The front bumper also looks like an afterthought. I was one of the few who loves the large lower dual air intakes that were on the CS. This just looks bland. C'mon BMW, pull through for me.

Hopefully those camo strips cover up some of the flaring.

I hate the front of the S-class because it's so bland and doesnt look like a new gen model! The rear lights are also a joke but dont look AS bad as pics. The only time I like the new S-class is in AMG trim, but even still I prefer this new 7 series...and yeah the S wheel arches are a joke lol.
both you are so right, said everything I would've had to type

Pisses me off when pedasstrians just walk out into the street or cross somewhere without looking or making sure the coast is clear. I always say, they shouldn't trust drivers so much, because there are a lot of people that might not be paying attention to them and hit them
