That steering wheel is hideous. Looks like a pain in the ass to operate that center console, especially the lower buttons. Having one button for each gear (P, R, N, D) at the top of the center console seems kind of odd as well.

I believe Audi even made a statement owning up that their cars look too similar and are looking to distinguish them from each other soon.
That said, I have zero trouble differentiating any Porsche, Audi, BMW, or Aston for that matter from one another...I'm surprised any of you fellow car nerds would have trouble...
You should've switched the pictures of the A6 and the A8, just to see if anyone noticed.

I mentioned this a few months ago here and y'all thought I was crazy when I said the new GS is the best drivers car in the segment, things have changed, BMW today is the old Lexus minus the reliability...

Well based on Lexus' past and them getting rid of the big engine for the GS and the fact that people didn't warm up to the spindle grill off the bat, you can see why people doubted it.

The back is boring as hell and the front looks a bit simple, I was only starting to appreciate the one of the current E series.

I like it.

Wonder why they went away from the dual lights on the e.

Not mine, but looks close.

The front headlights of that new E look like some kind of hellspawn of the current Audi style and Volvo S60 headlights.

The back looks like it has largely gone unchanged, which was the worst part of the outgoing model. I kinda dug the front end of that E.

I need to see it in person. Not sure how well I like what I see in the pics.

Mercedes have lost it with the proportions of the grill/headlights on this and the latest SL.
post #7663 of 14786
^ Disagree.... the merc looks good. I like the lines.
post #7664 of 14786
I dislike the headlights too, way overwrought and they look like something you'd buy on Ebay. For an E-class, the look should be pretty sedate and classy - this is one of the best selling cars worldwide, it's not supposed to be crazy looking. The deletion of the pontoon fenders in the rear is good though. Overall, if they could've kept the original face, and just deleted the pontoons and updated the rear, it would've been fine to go for awhile longer.
