i like it, it could be much better IMO but i still like it.

Likes-
-back end
-interior:)
- avant
- seats

Dislikes.....
- spack-a-matic
- Fake exhaust surrounds on back bumper- much like the RS5- so an active exhaust swell more than likely
- wheels
- ride height
- no flared arches
- no turbo
- silver front splitter


i hope it looks better in IMOLA -which they prob won't release.

The arches are far too sqaure for my liking - What a let down! reminds me of the 'Rattlesnake' :



...But if the arches were more round and they had a 'Deeper' side skirt I reckon it'll look more like how an RS should look and id be liking it.
I dont think its bad at all all by what ive mentioned. Interior is nice, front end looks mean and could be made meaner. The rears on these newer audis dont do enough for me but I could live with that.

The car itself in a different colour would look different. One of them in Daytona   ...hmmmm!!!

I thought they would have used the lump from the B8 S4    another let down to add to the non manual.

Norrs hit the nail on the head about enthusiasts.

Doesn't look 'special' enough.

i can honestly say that even if i had the spare cash, i wouldn't trade in my b5 and buy one of these

all this NA rubbish makes me laugh lol - i wonder if it will make the power it claims, unlike the rs4 b7

rass you feeling ok? you read the thread before posting aha

i'm glad someone else has taken into account a different colour, i can't say i;m the biggest fan of the red B7.

On the note of not having a mean enough looking front end, i could;'t agree anymore, i mean take the new RS3 for example. MASSIVE vents and looks seriously good from the front.



more pronounced curves and lines sort of an angry frown

NOW...imagine a ttrs with tuned ecu flying by... its a shame that they didn't put in the new 4.0l turbo engine...even the new M3 will have a turbo or supercharged engine...

The only aesthetically pleasing part for my eyes are the brakes!
The rest looks quite bland imo.
