The 2008 Audi A5 comes with some high-tech, high-dollar options that range from amazing to annoying.

Automatic climate control, and a 10-speaker sound system with SD memory card slot are among the standard features. The tilting, telescoping steering wheel has no power assist, something Consumer Guide feels is a "glaring omission."

Those who are looking for a full array of the latest high-tech add-ons should find no reason to complain about the 2008 Audi A5.

MMI controls "audio, climate and (if equipped) navigation systems," Edmunds says, but finds it has a "steep learning curve." Cars.com calls it "easier to use than BMW's similar iDrive," but still finds it confusing.

The best options on the A5 are the most expensive ones. A Bang & Olufsen audio system has 14 speakers, and ForbesAutos says it "will blow you away." Navigation is available, as are Bluetooth, adaptive headlamps, keyless ignition, and rear parking sensors. A sunroof is offered, but Motor Trend recommends that shorter people pass on this, as it only tilts--it doesn't roll back like that of BMW vehicles.
