    Audi fans can no longer talk shit about new BMW designs. This car is just as ugly if not uglier than anything BMW has produced recently. What is the world coming to?? I thought the new S4 was just fine. :ugh:

    Here is the link to some more pics. Couldn't get them to save right for some reason: Click here for more ugliness

    I also don't understand how the S4 is now in its third iteration in recent years and yet retains the same freakin wheels??!!

    I drive an Audi and love 'em, but even I hate the new grill. I mean, bmw and audi were both doing well against each other in terms of looks. Then BMW went ugly...so now Audi has to? :ugh:

    Look, Audi is taking a page from GM by putting uglier front ends to replace bland front ends on bland looking cars!

    It is terrible.

    The new grille is hideous.

    Front is horrible and looks like a Subaru. Rear is horrible and looks like the e90 3er (the 3er pulls off the rear look a little better but it is also my least favorite part about the e90). Again, the wheels are played out, need fresh new design.

    Looks ok in my opinion. Better than the evil mess that is the E90 3-series anyway.

    Personally it should look better in darker colours as in silver (as above) the contrast between the paintwork and the chrome grille is lost, much as with the new A6.

    Ugh, just when i thought audi designs were getting good they pull this crap. I will sell my 2001 A4 and get a B6 S4 hopefully and thats it for me. I wont like the new design.

    Jesus, B7 already? Didn't the B6 cars come out like 2 years ago?!

    And I like it. I really like the new grille. A lot. :bigthumb:

    I don't see it going away anytime soon. It will only improve.

    If it doesn't go away, that's all it can do is improve. Audi needs to do something. People have balls to buy the new S4 and A8.

    People talk about the new grille like it's as bad as a Bangle redesign...come on people, it's just the grille.

    Plus, I happen to think it looks great. Have you seen it in-person? I'll bet you haven't.

    To me it is not just the grill, if it were I might agree with you. The entire shape of the car has taken a turn for the worse. The flat looking sides coupled with sideskirts that don't flow, the retarded looking tail lights, the old style wheels, the cheap looking black inserts that surround the fog lights. I could go on...... I like Audi, always have, but this is just no good. It looks like a Hyundai design and has totally lost any semblance of style and aggressiveness that the current and previous S4s had. :wtc:
