I'm not sure how it's possible, but Audis seem to get uglier every generation.

That car is round as ****.

Other that that possibility, it seems extremely distracting and just another thing to fail.
Uhh... that'd be dangerous, not cool.

I'm pretty sure BMW LED tail lights have a low failure rate. E46 ones do anyway.

Maybe I am the only one, but I find the e46 led tails kind of ugly. The late model e39s and new 3's leds look nice more uniform instead of broken up leds sort of like inifiniti does

I think u are the only one to say that e46 led tail lights are ugly, there sick as **** and bright as hell, will never get old

Anyways those lights looks like planet Jupiters cloud storm or like sumtn out if a Tron movie, looks stupid and unrealistic

God I would hate to rear-end that car. Probably costs a fortune to replace.

yet another reason to never own an Audi outside of the warranty period.

Oh hai im Audi I understand I can never build cars of better quality, reliability and longevity than my other German counterparts so I will proceed to adorn all my recent and upcoming models with pretty lights. Pretty lights yaaaaaaay. Look at the pretty lights!

How is changing the design of the lights depending on personal taste dangerous in any way? I'm not talking about while going down the interstate at 80 mph. I'm saying, you want vette tails, change the setting. You want square tails. Change the setting. Would be cool. Kinda like the bmw Gina

Because not all tail light designs would be safe. There are a lot of morons in the world. I'd prefer the DOT and other organizations to have to certify things like light design every time they are changed.
