Oh yessssss! It has finally come in!
First of all the car is drop dead gorgeous. The deep red with the saddle/black interior looks awesome.
I can't tell you impressed I am after a couple of hundred miles. So smooth, solid and luxurious. The fit, finish & quality are truly impressive. I am I life long Lexus guy and I will point out the differences. This is my first German car. I was looking for luxury, power and good looks in a 4 door car. In my opinion, nothing looks better in that class than the MB CLS. I did not buy the 550 because I thought the 400 had more than enough power and I like a little more gas mileage. Also, the money I saved could go into equipment.
1. 2016 CLS 400
2. P1 & P2
3. Semi aniline leather
4. Distronic pkg
5. Park assist
6. Folding rear seats
7. Wheel package
8. Multi contour seats
$1015.00 per month 36 month 15,000 mile lease $3500.00 dn, with maintenance (real good deal)
Positives: Very well made, gorgeous interior and yes I do like the Ipad on the dash. It's nice and big and it's right in your face. The technology is excellent, especially the distronic package, It does work very well. Great handling and plenty of power. Spacious and super comfortable.
Negatives: I don't believe the music interface and the navigation is quite up to lexus in the way it works and performs. WHAT IS WITH THOSE STUPID DOOR LOCK PINS? I never liked the back tires larger than the front tires, rotation issues. It makes no sense to me.
Interesting point. Mercedes let my dealer order P1 without P2 and apparently with my other equipment P2 was required. Because it was an MB glitch, they pretty much ate the entire price of the P2 which made the cap cost under $76,000. It was a wonderful deal and a very nice dealership.
Overall, I am totally blown away with this car. It is a pleasure to get in it every day. Ordered it on Memorial day, arrived in port on 9/1, delivered 9/4. Loving it ever since.
