2008 Audi A4 (B8) - Your thoughts...

Audi will be moving wheels forward to get closer to 50/50 weight dist.

Quattro will have rear bias.

I think it's hot! What do you guys think?

I think it looks good.
I really like Audi. But I can't stand their dealerships. I went to 3 different Audi dealerships last year and all of the sales people there were very rude. I don't know about their service departments.

I love the current B7 A4, and was honestly going to go with that... the biggest shortcoming of the vehicle; the seats. The seats alone were the reason I ventured across the street to BMW's dealership.

The B8 A4 should be an amazing car, and if they fix the seat situation, that may be my next car... although, the way some people talk about BMW's. There's a very good chance that once I take delivery of my E90, I'll become a BMW driver for life

Love it. I am really more of an Audi guy than a BMW one, however the Audi's don't stack up dynamically at the moment, but the promise is that Audi have got the message and are working on that.

Ya, I'm not a big fan of Audi service depts either.

No official specs yet. These pictures are just photoshop renderings. But, everyone seems to be optimistic that the car will look close to this.

Now, only question is.... do I buy an E90 now, or wait for this?

It looks a little weird, I love the way the A4 looks now, but I didn't like the way it felt compared to the E90.

Looks pretty good, but I need to see the interior first. Tail reminds me of the 7 series a lot...

it looks good. the front grill is starting to grow on me. audi interior is nice but has been the same since the b5 with only minor upgrades. its def time to spruce that up. BMW interior has gone a LONG way and its just at this point unbeatable. would it be using the same 2.0T motor??
