I liked the old E46 M3 with hardtop but the new M3 hardtop looks weird. The rear window has too much glass. It looks too big and the structure looks weak. I'm glad Audi went with this setup.

The last pic gives it away. It's based on the A5. The other pics you can also see the A5 headlight design

Definitely...still, very subtle. +1 on not going with the hard top. Audis are fat enough already.

i actually prefer the look of soft top over hard top conv in most cases. Hardtop makes the shape all messed up when the top is up. Softop just more classy and doenst ruin the line of a car as much.. of course, coupes are still the best
the one exception is the new Ferrari California.. man, what a beautfy.. top up or down.

Meh. It lost the all-important roofline. Just give it two more doors and call it an A4 cab.

Kudos to them for not doing that. Just more weight.

+1 about the roofline, that annoys me...

On the plus side though it's still nicer than it's rivals. I can also confirm the S5 Cabrio has the new 3.0 TFSi (its mentioned in the official press details!). Here's more pics of A5/S5 Cabrio.

The side view of the car looks like a MB and it looks like shit to me...nothing different except the front of the car looks hot, other than that, I would never part ways over my E93 for the Audi

Wait.... correct me if I'm wrong, but a4 cabs have 2 doors right? If so, are they going to scrap the a4 cab completely? I don't really see the point in having both, especially since they would be so similar.
