I HAD THIS CAR FOR 6 MONTHS BEFORE
TURNING IT IN FOR AN S600. THE S55 WAS
A BLAST TO DRIVE, BUT IT WAS A BIT TO
SPORTY FOR SUCH A LARGE SEDAN. IF YOU
HIT THE GAS FROM A STOP, A LOT OF TIMES
IT WOULD BUCK, AND THE SHIFTING WAS NOT
NEARLY AS SMOOTH AS I FELT IT SHOULD
HAVE BEEN. JUST A PERSONAL OPINION.
THE S600 IS AMAZING! IT APPEARS TO
HAVE MORE POWER,( 2 TURBOS) SMOOTHER
SHIFTING, AND EVERY TOY THAT MB MAKES.
SUEDE HEADLINER, PHONE, 4 SEAT
HEAT/AC/POWER, WOODPKG, KEYLESS GO,
VOICE COMMAND...ALL STANDARD. IF YOU
CAN SPEND THE EXTRA $20K, GO FOR THE
STERRING WHEEL SHIFT BUTTONS.
WORK ON THE SHIFTING. IT IS TO ROUGH
FOR A LUXURY SEDAN. IT COULD ALSO BE A
BIT BETTER INSULATED.
