RE: The next MBs
Thanks to Cyrx for posting some pictures of the future MBs. I am sorry to say that I do not like them at all. None of them struck me as "beautiful and timeless". I prefer the designs of old MBs like W124, W201, W126. These old models may look a bit too angular compared to the recent cars but their profiles look sturdier and timeless. They are the classic MBs!!!
Another aspect which I personally like about the old MBs is the placement of power windows switches in the center console (around the gearshift). I find this to be very convenient and ergonomic. Thus, it is unfortunate that in new MBs they are placed on the driver's side door panel.
Just my opinion but I much prefer the looks of old MBs than the new ones....Old ones look more unique and classy....whereas new ones look too blend (e.g. the new C-class look similar to the current Ford Focus and Mondeo.....too bad!!!)....My W201 is similar to no other car and is unique...I like it that way....
