Having a closer look at the show cars at Detroit I noticed a few changes.

1. 'SUPERCHARGED' logo instead of 'V6T' on front quarter of A6. I think this looks better, will be interesting to see if it rolls out on future S5's



2. One piece grille on A6. I think this is a first on a non-RS model. I'm a big fan of this style rolling out on all Audi's. Not a big fan of another model getting DRL's though!





3. New R8 V10 5.2FSI has a few interesting design details.
* New grill - cross hatch style, not hex mesh like RS models. I know this isn't an RS but why does it have RS exhaust tips?


* New Wheels - not a big fan of these


I wish they used the wheels from the V12 TDI concept


* New aggressive rear incorporating RS-style oval exhaust tips, more black panels and re-styled diffuser/valence

Yeah, I definitely like the lack of a license plate filler panel.

I hope the sline model does not have the chrome strip down the side.

I guess I'm a loner here, I don't like the A6 grill. I think the divider looks better, but that's just MHO.

Where does the front plate go if it is a law to have it? It looks good as is but a front plate will look like an "add on"

I'm with Ranger on this, I don't like that A6 grille, it looks like a gapeing mouth..looks better on RS models IMO ;)

Nope, not alone on that one. I think the one-piece grille sort of works with European plates, but with US plates it just looks really really bad because it doesn't fill out the space properly.

I like the model to the right of the R8 in Joe's 7th picture down. Not sure what type it is, but it's nice.

Do you guys like the look of RS5 mule?
I like the look of a grill with no license plate thingy on the RS5 because it has honeycomb grill, but not on an A series where there's lines just going across all the way down.

:D lol...what kind of women you been hanging around with Bandar ??? :eek:
obviously one's with gaping vagina's blade! catch on will ya :D
