I don't understand why people don't like the A7. It really looks nice in person.
While I'm a big fan of the A4 and A5, the A7 has some visual cues that just don't work for me, like the way the hood/headlight integration is done; there's something that seems off proportionally (like the grille of the A8, which I think is just so massively oversized with those odd, droopy looking headlights on the side). The back end of the A7 also - almost illusion-like - looks really long. I could certainly see how impressions would be different seeing it in person... problem is that most of the pictures I've seen - which are the *best* shots from Audi themselves and other pro photogs - just don't look all that great, so I don't feel compelled to seek it out.

The A5/S5 is just perfection to me in the current Audi lineup in terms of aesthetics. But that's the thing w/ looks... it's all pretty much subjective.

Edit: Wow, I thought that Jag was some kind of Hyundai at first!
