      Not feeling the rims

      Visually, they made the car look a lot, lot worse.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed.
        The more I see the A1, the more I think the GTi looks better.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm on the opposite mind. I think they made it look very hot, very sporty and very slick. Seriously, they added wheels, adjusted ride height, paint and exhaust tips. I fail to see how that would make the car look worse.

      Man, the A1 is one pissed off looking car. What the hell is its problem?

        The Mini Cooper...

        You ever had one of those guys in high school that you competed with that was always 1 step ahead of you in everything and no matter what you did, he'd still be 1 step ahead? Yeah, that's what BMW is to Audi. The A1 is pissed and wants to show BMW up.

      The grill's too small.

      That's one angry looking cockroach!
      Oh wait, I'm an Audi owner myself! What have I done?
