Actually it looks like a longwheelbase 7. Those cars actually have the same number of gadgets and gizmos in the back seat. There a seperate screen between the front seats, theres an iDrive to control, entertainment, climate etc, the seats have all the multifunctions. And these cars are meant to be chauffer driven. Its not like getting chauffered in an M5 or any GT.

"4matic" is the name for the four wheel drive system developed and used by Mercedes. this electronic system automatically engages four wheel drive to provide additional traction in slippery conditions.

Nice this is the first ML 350 i have heard off i was told of only the 320cdi being brought in by Mercedes.

Saw a navy blue BMW M3 on Sunday near The Park hotel.

Was being driven by a mechanic and the owner (I guess) was sitting beside.

Had a nice throaty exhaust note and was maintained fairly well. The left ORVM however was missing the mirror although the casing was intact. Looks like someone had ripped it off.

This was not the new M3 but the old model.
