hi all I understand the facelift model was launched in 1999. was this type more reliable than the previous. and how mechanically was it different than the pre 1999 model. for eg was the gearbox etc more reliable?  and did all s8 audis have Brembo brakes.?

Lots of cosmetic differences, but the gearbox was physically unchanged though "sport" mode was introduced post-FL.
Main change was 40v engine with about 20bhp more, bigger front brakes so most 17" wheels no longer fit.
