I love the angry look of it. This the best CLS yet. The tail is still the let down. This is the first CLS I've liked. The best tail in this segment by far was the first Audi A7.

...gimmick alert. smells of desperation to amp up some kind of cool factor. I don't like their new dash(es) at all. none of them, given they all look the same. quoting someone else, they're all crap. ;-) the new BMW 6/8 grand coupe 4-door thingy will eat its lunch.

I'd say I still prefer it over the super sober and technical (or straight edged and slightly boring) Audi interiors, and the bulbous and overdone BMW interiors, but th ewow factor it had in the S-Class is really wearing down, especially by the time even the A-Class will have more or less the same interior, including the gadgetry of LED bling disco lights. They look funky in a small hatchback or a Prius, but not sure about a luxury vehicle....

Dear God. I can't think of a Mercedes design fail quite like this.

Have you sat in the cars themselves? Why I don't think they're quite as miraculous as the press makes them out to be, they're pretty nice, IMHO. What I don't like is the obscene width of the dash in the C-Class or the infuriating changes to the COMAND system (which was okay in base form in the previous gen).

I like the airiness of the Audi interiors, but some of the materials (at least on the convention floor) looked a little questionable (in the A4).
