Not much to see here just new grille headlights/rear lights but I think it does make a difference. I think the S5/RS5 look less bulky at the front with these changes. They look more sleek.

I need to see more angles. Something isn't sitting right with me. It doesn't look nearly as mean as it should.

Already? Didn't this car just come out last year?

Front looks better, rear looks worse. Lights still look like they gave a crayon to a kid, just this time with a right angle.

that's strange, I feel opposite I believe the rear looks better but the front looks worse, I liked how the old headlights were as stated above, menacing.

Interior is something BMW should be looking at to improve theirs,... cuz this one is awesome, love the seats.

This is a refresh across the entire A5/S5/RS5 line, which has been out since 2008.

Starting to look like an American muscle car. Someone in the VW/Audi family is trying to 'masulanize' their cars.

Was about to say this looks like it has a little bit of Camaro, Challenger, and GTO. I like it but it's almost too bland for me. There's nothing about it that jumps out and says "I'm a badass."

Am I the only one who thinks that the current crop of Audis, particularly the silly headlight stuff that they are doing, are not going to age well?

I don't get how they can pair such a pedestrian looking exterior with a bordering on exotic interior. The car does look sleeker but at the same time seems to be evolving into more of a masculine, muscle-car appearance.
