You might like the alloys on this 650i maybe?. And, some other imports i came across while meandering which includes a sexy Hayabusa.

WOW! triple treat! The CLS is sweet (one of the best looking cars ever IMO) and hayabusa is well as cool as always

Never really liked the 6 series though... looks a little odd to me.

Wow nice pictures there, I like the alloys of both the 650i and the CLS. I think this is the first CLS I'm seeing with these alloys. Nice choice.
And the 650i does look a bit weird from that rear 3/4 angle.
Also heard of the M3 in the showroom . any pictures of that mate ?

Nice pics! Does the 650i still have the old iDrive? Also, what is that shiny thing beside the gear lever?

My neighbors (the famous sweet shop owners) have bought a spanking new white M Class. Saw it today so it must have come yesterday I guess. Currently running on TC plates so they must be waiting for their fave numbers to show up in the series. The wheels on that thing are HUGE. I think they are 19 inchers. Says 4Matic at the back. Is that Mercedes-speak for permanent AWD? This takes the total car count there to 12. Phew.

@gilead: i doubt the wheels would be 19s because i saw the car in the flesh and they were the same ones as mine,and mine are 18's, and yes 4matic is merc speak for permanent AWD.

Cool. They could be 18". I'll check tomorrow if I see it again. Is it a CDI? I didn't notice that as well.

I am just curious, isn't the Q7 a much better buy? It's bigger, meaner looking and probably better at high speed handling as well.
