Everyone's trying to come up with their own unique signature lighting. Audi kind of started it all in the R8 and then now their whole line up.

While they lost their way for a bit, I think they're getting some of their swagger back. New Accord is quite nice, and the refreshes made to the ILX, at least in terms of powertrain, really bring it...

Very common on many cars, helps keep the hard edge of the car further back to protect pedestrian impact. Less clean design aesthetic for sure. Part of it could also be driven by limits of the hard...

I've had extensive time in the Q3, and agree with the article, that this is basically good for Audi circa 2006-2009 or so. This vehicle is at the very end of its lifecycle, and to someone within the...
