    No don't blame you if be a bit worried about doing that, I'm pretty sure they are different shape though but could be wrong.

    Why dont you park up close to a B8.5 and get a good photo of them side-by-side with your car so you can compare?

    8.5 is a bit of a misnomer as Audi hasnt officially named it. The 8.5 is a facelift version of the B8 with a number of minimal changes. The noticable difference from the outside is the narrower, more angular, front grille surround and the strip LED lights instead of many small LEDs. Internally, the tech is updated slightly (e.g. you cannot get DVD satnav any more, and the temperature display is now white at last!)
