    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    zz,
    Problem is in the fact that MB marketing forced all new facelifts-all models look like each other. Their logic is CLS>SL...

    Check out Infiniti M35 head lights design...


    Very new SL-like or vice versa?

    Those new headlamps look like they came from the new Cayenne I loved the original SL headlamps. They got it right the first time. Now it's been spoilt



    I couldn't agree more. What have they done?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Good find, Kreso!

    Anyone knows what those black things in the headrests are? Looks like some TFT for the rear passengers -- but there are no rear seats... Air scarf exhaust? 4th and 5th brake light?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    The car design looks confused, inside and out.
    The older model looked so elegant in comparison.

    Indeed...

    BTW, check out SL600...


    Matt silver trim on Mercedes badge and side vents is such a cheap thing...

    After seeing this pics only thing I can do is or keep your hands from this piece of

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Too bad I was hoping for a nicer refresh actually.

    BTW does anyone else notice a pattern here MB facelifts usually crap up the original design while BMWs ussually make them better?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Yes i did and that's why they will lose market

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    yak! didn't like it. :\

    It's worse.

    That usually happens, if you try to alter a nearly perfect design. Let's hope Porsche won't make the same mistake with the 997...

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    it's weird, the facelift actually makes it look more dated than the pre-facelift

    That's what happens when you try to combine the beautiful, rounded hips (the back) with some cheap origami (the front). The car has no cohesion and I would much prefer the pre-facelift version, even at the same price.

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    great job, Rossi
    The drivers of the new SL never will understand why I'll laugh like crazy when I'll spot the car on the road

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    I'm still laughing Rossi!

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Probably a future internet classic!

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Uahhh... this car is ugly!

    This SL never had the class of the precessors. And this new front has just too many elements. Power domes are to much.

    Whole car doesnt look like it is out of one glue it looks like a cheap pimped SL.

    Nooo go!

    Indeed. The system is incorporated into the headrests, hence the voluminous shape, so you'd see the fans feeding air into your hair...

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Classic Haha! ET headrests come as an option?

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    too much ground clearance, no worries for scrapping underhood!

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    ROFL "ET headrests".... I love it

    Re: Mercedes Benz Unveils SL Facelift teaser

    Is this air scarf or a luggage comp.
