That spoiler is awful. Awful. What do they want to stick a spoiler on a beautiful car like this for?

That is the most dismal thing I've seen in ages.:(

The ribbed rear diffuser is even worse than the spoiler. And if you put them together, like the rear-end picture on Pg 24, it's atrocious. Looks like they wanted to turn it into a Mustang. And no, that's not a good thing.

Yeah, I agree with you guys about the rear diffuser and spoiler! But the rims are pretty sweet... If I ever get my car, I think that the 19" 5 - arm design rims that are on the blue and Grey A5 would look nice for winters!

Oh... that rear diffuser is all metal, maybe they offer this for a little added protection. (still ugly though)

How in the world were the designers of that rear spoiler able to slip that past Walter de'Silva? I can't imagine that he would have given it two thumbs up. :confused:

I was also told that they can now get the park distance control for the rear of the car, for about 280 euros plus installment. This would be an option for those without the tech package.

The designer doesn't approve add-on pieces. This heat got you all screwy or what????

I know this, silly! :) I was just trying to make a point, given that the spoiler is a part sold by Audi.

If Walter was given a say-so in the matter, I'm guessing he probably would have said something along the lines of: "NO WAY! You absolutely will NOT put that ugly contraption on my beautifully designed car! Are you out of your mind?"

Totally agree. My first reaction was OH MY GAWD!!! The real accessories are no biggie, but the spoiler and diffuser are terrible. I have have heard of "putting gold trim on a Pinto"...but putting a Pinto on gold trim?!? :rolleyes:

What are Audi thinking. IMO you would have to be totally insane to add the ugly spoiler to such a fabulously thought out car.

Wow!!! I was more interested with the rims, mats, navigation disc's, and other nifty bits. Not the already known ugly spoiler and diffuser. What do you guys think about the first set of 19" rim, the 5 spoke ones?

The ones on page 5? They are ok (IMHO), but not my style.

Can any German speakers translate the bit about the Audi Music INterface?
Using Google's translate tool, here's what it says (missing a few translated words):

"To connect iPod Generation 4 (iPod, iPod Mini, iPod nano, iPod photo, iPod video) and other portable Medienplayern4. Operation from the MMI accommodation with System.5 Lademöglichkeit4 in the glove compartment."

The footnotes translate to the following:
1 Where are digitalized.
2 About the exact deployment date please contact your Audi partners.
3 Details and details, contact your Audi partners.
4 To connect the portable media player will be additional adapter cables are required, further information, contact your Audi partners.
5 Wenn the function of the media player supports.

Ford Mustang wanna be spoiler

Looks like they wanted to turn it into a Mustang. And no, that's not a good thing.
So here's a good shot of the now infamous "Ford Mustang wanna be" spoiler. I still don't get it. WHY? :confused:
