple K increase in cost. Sepia standard and Nav Standard.

    Close, no light changes, Nav is standard, Laguna Leather seats are standard. Sepia (tan) color is optional. Don't know about interior but I doubt any changes.

    Yeah, it went from 100k to 60k miles on drive train. 5 year I think.

    I'm glad I got the 2015 and the 100k warranty.

    They are supposed to add Siri Eyes. It is basically voice commands to do things on the phone you should not be doing while driving. This from the press kit as well which you can download and read. I did also see that the A8 got a software upgrade that claims a 3.4 0-60 time versus 3.7. No matter I will let you know as others will as soon as they get their 2016's.

    IMO, changing the shift patterns not really going to help 0 to 60 time, the problem is traction and the lack thereof with street tires (not referring to DR which some run all the time on the street).

    I really hope the dash pad is improved. Hate all the plastic on the 2015 version.
