WOW!

i like it!
i always thought the r230 was nice but too curvy... this would be the perfect r230!
i wonder how much it costs....

This is where it gets ridiculous:

You're right, it looks pretty good from most angles but IMHO there's an unhappy relationship between the nose height and the cabin from the side.

It's ok but I still like the r129 better. Like Andrew said too curvy.

1+ here!
I prefer the shape of the R129 over the R230
+2

The 129 is hot, I personally don't like the way the R230 looks at all. Butchering a poor 129 with that body kit is a crime :(

I don't get it. It has to be expensive and you could probably get a 230 for the price of that plus a 129. That is if you dont already own the 129...

Just hate seeing non MB engineers engineering look a likes. JMO

That side view is the worst for sure.

i do really like what they did with the exhaust.........
the rest of it is a destroyed r129... but its an improvement of the r230! (minus the one side view)

Awe come on, the real R230 looks cool, not this one, the only down side to the R230 is that I can't get my golf clubs in the trunk!

Also, I think this hybrid will look a tad better if the nose is off a face lifted 230, 2010 and up... then it wont be as pointy...

The wheel base seems too short given the long front and rear overhangs ... it looks to me like clowns (or Shriners) will come pouring out whenever you stop at a stoplight! No offense meant to clowns or Shriners, of course! ;)

Anyone on this forum who seriously think of tapering with his r129 will be sentenced to death by snu-snu.

If you want an r230, or any other MB model, get one.
