Doesn't look good

  1. I have to agree. Maybe the angle of that single picture is just a bit unflattering, but it looks weird to me. That styling seemed to work for the C, but it's not working on the SL.
     
  2. oh goodness... I wouldn't complain if the previous car hadn't been a better looking one.... the only restyling of the SL that I've seen that really worked at all was the fisker tramonto.... this isn't so bad, but the CLS style lamps don't really fit with the CL style grille...

    and the redesigned fender vent reminds me more of a chrysler crossfire than the original SL or the big-money SLR.... this is an unsuccessful redesign...

    ...but I wouldn't call it ugly. I mean... the aztek... that's an ugly car... a redesigned SL that loses some grace? that's merely a bad decision...

     
  3. It'll still sell well.
     
  4. unfortunately.
     
  5. dat ting iz nastee
     
  6. It does'nt look overly bad, it's just very uninspired. It isn't the car you look at and say, "DAMN! I'm GETTING one of THOSE!" I'll hold judgement until I see the AMG version. Maybe a little agression is just what this needs.
     
  7. It isn't ugly, just very uninspiring as some one said. It doesn't have any pop, not a car I would spend 100k on (what are they goin for these days?). Its almost like the designers got lazy, and just combined the front end of the CLS with the overall styling cues of the old SL (two models ago, not the last one). Hopefully it looks better in person, pictures just don't do some cars justice. Simply put, this would have been hot 6 years ago, not now..it almost has a 90's feel...very dissapointing
     
  8. I don't like it either. But give it some time to grow on you. It'll work believe. I've experienced that so many times in the last years with Mercs and BMWs.

    And if not, lucky you! The redesign will lead to lower prices for the old shape.

    If I had the money, I'd go for a new CL anyway. Nice and sporty cruiser.
     
  9. Agreed.

  10. You guys are all fussy.
     
  11. Shut up, old man. It's gross and deformed. I guess it's lucky you can't see around those cataracts. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Not better at all. Too bad, as the SL is a pretty good car.
     
  12. Looks good, you FAGGOTS suk.
     
  13. It looks ordinary. Like all merc.
     
  14. You people are just biasing your opinions off of one picture that really dosnt do justice to the car, go online, and look at some other pictures, then come back, and repost your opinions. i think you will be surprised.
     
  15. So, now there are more pictures, but I still think it doesn`t look good
     
  16. The car is awesome
     
  17. Like I said in the previous forum, don't expect this car to look like an AMG because its not an AMG. In terms of standard looks, it is perfectly fine.
