That comment might go down like a lead balloon on this forum right now but some of the styling ( eg. AMG or Lorinser) upgrades definately add to the excitement of this amazing car. If these were factory standards, MB would sell more CLS's.HectorSuarezCLS said:The factory CLS is eye catching enough, it is a shame some owners want to tarnish the look with classless "upgrades" and customization
A few years back, I spent a couple of weeks at the Ritz Carlton Hotel at Laguna Beach LA.320CLSman said:yup sure will , been to L.A before and what can i say, the hot cars are absolutely everywhere. Renting a Cadillac Escalade or ?? and going to Palm Desert, Las Vegas, San Diego so should also be a nice drive also.

Being an Englishman, I didn't realise that cars were so important in LA and my co director had hired me a small ford compact to drive down to Laguna. This was my first hard lesson..
When I arrived at the hotel front entrance to check in, they were convinced that I was either a rogue kitchen porter or a complete nutter. Anyway, apparently nobody in their right mind would have asked for valet parking in such a vehicle!!.
However, the two best places to see the world's most beautiful cars are California and Dubai. It'a a real experience just to day-dream at the sight of some of those high spec machines.
Have a great US trip 320clsman. God bless America for it's interest in cars and can anybody there ask President Bush to tell Mr Tony Blair to build some decent roads in the UK.
