From what I've read on several different Audi and/or A5 forums, the overwhelming majority of people prefer the pre-facelift models. Personally, I think Audi made a huge mistake in making the front of the A5/S5 look like every other car in their line-up.

I'd say if you have not seen the car in real life to do a comparison side by side, it's such a refresher. The pre-FL as it is being 4 years old is dated and boring to look at.
I've seen it in real life and I was even more disappointed than when I saw it in pictures. The front end of the facelift model is incredibly boring. Looks just like every other Audi now.... and my biggest disappointment is that the character lines that used to run down both sides of the hood and into the front bumper are now gone. That is my favorite design element of the A5, and it's gone on the facelift cars. What a pity!

You guys should keep your old parts and save them to sell as a package deal for people who want to turn their facelifted A5 into a pre-facelift A5. I know I'd do it if I had a facelift car.
+1 apart from the fact they have some interesting technical changes, FL Grill and lights not so good IMHO. But better than a Nissan Micra ;-0:thumbsup:

You pre FL lovers are funny....lol. I have done some asking of general people showing 2 pics...not saying which is new...and 90% all picked the FL version...seems the only people that prefer the pre-FL version are people that own one...a bit of bias? The FL S5 was what sold me on it...I see the pre-FL all the time around here and its boring...it also now looks like every other NON Audi using LED's. Kia, Chrysler, Ford, VW, Lexus and Mercedes you name it they all have the dotted LEDs under the lights...so the New FL is again unique to Audi...

Luxury lighting: Entry-level cars get big style with LED headlight accents - NWautos

To the OP looks great and if YOU like it better then its all that matters.

Hi Guys,
We hope that by posting some pictures of the A5/S5 facelift conversion done by us does not infringe the rules of the forum,if there is,hope the moderator let us know how do we go about it.
The facelift conversion is actually for countries in which the cars are exorbitantly priced due to extreme high tax and import duty which make the facelift conversion more sensible than sell and buy the new FL car.

I think it's only a problem if it brings Beakerz back to tell us how he loved the pre-FL so much he rushed out and bought 10 as soon as he saw the FL model. If that happens we will seek you out and you can expect violence. Just so you know! :) Maybe you should start your own thread if you have some more pictures to share.

Yes, we know Beakerz is a sentimental gentleman who prefer the pre-FL look. Everyone is entitle to their own taste,nothing's wrong about it. But for those who appreciate the FL look like we do and residing in Malaysia or Singapore,perhaps visiting us might be a good idea.:thumbsup:
