    I personally do not like the design. I find it very...Bangle-esque. I love the old designs posted by FB and LK.

    This is design seems to be missing something. It is very odd for a MB design as you can not tell it is a MB at first glance.

    In fact it looks like a KIA as do all the new MB designs. I am not sure whats going on at Diamler.

    Well, they tired designing cars that look like Kate Beckinsale, but failed miserably. [​IMG]

    Haha, I knew it was a joke, but I thought it was based on the avatar and a model of car, which lookes like, Kate Beckinsale as well.

    No car looks as good as she does. Although, a few come close.

    BMW has had ambient lighting for a while across their entire range, in their traditional orange-red instrumentation color, albeit only over the central console. That instrument cluster is fugly.

    The lines totally not what I expect in an S-class. The interior is fine, but i've never loved the interior of any merc.


    i've seen quite a few lately, and they look nice. not a merc guy myself, but i don't mind it.

    in car circles, "merc" is short for mercury, a division of the ford motor company.

    Actually, the British tend to use "˜Merc' as slang for Mercedes.

    Audi has a fantastic red lighting scheme.
