I feel pretty much the same way as alot of the above folks do. It looks good, great front overhang (esp. for an Audi, who has been notorious with big front overhangs), cohesive design but very predicatable design. I appreciate a hexagonal grille which gives it a more casual feel versus their more upright 4-point grilles. I do wished they had integrated the screen and wrap-around dash as the current A6 has one of the best interiors in terms of aesthetics AND ergonomics. Since it's on the MLP platform, I expect great performance and a quality ride, especially when coupled with the supercharged V6. In terms of ranking designs in this class, it goes something like this.... 1) 5er...IMHO, perfection on 4 wheels 2) A6....beautiful albeit predicatable. Beautifully crafted interior. T-3) E-class...nice profile, questionable from some angles, NEEDS AMG sorts-pack to make it acceptable. T-3) Infiniti M....Nice overall package with its own character. Wished with was slightly toned town.
