still, muscular fenders, strong body lines, led strip on headlights, rear spoiler. I quite like it. To me that's the direction the Foz should have gone instead of making the outback bigger than the '08 forester and making the forester look like a cx7/tribeca/yada yada yada.
And I was referring to the glkk looking like the '04 -'08 model.

I have to agree, the lines on that Merc look a lot more rugged than the new SH, although I still love my SH.

SG -- I don't know, it looks more like the SH to me if anything. I guess I could see some resemblance to both, but also to the Outlander, Highlander and all others. They do all look alike now.

I kind of like it's look, actually.

Me too! I quite like it, and would buy either that or an A4 avant 2.0T if I had the cash. But it's too pretty to do Forester kinda stuff in isn't it?

This is supposed to be quite the car...based on the bulletproof c-class, they are everywhere down here in s0-cal, and I have sat in a few, and overall impressed.

Definitely on our test drive list in Oct, when the RDX gets turned in.

^^OMG, that looks horrible... Like some Civic fanboi got their hands on one and went crazy with an aero kit from ebay! :lol:

Reminds me of the of the AMG with ricer wing and Mugen stickers I spotted a few months ago...

I actually like that thing... it is very tastefully done. Saw one the other day off-base, and it was really sharp. It has all the character lines that I liked on the SG.
