Stuttgart on Fire

Mb is in a redesign Mood . The way it looks like from German Mags and Erlkoenig Pics Mb is redesign Inferno the whole Line up for Mb Cars anything from the A 2 S Class looks abit smoother. Wonder why.

I'm, personally, not liking the new redesigns as well as the previous generations. They're too squared off in lieu of "safety"..whatever happened to just not running people over or, if you're on the pedestrian side, not stepping out in front of a moving car?

Seems to be happening across the board unfortunately. I saw a new BMW (5 series probably) parked the other day and the front end was a flat and square as a box truck. It looked awful IMO.
