Re: One Fast Benz

You could buy one and win the nascrap championship . I'm not much of an MB fan but that one looks sweet . Costs a bit more than my house but still looks cool...

ONE.

Re: One Fast Benz

I really like the lines of that new MB line, very flowing.

Dare I say it? I think they look better than the new Beemers.

Don't just dare say it, scream it from the roof tops. Those new BMW's are butt ugly. First time I saw a commercial for the 5-series I was debating whether it was the GrandAm or the GrandPrix that Pontiac screwed up. Boy was I surprised when it popped up BMW at the end.

The MB is pretty cool, but did find it funny on this last version that it seems the Hyundai came out with that rear 3/4 styling treatment before MB did ... after years of copying MB designs. They must have worked from spy pictures.

I have tried to like it, but the Z4, in any of its versions is facking hideous.

Too flowing, IMO. Looks like they just drew a linear curve from the front bumper to the rear. Lacks creativity, IMO.

They're much more attractive in person... tight and athletic-looking. And smaller than you'd expect.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: One Fast Benz

The front shot of the CLS is decent, but seeing one in person shows just how well M-B can polish a turd. The thing is uglier than anything I've ever left in a toilet. The side profile, rear 3/4 and rear are all hideous.

Suck on that, Albertexican.

And it does not cost more than my house. Close, but nor more.

BMW could have definitely done better with the new 5 series.
