Default Audi S8 versus BMW 760li

I know this question might ruffle some feathers on this board (I already ruffled feathers on with this question on a BMW forum, so I might as well do it here as well), but I am hoping to get as much information as possible about these two vehicles.

Which of these two vehicles is better in the following categories?

1> Handling

2> Acceleration

3> Speed (I assume the V12 on the 760 would give it the edge here)

5> Reliability

6> Quality of ride (noise, etc.)

7> More technologiclly advanced

Any other information on differences between these two vehicles would be great as well.

Does anyone know if therre is redesign in the near future for the S8? I read somewhere that a V12 diesel will be available for the A8 in the near future. What about for the S8?

The S8's technology and interior features are far more easier to use and more intuitive. The S8 is also awd thanks to Audi's pattented Quattro which mechanically distributes power and doesn't rely on just computers like the other brands. Plus the S8 produces 450hp from a Lamborghini derived V10 not from a 438 hp V12 like in the BMW. Audi's now very well known for their class leading reliability and build quality. Plus their interiors are unmatched. The S8 is also built on an aluminum space frame for rigidity and it's weight saving.

The S8 is also $30-40k less exspensive and I think that an A8L W12 is more the car to compare to the 760il. They are priced the same but I would still go with the Audi.
I have 2 S8's in stock I stare at every morning. One is brilliant black and the other is a grey/black. Feel free to contact me for a product demonstration and possible test drive.
