Don't like the eyebrows.

I saw one in person and thought it was too bulky/had too many aggressive lines. It was almost as if too many parts of the car were vying for your attention. I prefer smoother lines and more subtle styling. I'm probably nitpicking because I'm sure it's a tremendous car, but I'm just not wild about its "presence."

Bingo.

Supposedly Mercedes did this to comply with new pedestrian saftey regulations in Europe. But what I don't understand is why BMW didn't do it... or if they did, they did a much better job of hiding it.

hm, everytime i see pics of C class... sometimes i like it, sometimes i don't...
i like the C63 design, but the amg option doesn't seem to be that appealing to me... maybe i haven't got used to it.
