Nice. The car really needed the headlight change.

i thought preface lift was fine? idk i feel like bmw is the only company that REALLY needs face lifts sometimes. audi and benz do a good job of keeping their exterior looks more up to date than bmw imo

I thought I would like this new facelift but I think I prefer current model. I think the sport grilles look good on the C-class and models like the SL but the E class doesn't suit it. The execution is also quite poor. Although I'm not going to say much more till I see official pics. I think MB will probably offer it with a choice of 2 grilles like the C-class.

That front bumper looks like it has the potential to make the Gallardo redesign look good. Wheels are awful, roof looks stupid, headlights look like they're trying to accomplish 42 different themes, sides still look like my refrigerator. Otherwise, I'm a big fan!

I like that they went back to the star grille, but I don't really care for the front bumper or headlights.

The styling is now from the correct decade. Let's see if they make similar gains with the interior.

Front bumper looks like an afterthought. Car has too many sharp edges/corners to have a front bumper that bubbly and round. Need a better angle. Looks like they copied the new Vanquish bumper with the upward angled lip and a second lip on the bottom

It has been known for sometime a refresh of the e-class sedan and coupe were coming. Major change is going from a dual headlight to a single.

I've been tempted by the E63 in the past (not so much anymore now that I'm doing quite a few track days), but I've always been bothered by such a performance car having a big central speedo/info display at the expense of a tiny tachometer off to the side. MB should take a design cue from Porsche on this one--they know how to do instrument displays.
