Notice the single drive. No drive for nav.
I agree 100% with regard to the milk moustache. The grill looks much better off the hood. I am not sure I like the new tails very much better than the old ones. I didn't really like the original design, but they looked much better with the smoked tint. The new design just seems like another version of weird if you ask me. I am also not sure what to think about hte way the hood lines form a V when looking at the car head on.

This may the first facelift that actually made the car look worse.

I should just shut up and go buy an Audi.
I think they did a good job, the tail lights don't work for me, but the front end looks good, the interior is still boring and plain but the new wood tones REALLY help as do the 2 tone interior colors, BUT why can't they do a combo of alloy AND wood? My Treg has alloy AND wood and they good great!

On the Audi thing, the new A4 is clearly a better car than the 3 inside, by leaps and bounds, we shall see how it drives, if it drives as good as it looks, it's better then the 3 for sure.

That is just the thing...it wont drive as good as a Bimmer. That is Audi's problem. They do look nice though.

Wow. I'm not sure what to think. As an E90 owner I was really excited about the facelift. I'm underwhelmed.

I like the headlight treatment, new grille, and hood shutline but the curved lines that blend the grille with the bumper where the front license plate should go are terrible; very contrived and stick out like a sore thumb. I didn't really mind the "milk mustache" but do like the new grille better.

The rear lights look terrible on the E90 but for some reason, they look better on the E91. The way the outer lenses meet the inners ones just doesn't mesh. It sort of look like they fitted the wrong trunk lid. I do not like the current E90 rear lights either but the blacklines version are beautiful.

The new side mirrors are goofy looking. I love the current ones that look streamlined, aggressive, and modern. The facelifted mirrors are like big square ears. What an mistake!

The new iDrive controls look like a massive improvement.
