The front is incredibly magnificent but the rear is ugly.

Here are some rear pic of the c-class. I think it is hideous. How the heck the engineers design the front so different from the rear? I hope they will redesign just the rear for the 2009 C-class. The rear bumper is too monstrous.

pictures don't quite capture it.. i think.

it looks a lot better in person.

i would say, of the 3 pictures, it most closely resembles the 1st picture.

actually do us a favor and don't get one, because that just makes our cars more rare on the road, and brings us more attention.

it's funny.. when i park it outside a restaurant during lunch, i look out the window and monitor how many people break their necks as they walk by it. it's at least 75%.

Well like I said earlier the front really looks great and I am sure everyone passes by the car will eventually stare at it. Anyway just ask yourself isn’t the rear somehow at least a little disappointed?

If you have ordered a C350 and it has not been delivered it is not to late to cancel your order and purchase a vehicle with a rear-end that strikes your fantasy.

I think that the Lip Spoiler and LED-clad tail lights make a very big difference for the rear end of the W204. That being said, I love how the car looks from all angles!

I saw a W204 sport on highway in front of me. The rear end is very imposing especially when it is running at speed. My W203 looks feminine.

I don't think it's the best looking, but I like it anyway, either with or without LED.

First of all, you can't see the rear end when your in the drivers seat! Second there is no way Benz will remodel a brand new design and risk ticking off its customers who just bought it, its not a Subaru!

uh... junk in their trunk? The rear is fine to me. At first I had doubts too but it's fine in person. If you don't like the rear you can opt for the kompressor that's soon to be coming out, if that helps.
