Congrats on your new CLS. A spectacular car, and I'm glad to have the V6 option now.
As Ike says, Mercedes (as well as other German MFRs) will absolutely drill you on option costs. It's one way they can pretend their base MSRPs are remotely competitive.
I'm surprised COMAND nav isn't in the P1 package, but as a minor aside I'll note that the unit accepts DVD audio discs which--if loaded with MP3s--can probably contain your entire music library in just two or three discs. Granted as you say most of us don't listen to discs anymore but I like having them available for when I want to hear something particular.
Given that Nav is in P2 rather than P1 I'd say it's P1 that's more overpriced. FWIW!
