Smile 2005 A8L - Purchase Decision

Hello Folks,

I need your advice and experience in purchasing this vehicle. Currently I own a BMW 530i(Manual), looking for a bigger car, so A8 L was my first preference.
This AUdi A8L is a 2005 model, with approx 55 K miles on it.I guess it has own owner and it is being offered at 21K.

Is this a fair deal? After reading few reviews I found 2006 has timing chain and many more updates. What all expenses can I expect or things to look outon this 2005 model. Please share your thoughts on maintenance and reliability.

TBH, I'd rather have one a year or more older with higher mileage at the same price. Many of the niggles were sorted MY2006 on (so very ~November 2005 production date on.)
