Agreed, but we'll have to deal with whatever Mercedes and BMW decide to publish. The Mercedes press kit only has black for the sedan while all E90 pics show light colors (AW, Bluewater, etc).

like them both. However, MB did well with the interior reconfiguration of buttons layout.

why does mercedes, porsche, and audi have to make up for the fact that bmw has angel eyes with those DISGUSTING led strips? those are the ugliest things ever. i loved the c class when it first came out



look at the interiors. bmw always makes an ergonomic interior. mercedes looks a bit cheap frankly. that "little interior" trim reminds me of the 1 series interior trim. dislike the buttons near the seat bolsters. hopefully you don't accidentally sit on them. never liked how THING the handles of the MB steering wheel are. too thin.

BMW makes the best sports saloons. everyone else is just trying to be as good.

It's funny that in photos, the E9x front end appears so squashed. It really doesn't look like that in person at all...

the bm color should have been other than white. the LCI headlights of the c class has some clues of the new SL... I like the interior but the exterior needs a refresh because its very bland.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Why does the new C only have one exhaust? The current one has dual exhausts on both sides...

I didnt think it was possible to make an already hideous car look worse, but they did.

I like the look of the bimmer (obviously)

But damn, the C-class looks small compared to the 3er... the 3 should be the smaller one imo. Benz's should be big and executive

Never liked the rear lights on the MB. Tried the E350 coupe before I bought 335xi coupe. MB too soft of a drive for me...

IMO.

Exterior:

E90LCI M-Sport > E90LCI & C-Class > E90 > C-ClassLCI

Interior:

E90LCI & E90 > C-ClassLCI > C-Class


Honestly, I was amazed for how much the interior of the C-Class Facelift got better that before. I actually kindda like that steering wheel. Damn,,WTF is wrong with me?!
