    Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Quote:
    The biggest change will be the CLS-style headlamps together with a new bumper and grille. Camouflage over the rear lamps is hiding a new shape and new diodes that are light emitting (LED).

    Another feature already in the SLK that will finally come for the facelifted SL is the AIRSCARF, which is an air vent built into the headrest and blows warm air on your neck so you don't get cold when the top is down. How posh...

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Looks great! Much better without the peanut shaped headlights. Very sinister...

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Glad that I'm done with SL's, they get facelifts etc. too often.

    I prefer the look of the current SL more still

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    They really need to update the interior. No mention of it in the article.

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Aging with dignity this is not. Like a 70 yr old lady getting cosmetic surgery.

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Those headlamps are disgusting! Sheesh! It's the one ugly feature on the CLS and guess what they lifted from the CLS to the SL? Yuk!

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    i prefer the current sl..

    You mean something like this...


    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    My opinion is that all new Mercedes cars (except new S class which looks great) looks worse than predecessor..

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    ugly! i prefer the 2003 pre facelift model

    And the badging was better in the past either... Just think of "CL 500" vs "500 SEC". Ah, the good ol' days.

    Holy crap... Grandma!

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    I think it just get worse, the new dame-edna lights look hideous... for me the old sl is cool but everything produced after the mid 80:s Bobby Ewing car just fit best in a drug-dealer garage...

    Why don't develop the good old gullwing SL further and keep the classic lines

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Seems like they are giving it a CLS look.

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    One word: hideous

    We haven't seen the car yet.. And when the important part is talking (i.e. the wallet), it often tells companies quite different things then what they'll hear in an online forum

    You may dislike the amount of facelifts they give their models, but it's hard to understand how you can dislike a facelift you haven't seen yet

    Are you kidding? Whether a hand full of posters here think the new SL is ugly is irrelevant.

    This car will be a very big hit for MB.

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    Those headlights look Nissanish, but in person maybe the cars shapes all come together.

    With LED technology it doesnt really make sense to have such huge headlight assemblies. They look fragile and expensive to replace.

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    I don't mind HOW MANY facelifts they do. I only care about how it LOOKS.

    Maybe it will be a commercial success. After all, enough people buy ugly cars like the BMW 5 series...

    Re: Latest Mercedes SL Major Facelift

    This is hilarious. Porsche owners complaining about styling. What do you know about styling? You buy a retro frog and believe it looks great.

    This car looks pretty good and certainly a hell of more modern and stylish than the 911.

    Pheeww.. at least you score some points for being persistent

    Seriously, don't you ever get tired of doing it

    People have different taste, that should not come as a shock to anyone. Just take a look the person posting before me

    I quite like the 5-series styling

    Hey Nick, taste is totally subjective/personal. I can't stand the headlamps on this proposed SL pic. Period. You don't like the 911. That's absolutely fine with me. More power to you! It's your right to like/dislike whatever you wish. Similarly, I can like/dislike whatever I want. That's my credo. The way I see it, at the end of the day, it's all about being passionate about cars. IMO it's better to be passionate about something in life than have no passion at all about anything

    Nick, quit half stepping. Just up and call the 997 a fast toad. Quit mincing words about it.

    So the uber toad is charming to some people, cest la vie

    But how in the same breath you can praise the new SL headlights I donno. Visit a Lexus dealer and you will see many new SL look headlights!

    Maybe the elliptical nostrils on the F430 have altered
    your perception of design reality?

    Maybe you are suffering from crypto Lexus envy

    Just keepin it real here!

    It's all about today's vehicle designs. That angular approach isn't just Lexus it's BMW, the S550 has some extra lines, and now even Porsche with the new rear lights they will be adding to the mix.
    Might not be our cup of tea but they have to modernize.
