I like it better without the lower chin spoiler. The new A4 is hot, saw my first one about a week ago. Looking forward to the new RS4, if they do one that is. First they need to do the RS5.

That's how it used to be, apparently they're breaking that rule because they're going to do the RS5 and the TT-RS at the same time. At least that's the rumor.

All I want is the RS6 in the states.

Looking at this there is no doubt the A4 looks improve dramatically when they are lowered and fitted with big alloys.

Still not won over by the A4 shape compared to the out going model, but I will probably forgive it when the RS4 version arrives as all RS Audis look the business which is something no other manufacturer seems capable of matching.

The new A4 is a good looking car from all angles except for the rear. I'm not convinced on that yet. I actually really like the out going model a lot better. Those STaSIS rims are too much for the car I think.

I dont know if they dont think Americans will buy enough of them (they are damned expensive) or North American gasoline is such crap that the engine won't run properly without a de-tune....

the rear fenders on it look BAD-ASS though

I agree. Stasis usually is much better at builds than this.

Stasis makes some good products, I have their coils; and their Alcon brakes are monsters, but the wheels do look way too busy; and I still think there hasn't been an A4 body style that 20s look good on, still seem too big (of course there are individual exceptions).

i think 20's are a bit much on the audi a4 and the bmw 3. just too much wheel for both.

The new A4 looks good. Saw a few in person. But the stasis wheels look like crap. Way too much going on. A bad version of the classic mesh design.

Not to start any argument, but I think the E46 M3 still ranks at the top regarding this.

The car looks good, no doubt, but the design is just too calculated. It gets boring. There's no surprises. I'm sure the RS4 will fix this, or at least I hope so.

Wheels are okay but a bit busy. I like the RS6 wheels much better.
