IMO the new 3 series looks worst than this by miles,its the worst BMW design after the z3,z4 cars.

Mark my words this is going to one very good looking car especially with the AMG kit on.

I didn't really understand what you mean by the price is wrong it is 30.5 lakhs thing. Do you mean the 335i will be 30.5 lakhs or the 3 series (320i which is coming to India)?? Cause no way in hell is the 335i coming in here for close to 30.5 lakhs.

Your 530d looks more sporty and menacing. I guess BMW has spoiled you lol

i would still rate their current c class as a better looker than the new one.
and if i had the money i would blindly buy the 3 series and gift it to iraghava

Thats a mini S class.....
I like the current design thats if being offered with those 17" alloys..
This new design is more like the new S-class...
I think the designer are trying to make every model look the same..and offer different sizes..like the skoda...

I think the c-class should be made with a sporty feel to it..and make it look like a mini s class.

the car will have option of 2 types of grills,sports grill with the star in the middle like for the coupes and other the normal one with star on the hood like current sedans.

see the headlights carefully,they have a trick in them,the top part of the headlights actually is curved onto the bonet,so if you look grom the side they will actually look very sleek with a beautifull shape

i'll reserve my final judgement for when i see one in person.
that cls on the other hand makes me want to........earn enough money to buy one(ha, got you didnt i)

why would they offer the star in the grille? i thought it was only for their coupes/roadsters(and the cls too).
mercedes seems to want to break all traditions.

that is what the rumor is,sports grill will be for cars with optional sports pack.it will definitely be braking tradition though,maybe they are testing the design for the CLK or the C sports compact.

about the CLS i saw one few months back,it was standing in front of me fro like 25 mins and i tell you its looks fabulous,its so low and huge.BTW it was driven by a chauffeur,a CLS driven by a chauffeur
