Visual comparison A5 vs. F32 (concept)

Apologies for opening a new thread on the topic, but I think no one has opened one similar to it. If so, sorry

As many people have said that the new F32 is very similar in the back, I made a little visual comparison. I have transformed F32's wheels to 19" and also "I have fitted" a higher suspension to make it look more real.
I think the difference is remarkable, with a roof that starts down before and much more stylized with more glass.....
Also I put a pic of my E92 to complete the comparison

nice comparison, I hate how bloated looking the newer bmw's are looking. A lot has to do with that fat and flat noses coming out.

I really love the E92/3 body.

I like your E92 the best of those

Same. Your car looks gorgeous, and actually better than the f32 concept (from this angle). Turn both cars a few more degrees in either direction, and the f32 shines again. The e92 still looks dated. Sorry bud.

Thanks for the compliments . I still find the E92 very beautiful in side view (my favorite view ) but elsewhere, the F32 is on another level.
What I dislike, it's even longer. And for this reason, when replacing the E92, maybe I would choose the 2 series over the 4 series...

Yes, audi, looks really bloated!

I think there is a lot of "rake" design in the E92 that makes it seem more aggressive IMO. For instance, the shape of your side skirts rise slightly towards the rear. That body seam somewhat continues with the rear bumper and quarter panel seam On the 4er, the side skirt is completely horizontal and flat.

Even the door handle crease line on the E92 from front fender to tail light has a lot more "rake" to it compared to the F32. The new 4er looks flat in respect, and thus not as aggressive.

Yes, I agree. The side of the F32 is more classic and elegant, but instead, I think the front is far more aggressive, even without the bumper of the concept, but which presumably will...

The E92 is a wonderful looking car and is almost entirely responsible for my aspirations to own a BMW. I have always thought its shape was near perfect and I can't imagine ever tiring of it.

Still, I prefer the lines of the F32, particularly the rear third. The way in which the rear window extends further along the roofline gives the car a more streamlined and aerodynamic look.

And whilst I prefer both BMW's over the Audi, the A5 has its own qualities and these pics don't really do it justice.

Nice comparison though

Wow shows how outdated the E92 looks. It isn't going to age well like the E46 and E30 has

In theese 3 shots the E92 wins, but i've seen my car next to an Msport F32 in Shaphire Black and trust me, mine looked so dated.
It's not like comparing a E46 with an E92, but the new 4 really looks awsome in real life.
