Um, I think the Audi A4 is one of the hottest looking cars on the road, and
the S4 will be even hotter. I was skeptical about the TT, but I love it.
Truly original styling.
In fact, out of all the cars out there, the only NEW cars I would buy are an
Audi A4, a Mercedes Benz C280 Sport, or a Lexus GS400 (I absolutely LOVE
that one!!!!!). I think the GS400 really raised the bar for which all
sports sedans will be measured. IT IS that impressive!!!!
I do think the mid-80's Audis had great character as well, and I am the
owner of two type-44's.
The thing that did scare me was.....I saw some pictures of the potential
next generation A4.....UHHhhhhAhhhhh! It was UGLY. I would never like it
either. Looked like some crazy japanese concept car for those inner-cities.
Let's just say I hope Audi sticks with the current desighn for many years.
I think the one benefit of it's styling is that it's looks will keep for a
I'm not crazy about the Audi A6 either. My mom has a '97 and I think it's
beautiful. Yes, car needed a restyling, but I think they went too extreme.
The car is ok, except for the back of it. I really don't like the back end
of that car at all. Gotten more used to it, but I still don't like it.
I am also scared as I don't like what Volkswagen has done. I used to like
just about every car they made and now I don't like one. The Jetta III was
a work of art.... The Jetta IV (the new one) looks stupid. It also rated
last in a comparison test with 5 of it's competitors!!!!! Kind of a step
backwards, wouldn't you say? A friend of mine just bought a new Honda
Accord V6, and I must say it's not bad. It also drove very nice and was
very smooth (unlike the late 80's accord I used to have...that was a real
POS!). This car was very refined and drove more like an Acura. Way ahead
of a Volkswagen in my books, and looks a hell of a lot better too!
Just blabbin on my opinions. BTW, Most of Audis styling is done right here
in the US. They have a huge desighn studio in Simi Valley, California.
