    Dis-agree. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Saw the pics in this months Evo (also a review of the rs4 - 4 and half out of 5 iirc)

    imo too futuristic and bling as opposed to stylish and classy- No doubt it will feature in a 50cent video!! Id feel an idiot driving it.

    for that price range id get a used good spec 911 ie a Beautiful car and likely better drive. or the new Porsche Cayman S coming out etc


    Audi designs going downhill /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif No longer things of beauty.

    I thought it looked rubbish too but it did say in the article that the lights would change (they are the main reason it looks so wierd IMO). I actually think the shape is really good and we should wait to see the production version before passing judgement.

    I think it looks fantastic. The cabin looks like a cockpit and the dash looks great. Hopefully they will produce it, but i wont hold by breath.

    I think the shape is /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif but the cabin is /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif - each to his own opinion.

    /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif Sorry where we not allowed an opinion.

    Whats the saying...

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    One man's meat is another man's poison...

    <u> IMO </u> the two tone is vulgar, the front lights just look naff, the rear/ass is just in your face pimp me up, the interior is nothing short than a mess.

    god ...... that was my opinion, not a go at you NSD. I think the car looks spot on, the comment just a way of expressing how GOOD I think it looks.

    Take a chill pill

    Seen big pics of it in the Audi Mayfair showroom, damn fine looking car IMO (especially in comparisson with all the other concepts out there).

    Yep, I'd put my name on the waiting list, and re-motgage my house / wife / cat and anything else I can find to sell... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Only thing that worries me in the photographs if the fact the drivers seat looks like its got a hole in it... is this for that emergency situation... "I'm in a ten mile tail-back that's going no where, and really need a /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif" situation?
