The good:

- well proportioned.
- lines extending from hood and following down the front bumper
- door/side panel creases (although not executed perfectly)
- wheels
- rear bootlid and rear lights (again, not executed perfectly though)

Improvements:

- That huge swooping side crease reminds me of the IS-F because it's randomly placed. It should flow better vertically to mirror the edges of the door.
- Bootlid wasnt executed perfectly as I said. The idea is great especially with the sharp crease in the middle of the bootlid, but I think there's something still a little bland about it. Although it isnt as bad as the new Mazda 6's bland rear!

Overall, Im pleased an in terms of exterior design I would place it highly against it's competition.

Wow, those headlights/taillights really make that car look good!^

I'd go so far as to say that they match (and even surpass) those of Audi's.

I agree, this stacks up very very well against its competition.

I actually think the rear lights assembly looks similar to what Audi does. They have the hollow shapes like the rectangle shape featured here.
