Did you see the arse pics of the S5 in my R8 thread? I got to see it up close and personal and wasn't impressed. I'm a wicked huge fan of the new Audi front end, but the rest of the car looks like a Mercedes/BMW cross and I don't like the curves or lines at all.

The S5 looks almost identical to the 335i

I did get to see pictures of the rear end and its not bad looking, but I'm not impressed, I think it doesnt match the rest of the car

I got to drive one through an auto-x course at Infinion raceway last week. Pretty cool car. Just looks so much like a Chevy Monte Carlo SS.

hmmmm, I totally disagree with that comparo...I think they look NOTHING alike, outside of being 2 door coupes, etc.

The seats are beautifully shaped and countoured, I could fondle it all day long!

It doesn't look anything like a Monte Carlo.
Though I think the side windows looks a bit like a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Coupe:


I really like the styling.  The only design fault is that I think it looks a bit too chunky at certain angles, but I'm sure like most Audis the syling will age gracefully.

I only came up with that conclusion after seeing them in person.  From certain angles......Monte Carlo.  Other angles, not at all alike.

I think I have to reserve judgment until I see it in person, but in pictures, it is still damn sexy.
