I like it for a sedan. The front grill is better integrated. The car is like 7 inches longer than a 3 w/shorter overhang with a coupe like hood and shorter overhangs. Top engine HP bumpbed up to 270 now.

I think this looks promising, the S-line will probably look really good with the right set of rims, right color combo. It will be interesting to se what Audi does for the new RS4 to match the new M3..perhaps the 576 pbh RS6 engine? (in plan for 2008) That would be mean in an A4...

I like it. The front end looks much better than the previous redesign. I thought the grill looked way too prominent before.

nothing beats this




(minus the kit)

who in their right mind would take a car this classy and sporty and turn it into something as cheap looking as the facelift and new body style?

nooo ^^^ i dont like any A4's except the B7 style. Audis only just now have started come up and look good in my opinion. I still really dont like audi interiors or their ugly steering wheels, but the S and RS lines have such nice seats. The european spec RS4 has a really nice steering wheel though, and different seats

I think interiorwise, Audi did the more sporty thing that BMW seemed to have gone away with. Thats the driver oriented center console. I miss that feeling that everything in the car should be me-centric. Now its passenger involving. Audi definitely knows how to design the interiors. The exterior is a nice evolution of the current design. I liked the B6 rear more than the B7 but this new one I can agree with right off the bat.

Take a look at the CS concept... looks like the driver centric interior is coming back to BMWs, which is a major plus.



looks a lot less clunky and old school than the audi too

true, but bmw concepts usually do a pretty good job of making their way into production

Z9 => 7 series, 6 series


XActivity => X3


etc...

sorry for getting OT
