    Merc's answer to both the new Audi A3 Sedan and BMW 1 series. I would be interested in the CLA 45 AMG model.

    Mercedes has finally designed a car that looks like a Camry.....to date the Japanese OEM's have been trying to make their cars look like a Mercedes. Go figure.

    I guess you don't watch TOP GEAR UK ;)

    Clarkson calls Mercedes Benz Mercs all the time.

    Seeing the new Lexus and Infinitis at NAIAS I think the Japanese OEMs are now chasing the Koreans.

    That car pisses me off. Modern car design has been reduced to pasting design elements onto soap-bar blobs. The intent of these haphazard design elements is to break up the blob look to the vehicle, while maintaining it's slippery aerodynamics. The designers have fallen in love with these individual elements, slapping them on the car for no reason. It is the Mr. Potatohead method. Look at this car, or look at a BMW/Ferrari/Mercedes: they all have Separate elements: Lights, fake a-pillar vent, Flame surfaced creases aping swoops and curves. Each element is all so effing precious, but makes no sense if you look at the car.

    Now look at the first picture in the OP. Really look at that travesty. This isn't like when you were a kid and your parents didn't let you stare at the auto accident as you slowly drove by. Stare at that disjointed Picasso-looking pig. Now, close your eyes. Erase the image. Now open them and look at this:

    :cornut: I do follow a variety of News orgs but too numerous to include them all on my list. I do follow BBC. Interestingly when I was overseas at remote indigenous sites, we always listened to BBC World Sevice as Voice Of America was no where to be found. Michelle Malkin, Glen Beck, Ann Coulter and Drudge are also on the list. CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN are not.:Thumbsup:
