Mercedes-Benz
Even with that crap on it, The headlights are what it reminds me of with an Acura. Can anyone say, knock off? Looks like the designers at Benz took the headlights from them.

2007-08 W204 in Armadillo skin

Has anyone else seen this article?
http://www.thecarconnection.com/index.asp?article=8250

This is the very first sighting of the 2008 Mercedes C-Class and although it's heavily disguised, the timing is significant - indicating the W204 (as it's known by its internal codename) is right on schedule.

The next generation C-Class will arrive in the 2007 calendar year, followed twelve months later by the wagon version. And although it's hard to tell from these pictures, the new C-Class is expected to be much sportier and no longer just a downsized S-Class, but a more modern Benz which hope to gain the attention of younger and less conservative buyers.

The rear-wheel-drive sedan will be the first powered with Benz' KDI EVT (electronic valvetrain without camshafts; supercharged and direct-injected) engines, and will incorporate other new technologies including the third-generation 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

But as independent and modern as the new C-Class looks, it will be sharing even more component-wise with E- and S-Class models.

Missing my beloved Benz
This topic has already been chatted about. Its coming out the end of this year and someone needs to inform that website, that they ARE WRONG.

W203 C240
The car is expected to go on sale at U.S. dealers later in the year as a 2008 model

I found that funny...doesnt even make sense, so in 2006 we'll be getting 2015 cars...amazing the advances in automotive technology

"Mercedes-Benz is preparing a ground-up redesign of its compact C-Class model line, beginning with an all-new sedan that's due to arrive in Europe in spring 2007. The car is expected to go on sale at U.S. dealers later in the year as a 2008 model."

Later in the year refers to later in the year 2007 if one were to take that sentence into context properly.

The W204 is due to be released in mid-2007 in Europe, Sept-Oct '07 here, designated as 2008 models.

Look, this ain't rocket science, and hardly qualifies as big news - MB has these cars on a 7-year cycle. The W203 appeared mid-year 2000 in the EU, and came here in October of 2000 as a 2001 model. Sounds like they are right on schedule to me.

In the meantime, the W203 gets its final kicker in the fall in the form of the new 4-valve V6 engine family - no more 4 cylinders for our market. Even the entry-level car is going to be over 200 hp. The C350 will be terrific, of course, but vastly overpriced like the top-of-the-line always is. Since the W203 is now pretty well sorted out, the time from Oct '05 until the introduction of the new car seems like a good time to buy if you don't need to be the first on your block with the new body.

Thank you JRCT for clearing up what should be obvious to most. There is no big mystery to these lifecycles but so many seem to think so. Thanks - Start the lines for the MY08 W204.

a few years and then, after the first in line "gotta have it NOW" people are out of the way and the inevitable first year bugs are sorted out get the new body style. If I buy an '06 C350 I'll have the "current" style for about 2 years. Add in another year for the '08 first year and maybe I'll trade after that. Hmm.... sounds interesting.

Just great- a CLS clone and no side moldings (m)

Don't these people live in the real world where side moldings make a difference? Looks like MB has fallen prey to the same "form over substance" disease now afflicting BMW.
