This is a great car! Styling is beautiful and the performance is outstanding. I had an '03 Viper prior and this car is very close in performance and much better in size, comfort, and driveability. This is the best 4 door I've owned.
The engine! One bad boy!
Rear seat room is tight, but who really cares about the passenger anyway?
The car is unbelievable. I have driven Aston Martins, Porsches and many other sports cars before this one and this is second to none of them. The trunk is large for golf clubs and luggage so you can actually drive this car out of town, what a novel idea. The power is tremendous and the CLS handles very well compared to all the other mercedes available.
Distronic, parktronic, keyless go
Trim on the inside of the doors. That is the only boring thing about the car. Maybe a heated steering wheel. Lighter needs to be out of the ashtray for cell phones and it needs to work when the car is not on.
But also the priciest. I got the AMG package with the SL65 wheels and design package. Piano black interior dash with white seats. I paid a pretty penny for this car, but love it. For the money, I could have gotten a S550 with AMG package/ panoramic roof, but this car is more exclusive and so much prettier. perhaps I should have opted for the IWC version.
Neck cracking looks, power and interior with piano black dash. keyless go, upgraded stereo system, large trunk. ride is adjustable at sport mode giving more road feel.
Panoramic roof (will not happen); gas mileage 9mpg city; navi(can they use a 3D interface with a larger screen with your choice of male or female voices???); retractable side mirrors for tight garages; bluetooth is archiac, the japanese cars can use any phone with bluetooth without a cradle.
Mercedes hit a bulls eye with this car. It is a user-friendly "bad boy" It's fun to drive an never lets you forget that you are in an amazing blend of raw power and forgiving, state of the art engineering.
Power and Performance ... almost forgot to mention that it is one of the most beauriful cars on the read today.
Learn from the Japanese! Dont deliver a six figure car with nickel and dime up-charges for luxury items that should be a logical default. For example mine was delivered with a 1-cd stereo ... Dealer says that it cant be changed. Command controls are clusy and the NAV system is wiimpy at best
