Default '03 vs '04

Guten Tag, my dear A8 lovers.
I would appreciate some help in choosing between '03 and '04 models.
Does it have anything with D2 - D3 platforms?
I have read that D3 platform was introduced in 2003 though.
Any differences other than the length? Reliability?
Thanks.

C'mon guys,
isn't this forum something bigger than the photos of 'myself and my hog I've just bought'?

Ehh...

D2 - 1994-2002
D3 - 2003-current

03 and 04 models are both D3, and are pretty much identical


That reminds me, I found the grossest thing the other day, I feel kinda dirty promoting this abomination in any way, but look here if you dare http://www.lltek.com/PRS_bin/PRS_99_..._grill_kit.htm

03 v 04 = 1 year lol with little difference apart from some addons and subtle differences, now you answer your own question (what is the difference)

I have a 2003 A8L and I love it. I think the mod kit are cool. You can make an older Audi look new. Are all 2003 Audi's D3?

You need to get a tricolor license plate for the front
