Competitor to the E92

The Audi A5/S5 looks great. Good competition for the E92.

I'll stay with my E92, thank you. BTW, I noticed that they offer 4 shades of gray/silver....can you imagine what the threads on the Audi forums will look like with " Which color do you think I should get" questions.

This really proves the old saying that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Even though A5 has tried to copy the E92 styling, there is nothing that Audi could do to make me like that ugly front grill. It's just an eye sore as far as I'm concerned. The E92 is by far the more attractive and sporty design IMO. Not to mention the fact that the E92 is more powerful and will most likely handle better than the A5 (although I obviously don't know this for sure). This will boil down to allegiance- Audi lovers will like this one, and BMW lovers will stick with the E92. I don't think that too many people will cross over, in either direction, because of this...

+1 ; Hey pal, were you living in the cave for the past 3 years? Those were concept photos that were out in 2003. Use and type in A5/S5

I just can't accept that grill. Audi really needs to change that. Reminds me of some hideous semi truck or something.

+1 That's the part I dislike the most about Audi, just don't like that huge grill and it's across the whole line.

I'll stick to BMW's
