It's pretty good actually. Bit weird sitting in a Merc saloon without a transmission tunnel though. :ban:

Had the high maintenance Matt paint on it, I can't see myself ever owning a car with this paint job.

Oh, don't like the bonnet design though. Same with a lot of cars going this way, gaps just don't look right from some angles.

Its a bit dumpy looking. Looks like a big car but squashed up. Remember those things shude did on photoshop....

Sadly this isn't photoshop. The hatch looks better

It is an odd looking car... as I said in the other thread it works better in dark colours with silver wheels... in silver / light metallics it just looks wrong... Which is not good as a merc should always work in silver.

The AMG version, or a super frugal diesel version might be just the ticket for me.

I agree, matte paint is not for me, although it does look striking.

So it actually is just as ugly as my first impressions of it were...

front joint lines remind me of:


Anyway.. each to their own.. but so far.. not a big fan

I appreciate it is probably the angle - but the shut lines and panel gap with the bumper look terrible.

It is growing on me. Still not 100%, but I am starting to really like it.
As KillerHertz says, it will sell well.

I think I like this. Would certainly be on my list if I needed a small saloon.
