Be Honest

We all now by now that the BMW 335i is much better in terms of driving then the Mercedes C350, but my question is, which car do you think is more of a eye opener, in other words, which car do you think grabs more attention in the road?

Be honest guys.

In terms of look, i have to admit that the Mercedes C350 looks a little better.

the 335i catches my eye more, but I don't really think the C class is anything great. It actually is kind of boring looking IMO. It's probably split, BMW whores will always oogle at BMW's and vice versa.

i think the c class is more of an eye opener... cause i dont even see that many new C classes on the road... alot of people in the bay have 325/328s

E92/ C350/ E90. An E90 moving ahead of the C350 with the amber delete and blacklines. I park next to a C350 everyday, and I think its more impressive in the pictures to be honest.

The benz is a looker and I think wins out against 328s and non sport package 335s. Once you put the big wheels and dual exhausts the 3 is the better looker in my book.

you put a 3 and a C next to each other.......disregard for models.......

in terms of look and craftsmanship.......the C

in terms of finesse and handling..........the 3

eye opener............gotta go with MERCEDES..........

Who cares enjoy your car.. I would rather have a car that attracts less attention from the general population thats more fun to drive than drive a car that sticks out screaming I need attention..

There are a lot more Cs on the roads here, and the 335 Coupe is a unique styling that catches everyone's eyes. Not to mention the angel eyes also make people notice.

I think that a Mercedes will grab more attention, because most people think that they are more expensive, and they hardly ever see them. BMW's are a fairly common site where the less expensive ones look almost the same as the more pricey, so they are hard to distinguish from each other.

A Mercedes will turn more heads.

A C in that dark silver looks niiiiice, in comparison to an e90 that is. Gotta wait for the w204 coupe to compare to the e92. e92 rapes C350 in terms of looks imo.

Besides the owners nobody can imagine what a BMW is. It looks boring and kind of sporty. Thats it. You have to love it to drive it and drive it to love it.

The C350 is a very good looking car. It catches my eyes every time I see it. I still dont like the interior though- it looks cheap to me.

I really dont like the new C-class at all. I bet the Mercedes turns more heads only because it a new car and not that many people have them. Once they are out for a while, I doubt many people will care.

I'm sorry, stock for stock the c class blows the 3 series outta the water (sedan vs sedan) without any mods I don't really think the 3 series looks that great...just my 2 cents
