Really good photos. Thanks. I think the front and rear look really nice. I just can't get over the profile. I would love to have this as a second car, but if it came to buying this or an e90, the latter wins hands down.

That dash is incredibly tacky for mercedes. I definitely wasn't expecting that. Good work, Hyper... even if you do need to change your tampon

the exterior looks like shit but the interior looks way more comfortable/luxurious than BMW's (which makes sense)

ok at best - it just looks awkward, kind of like the S-Class' retarded ugly little sibling. The back is attrocious - like others said very hyundai esque, trunk lid spoiler is nice but the trunk is just too tall - proportions look like crap - reminded me of a prius or other small compact rear.

As for the interior, well lets just say

FYI I am not a Benz hater - I love the CL63 AMG Black edition, CLS etc but this new C has gone wrong

Looks much better than before but I don't like that rear, especially the tail lights. Looks like a saggy old butt. I actually think the notorious bangle-butt is better looking than this butt.

Thanks. Honestly I didnt get into the nav because I wanted to focus on driving the car. I thought the popup screen was pretty cool though and was very large and readable even in direct sunlight.

I wont lie looks good. Styling is not that bad. I find the old version to look sportier though. But I like it.

I'll have to test drive one once they are available. Doubt I would get it as my next purchase due to wanting something more powerful and a coupe.

Yeah, seriously. At least BMW was a little more subtle about it. That looks like some random guy's handiwork to hide a scratch or something but he ran out of body-colored tape...

nice pics but i have a question, i see a pull for the hand brake, then there is another pedal that in suvs acts as a parking break ......so which one do we use to release the parking brake? what is that pedal for?

Some pedal parking brakes release when you push them in again after you push it all the way down, almost like a second tap. This one isnt like that. You push the pedal all the way down and its locked. You need to pull that lever under the light switch to release the pedal back up.

I test drove one as well as they have a demo C300 Sport here at Fletcher Jones MB in Vegas. The car drove very nicely and with the mobile entertainment package was a nice set up. Compared to the 328i I would have to say IMO the C300 is a nicer car. The main reason I went with the 335i is the motor ... but if I was going for a more of a nice daily driver without the a sporty motor the C300 is all of that and more compared to the 328i

Although I like the C300 one thing bugged me a LOT about it and it was the dash. For some reason it seemed VERY plasticy to me and the dash on my friends C230 Sport (2007 model) seemed much nicer.

I know a lot of you are hating on the looks of the car but in person I find it stunning. The car looks bigger then the old C and seems almost the size of the new G35 (which again if your going for looks/comfort it fits the bill). This car dumped on a set of 20" LMs is going to be super hot!

just take at look at the new C63:

i think it looks great. The c63 is gonna be sick. I think that the e90-1-2-3 interior is way better though. .

the exterior isnt bad. I does look a little too busy IMO. The dashboard is absolutely horrible for a Benz. The interior looks cheap as well. I'd buy a BMW/Lexus over that.

the S-class on the other hand, WOW!

Just went to see C280 and C350 myself yesterday (not had a chance to test drive one though) .... interior-wise, I was surprised it was smaller than e90, especially in the back seat. The buttons on the interior were confusing, but I like the dashboard (leaning towards lexus).

Exterior, love the front especially the amg version (the original grill is hideous). Hate the rear, looks cheap.
Since it doesn't use RFT, it has a spare tire space in the trunk which I think best suits me. Right now, I carry spare tire in my trunk and it practically occupies half of the trunk space.

Overall, this exceeds my expectation for new c class..... i wanna test drive this later before my final judgement. In indonesia, it will be a crazy copetition between bmw 3 series and merc c classe.
