    Hi J.Seven,

    I read somewhere that the CLS was to be Mercedes attempt build a car with Jaguar style, so what does it say about Jaguar if the CLS - a pseudo Jaguar - is "above all the other Mercedes regarding Class and design"?

    Since almost every manufacturer now has a design studio in Asia, US and Europe and because they are nearly all are linked real time with full sized 3D imaging , we are starting to see cars designed by one " mind set " of blending of three cultures in every car designed . There may come a time when visual differences between Asian and European cars will blur especially at the higher luxury levels , where the well -to-do ( and knowledgable ) have been buying the same non-car luxury goods brands for decades , irrespective of country of origin.
    Best recent example : The Buick Velite concept , blending classic 1930s American Buick Y-job oval waterfall grill and subtle boatail with BMW 3 series short overhang proportions and Germanic wheel stance with feudal Japanese /Asian influences of woven fabric and golden lauquer and subdued brushed nickel tones.

    C'mon guys. We can't go blaming ALL the ugly cars in this world on Chris Bangle!

    He hasn't worked for enough car manufacturers yet to have achieved that accolade.

    Re: CLS55 AMG testing???

    Thanks for the pics, i have a couple of comments here:

    Almost everybody agreed that the design of this new model is nice but, from which I understand that the E55 competes against the new 5 Series. The S class competes against the 7 Series + Audi A8.

    Now the CLS competes aginst who?

    From what i understood after reading the article above, it going to go aginst the 5 Series..


    thanks
