I sure know you are very busy Jeff, and I'm impatient for your coverage of Chicago Show, but actually rendezvous65 posted this on the boards in December...

I guess that with so much arguing recently in TOV, it got unnoticed, but here it was:

that's funny - I even participated in that thread but never went back far enough to see that the image had been posted.

yeah, ugh... I'm not a fan of the blocky, upright styling of the new C-class at all. That car got whacked all over with an ugly stick.

Just use your mental calculator to assume what you'd do, given structural changes are too expensive:

You'd square up the bootlid panel, creating more luggage room and teh appearance a larger ass. You'd square off the wings & lights to match. Just like Borgward did with the '59 Isabella.

You could change the roof panel, rear screen & rail, to a more TSX-like, shunkier design & get another 2cm of rear headroom, allowing you to move the rear seat back by sculpting it more.

We understand the raer door skins are unchanged.

So you'd start a bolder belt line down the front ones, continue it downward onto more broader front wings, with slightly more flared arches, to make the car look wider and with a more defined TSX/C4 family look.

You'd put on the origami headlamps and a higher, more pronounced grille, which woul help make the front look bigger & more squared off like the back.

Then you'd go down the pub & think about the 2010 model!

OK. Now I think the 09 pic is a fake. Looking at the POV and highlighting between both pics they appear to be identical. As if the 09 pic is a retouch/splice of the 08.

I doubt that the lighting, etc. could be such a perfect match!

Good call. You guys amaze me with your computer skills. I thought the shadowing was kind of the same, but only by eye.

All this splicing and gigewigs you guys figure out. Maybe I should pay to learn how to use computers, Hell I have 3 of them at home and they are all newer and powerful, and I use not even close to what they can do.

Looking closer still, do you see that the 08 reverse lights have been directly moved up to the top in the "09"?!

Yah, The top of the light is also level with the Horizontal body line and the deck lid is a little more boxed and raised.

Is it just me or the Accord's bumper doesnt match the rest of the body?? Seems like a snow-white as opposed to true white..
