RE: CLS Forum?

Probably not till an actual CLS owner requests it.

BTW - Frank isn't with us right now, I heard he is on vacation or something, maybe he'll do it when he gets back.

I saw a new CLS at the Pittsburgh International Airport on Wednesday. I could not believe it. It was a CLS 500. Are those out already? It had an oddly colored Illonis license plate, fyi.

Maybe ... my dealer has just sent me an invitation for the debut of the 2006 CLS (in the show room) in February. For places like Detroit and LA, it could be sooner.

RE: CLS Forum?

they have one at the local dealer here in palm beach had my hands on it took a real close look , and you know what, absolutely nothing special no more back seat room than my CL 500, and much cheaper looking when you see the car in person. I would buy an S or E class before this.

My dealer has CLS500 on display, Desert Silver with Nappa Leather. They expect the CLS55 to be here soon. I think the right choice of wheels will make that one bad ass lookin Merc.

I saw it at the Indianapolis dealership a week ago. I liked it much more than I thought I would and actually could see myself purchasing one. The car has great presence.

RE: CLS Forum?

[:(]I saw one and drove one today. The one I viewed had the matte wood; looked like a matte leather covering. The one I drove was silver with the light grey interior (window sticker $75,000+). Honestly it looked and felt cheap. Not as much get up as an E500 (the car is heavier) and the 7 speed was, as usual, searching for a gear. The back seat, once you get in without banging your head is not very roomy. The car certainly does have curb appeal. In my personal opinion the styling (especially the fat rear quarter and the crooked exiting exhaust tips)will tire as more and more are on the street. I'll keep my CL which I feel is much more distinctive and you know the rear seat will be cramped by its nature.
