1) The rockers look tacked on
2) The front looks incredibly similar to the S-Line A4
3) The quad tips look really small

I don't know if I like this or the B7 more. This looks more modern but something about it feels lacking compared to the B7. I dunno.

The grille will change, no way they would leave the S series grill the same as the base A.

What is that third whole in the fron grille? Is it for the active cruis control or some sort of night vision?

My guess is it's a towhook opening.

The pic of the rear almost looks like a 1series if a 1series was 4door.

The new Audi sedans look far worse than the old ones as far as aggressiveness. The B6 and B7 were much better off due to the "squareness" I suppose. They had very strong lines and screamed badass. The new ones are way too flowing with all the surface curves. (See: rockers, hood, entire front and rear end tbh it's really the whole car) They look whimpy compared to the older ones.

i've got mixed feelings about it. i like how it looks longer and has a shorter height. i never liked how the current generation A4/S4/RS4s looked so tall.

im just not feeling the taillights. but i said the same thing about the taillights of the e90s, but i've grown to appreciate them.

As a previous B6 S4 owner I will reserve judgement b/c the S5 looks better in person than in magazines so I assume the new S4 will as well. I wonder if this is the model that gets the twin turbo 6 cylinder again vs. the old v8- I hope so! That would mean the new RS4 will be crazy powerful...
