    I feel like there is too much going on in the front view.
    And somehow it all looks like a Lorinser Bodykit.

    It doesn't make me drool, but not bad either.

    I am not immediately turned off, nor do I have a burning desire to own one...

    I like the blatant rip off of the Audi LED headlights.

    It's best angle to me is the rear 3/4 view. There is something wrong with the front. Doesn't matter to me, I can't afford an S class, nor if I could would buy it anyways.

    Great...it just looks even more expensive to repair when the warranty goes.

    Ford must be liquidating the wheel arches from the Focus.

    Don't complain. They didn't make it look like the new E-class.

    The new E looks great from rear and profile, shame about the front end.

    I'd take the S8 over the S for almost the same price: Lamborghini V-10, Audi interior, less aspirational, perfect q-ship.


    The S8 is very nice, but it's also less car. Before, you could argue that the Audi interior was superior in quality, but this generation S-class's intererior is at least as good. Audi may have an available V-10, but you can get a turbocharged V-12 in an S-class.

    The E-class face is not just ugly; it's super ugly. It's hard to make up for that. Also, the tail lights look ripped off from a 90's Lexus. Terrible. The most recent generation E-class, on the other hand, is gorgeous.

    +1. They've really done well with this one.

    The S and the C look good. The E is now the ugly one. One is always ugly. However, only the Gelandewagen is gorgeous.
