I agree with what others have said. I only recently started to appreciate current model so when I seen these pics I wasnt too impressed. I think the headlights came from a good idea but the execution wasnt so good. I think the units could have been shaped more like the CLS headlights instead (which look great). Also, execution of AMG sports grille is poor as it looks like an A/C class. Again, any AMG trim should be based on models like the CLS/CL which still look classy. The other problem is that the rounded features look weird on an overall angular design.
And yes, any radical change should have been on interior. I dont like the centre console much. 5er and A6 look better.
