2008 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
We just picked up my CLS550 at the factory in Stuttgart. What a moving experience. I cried as they drove this incredible vehicle into the delivery area. No other MB looked as classy. After reading reviews on Edmunds.com, we did the European Delivery Plan. This saved us 7% percent and we had a chance to drive it on the Autobahn for 2 weeks.(Must keep speed under 100mph for first 1,000 miles.) This car is amazing and beautiful. Everywhere we drove, people complimented us on it. The European version, CLS350 sells for about the same price in Europe, as the CLS550 in the U.S. It's well worth waiting 8-10 weeks for delivery in Dallas. I'll probably cry all over again.
Distronic and Parktronic are well worth the money. We never used a map while in Europe..just the navigation. Another great package.
Storage area on doors is awkward to reach...small price to pay for this dream car.
