the same reason why RR, p-cars, audis don't have Angel eyes. It just doesn't look good on their rides.

Too Audi for me. We have the angel eyes already, Audi have their crappy LEDs because they can't have angel eyes.

There is a design rule - When you emphasize everything, you emphasize nothing - I think that applies here.

The quandary here is that BMW put LEDs in headlights first - those amber ones used as eyebrows on the 5 series, it is just that Audi took it to a whole new gaudy level.

Everything on the care is curved, why choose a straight rectangular strip of LEDs?

Definitely not feeling it. I think Hamann should leave those types of LEDs to the Audi's, plus that front bumper looks weak...makes the car "seem" more like a 335 . Like most you guys said...FAIL!

Agree and the location is too close to the center of the car - they should be centered below the openings. They are just too square (rectangular) and don't match the flow of the rest of the front.

When you ignore the led's, it's quite a clean bumper.
