    ... discuss.

    Note that I'm not trying to troll here, it's just I've seen the pics of the new A8 V12 and also spy pics for the new cars, and I have to say I think they're about to ruin the classic understated lines that Audi has become synonymous with.

    Examples:
    - the A4 update:

    - the new A8 v12:

    I hope they don't try to "update" the brand like BMW and screw it up in the process.

    I thought it was long known that this is the new corporate nose and that it will move across all models.

    The new A3 has it to some degree and I can easily see a mid-life facelift completing it to fit in with the new front end. The same on the A4.

    VW are doing the exact same thing on the MkV Golf... Dont think it looks too bad on the A8 tho to be honest.
