The front end is too bullnosed, the dash is just a series of pods, and the aggressive door panels don't match the other bland styling ques. It's a mismash of an SLS and an SLK... and a poor one at that... not feeling it. (and I'm not just saying it because I'm an R230 fanboy)

It's another beautiful entry in the SL line up but as for front end exterior aesthetics, I think the last gen (facelifted) was and still is absolutely stunning. I will say this though, the new interior is gorgeous!
