Hello from South Carolina...

Just purchased a 2010 CLS 550. Sold my Jaguar XKR convertible and I am surprised that I don't miss it. This CLS is an amazing automobile - perfect fit and finish, superb acceleration, and excellent handling in the twisties.

Had a BMW 650i prior to the Jag, and the CLS is an excellent combination of both cars (sans the droptop). Wonderful steering feel/response; feels like this car was carved out of a big chunk of granite - no road noise, and such a solid feel.

COMAND system is newer version - iPod, iPhone, etc. integrate seamlessly, with steering wheel controls for the iPod - nice touch. Enjoy the ability to watch DVD's while parked (which is not very often). LED's are a nice touch, and the AMG appearance package adds a nice finish.

Outstanding exterior (diamond white) and all of the electronic goodies that the Japanese automakers have had for years. In a nutshell, this car is a blast to drive and as wifey says "It feels so solid and safe"...
