Michael, I think it's a very beautiful car.  i've always liked the look of
my 200 - this one is better.

i like the rear screen, the front lights and the hood.

 i like the all red tail-lights as opposed to the yellow in the older
models. the rear is very muscular looking.

although to the layman most of the car looks like a 200/100 imo

most people who see this car say - why did you ever buy another 200 turbo
for. then i pop the hood and the drop their jaws.
