and the chrome would look better on a light colored car. So in this case a chrome grill would look better.

That also goes for the Audi's .I'm sorry but they should shoot the ****tards who designed this and passed off on it.

well, its already been released, so there's not much reason to b!tch and complain. I've just learned to live with it. I gotta admit though, the VW design came out MUCH WORSE than Audi.

I can't imagine any of those project cars ever becoming a factory production vehicle, but... I could be wrong.
The "good news" is all that nifty hardware can be stuffed into a A3 just as easily as a Jetta or Passat. ;)

It's just to bad that the Chinese market is driving the design on most of the new cars front ends as they like the look of the Edsel inspired front end. If you think I'm wrong look into the old Quattro Quarterly were they said that the chinese wanted a more rounder and pronaunced grill on the car and walla a couple of year's latter here we are with a ugly monstrosity for a front end. Why you might ask well there is the fact that china is the fastest and largest growing market for cars on the planet right now so who do you think they are going to try and please a market were they might sell 100,000 units a year or the country that has the potential of over 500,000 to a 1,000,000 units a year . You do the math it's not to hard to figure that one out.
