I hated the new E-Class, 7-Series, and 1-Series when only pictures were available. Then when I saw them on the road in person, I came around and ended up liking them a lot. IMO, you can only truly judge a car when you've seen it with your own eyes.
And to stay on topic... I love the 458, the wheels (their design as wheels themselves and how they show off those massive ceramics) in particular.
Stop putting stuff like painted reflectors and premium package in your signature. You're embarrassing.
