    I must have missed the part where you bought the F type. It's definitely a cool looking car. Coupe or convertible? I was interested in the F type initially until I found out the coupe wouldn't be out for an extra year or so.

    It wasn't 100% criticism. But I liked that AMG and M were totally different animals in the same segment. More choice and more fuel for debate


    I like the Audi S5/RS5 because of it's perfect proportions. That 6 you posted is too long nosed and shark like for my taste. The 6GC, however, is a lot more balanced and more gorgeous IMO

    Length = elegance. The 6 was designed with looks having highest priority, which is why it's very long, very wide, and very low.

    My point is, to me disproportionate is usually not beautiful. The 6 coupe doesn't look good to me, but get the proportions right - boom, 6GC - and suddenly you have something awesome

    In person the 6 is downright stunning. Low, wide.. what more do you want? The Audi, in contrast looks totally bloated. Just my opinion.

    I don't think it's disproportionate.

    While the RS5 almost looks like a hatchback from the side.

    The AMG is better if you ask me, no stupid tech, just a big engine and 2/3 pedals.

    Fuck no. The C63 is hideous. In fact it may be one of the most ugly coupes out there. The amount of space between the top of the rear wheel arch and the bottom of the rear window frame is atrocious. The A/S/RS5 is bad enough but the C63 pushes it to another level.

    The only really good looking C63 is the wagon.

    Speaking of c classes the new looks good.

    Yeah I think the AMG wagon is fantastic because the extra weight over the back wheels makes it handle better. That's to say nothing of how absolutely ridiculous it is for a wagon to go so fast.

    Wagons look silly. I'm assuming you're either a soccer mom or from europe if you have any interest in them.

    I'm not a big Audi guy but I'd have no issue rockin' an RS4 Avant...

    I also happen to LOVE the FF because of its wagon-esque appearance (though I'm probably in the minority)...

    Some wagons actually look better than the sedan version, like the BMW 5 actually looks better in the wagon version. If you don't agree, I'm assuming you're from the States :)
