These are trademark application images. I know I'm in the minority but I really like the new facelift. I think the front end looks less bulky/heavy and more refined. One thing I hate though is those wheels Audi keep putting on every model! They need new wheels.

Another thing I notice is that the A5/S5/RS5s don't look all that in pics but on the road they look so much better. Seen a few RS5s around and they actually look good depending how you spec them.

I agree on both counts. Are they making this hardtop vert to compete with the e93, or keeping it soft top?

+1 The RS5 is already so heavy! That's why I prob would go for the M3 if it was my choice to make. However, I heard this will be upgraded to 475bhp. I wonder if that is true or just a rumour.

I kinda agree with this because the A5 lines are quite soft but if it was black I think it would look nice. I think most cabrios look quite feminine. I would never own an E93. Plus to me the roof looks awkward with the joints etc

I just cant see the difference in those headlights anymore. Do they even bother making different ones or are they off the A6?

They need to figure out a style they want to use for the headlights and stick with it. There's no brand image in that company. I'm glad they got rid of the Christmas lights, though. The refresh certainly made it more appealing in my opinion.

I just don't get why there are no fender flares or other aggressive elements on the RS version.

It does have fender flares.

Pictures don't do this car justice. It doesn't quite capture the true presence of the design.

Wow, they managed to make the A5 look generic.
