My first Benz

I have been a hardcore BMW fan for several years. I was in the market to replace my X5. As usual I started at BMW dealership. Was set to buy the new 2011 550i. Plan was to order it over the weekend. Thursday night I was driving by the Benz dealership and started thinking....if I am going to spend $80K + ... maybe I should check out some other cars also. Drove the CLS550 and loved it so much that I made the deal on the spot. Traded in my X5 and drove the CLS550 home. Talk about being spontaneous.

Welcome, and congrats on the new Mercedes. In my opinion, the CLS is by far the most beautiful sedan on the market.

Congrats! I really like that color!

and by higher end? you mean like, an S? or a CL?

"for what it is" the CLS550 is one hell of a car!

I test drove a CLS, and because I did not have a view of the hood from the driving position, I decided against it...still it is a very beautiful car.

Thanks guys! I am loving it. Thought I would share this story with everyone.. Over the lunch, I went to the dealership to drop some papers off ...got pulled over for doing 75 in 55 zone. I was NOT trying to speed! just didn't realize, I was doing 75. Anyway, trooper (female and good looking) came to the car and first thing she said "let me guess... this is a new car and that's why you are speeding". I just smiled. She checked my papers and said "its a very nice car ... just don't speed OK?" She let me go!!!
