Someone hit the old A8 grill with the ugly stick. I wonder if they need all that cooling for the funky, heavy W12 motor.

i actually like the new look as long as it is functional. If the car needs all that air in the engine, then let them have the big grille.

That's not what's going on there, though. There is nothing functional in that grille, just a bigger chrome trim ring for looks. Personally, I don't like it, and every Audi will start to use this grille style. I hope it grows on us.

It looks like the car just ate up a bunch of chicken wings loaded with barbeque sauce, and the sauce is all around it's mouth. Give the car a napkin.

That style grill is from the Lemans Quattro concept and I guess all Audi's will get this style. Maybe people will warm up to the style... :huh:

EEEEEeeewww....
Grille looks like a whale opening it's maw feeding on crill. Does the regular A8 get this grill treatment?
I doubt the grille is functional as the VW W12 doesn't have this grille.

Hope this doesn't appear on A4.

I think I've heard it's coming for 2005 on the A4 :( My parents bought an A4 this year when they heard that since they nor I like the new grill...

My mother had to have AWD...heh... the current one isnt that bad looking... ours is an A4 Quattro 1.8T silver sedan...

Actually, the W12 is lighter and smaller than a V12. this is an Aluminum block as well.
