The aggressive front was cool on the C class. It's so unfitting of the classically elegant SL. Barf

I think I'm gonna blow chunks. Seriously, how could they possibly botch up a design this badly? I seriously feel like Mercedes took every possible front end design element and mish-mashed em together and ended up with this bastardized offspring. What's up with the rear valance? And those side gills that are probably "influenced" by the SLR...no...not working.

None of it works for me, and I seriously considered the SL to be a work of art in terms of GT design. My friend, a Benz loyalist through-and-through, made a comment to me long ago talking about the SL. He said, "how are they gonna change it? It's perfect (to him of course)". Fast-forward to today, I lol'd.

What the hell is wrong with MB??? Wow. They ruined the classical looks of the R230, IMHO the 2nd best looking SL other then the previous generation 91-01 SL.

it's not great, but I certainly wouldn't "ewww" it. That model has looked pretty much the same for a while, they need more of a change.

they have been doing so well as a brand. With Cls, Cl, and C class, all stunners along with the M doing well and not to mention the sexy S550.

This is disappointing.
