New wheelbase: 2808mm
Old wheelbase: 2648mm
So how does it look against the B7 directly?
Note that this is just an approximation but it gives you an idea of the increased wheelbase and reduced overhang compared to the previous A4.

Very cool comparison. The difference in front overhang is pretty noticeable.

a flipped/mirrored picture? Where's the gas tank on the B7???

I think our interpretation was pretty darn close!

Style-wise, pretty damn close!
B7 vs B8 vs AW

And to all the haters who said it would never look like that... hee hee hee.

I like the reduced overhang. I always find the B7 weird in the way the top and bottom of the overhang kinda goes in, towards each other. Not sure if I'm describing it properly, but how it's so diagonal from the bottom of the wheel arch to the front of the bumper.
The B8 just looks so much better, I kind of never really liked the B7 styling, but I still loved the car because it is an Audi and in time it grew on me. From the first instant that I saw the B8 I got the feeling, the feeling you get when you see a new Audi that is just so cool. I love this new B8 and I would be so proud to own one, before I always thought that the A4 could have been better and always preferred larger models such as the A6/A8 etc, but now the A4 is magnificent. It looks so sporty, so sexy, its a real "cool car" IMO.

We do have sources, but not on this one. Now... go back and read our A7 preview article - that's an example of where I pulled out all the stops!<ul><li><a href="http://www.audiworld.com/news/07/audi-a7-sneak-peak/">http://www.audiworld.com/news/07/audi-a7-sneak-peak/</a</li></ul>
