      It's easy to mistake a vibrator for a shoe.

      Is that a giant woman or a giant vibrator?

      And you don't have to call me God, Jason works.
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      I think it is interesting and unique and will sell so well.

      I guess we will not see it in USA cuz of your ignorance. Look at others' post here.

      I drive a wagon right now and would be happy to get another one if I could find one that has what i want. I doubt I ever will in the US. That said, I find the E-class to be much more attractive and don't see what makes this a CLS shooting brake. The American car market is not pressured the same way that the European car market is so if someone wants more room in their car they will just by a bigger sedan, not a smaller wagon.

      Hate the fact that the window line strays from the roof line so much...there are alot of other aspects of that car's design that aren't very Merc-like and emit more of a Japanesey styling language. Disappoint. Mercedes design team needs to go back to basics and take some aesthetics classes....seriously.

      Hot damn. Love it. I think we're being double fooled by the window treatment; I suspect it still comes out like the last shown concept or whatever it was. Want.

      That looks great. I don't think the colour shows off the car very well though. Can't wait to actually see one in person.

      I guess since they make a 4 door coupe, they consider this a shooting brake and not a wagon,

      It's a smash roof E-Class; not exactly a very large car, 113" wheelbase.

      amazing?

      whatever mercedes is doing to their front end beak is repulsive. too quick between the model changes, they really are pushing the SLS front end.

      I think it's really handsome, sure as hell a great option for someone who wants some serious style to their station wagon.

      For a second I wondered why the hell they would offer this alongside the E-Class, but I'm sure the E-Class wagon probably has considerably better cargo and passenger space, and will be better for those who truly need a wagon.

      well, not every place in the world is offered a C-Class wagon, including the USA.
