Looks really hot. How is the power compared to your Cayenne?

The suede leather looks really good, is it optional? What other packages hv you got?
I'm not sure about all the packages. It does have sports seats with alcantra inserts and the sports trim on the inside. Will check the list again.

Drives great. Very very smooth, silent & torquey. Almost like an s class 4X4. ( Has the same drive by wire and engine from the s320 cdi. So have three of the same engines and transmissions now haha)

Well The ML is very silent and doesnt give you the sporty feeling like the cayenne. You sit in the cayenne and you know you're in a porsche, The materials, quality etc. and then you have the handling , the sound and the rock solid stable ride. They're pretty different cars, and IMO, Porsche makes the better SUV. Thought the ML is good in its own territory and is a pretty comfortable diesel SUV.

Congrats on your new set of wheels. It looks fabulous in the black color. A perfect match for your black Cayenne.

Mercedes have finally made the ML worthy of its name and heritage. I owned a 2002 (W163 series, I think) and that was not up to the Merc standards. But with the current generation one, they have made amends.

BTW, didn't you get the rear door mounted spare? It might have made the car look even better, IMHO.

Enjoy your drive!

Awesome choice for a city cruiser. Had the pleasure of driving the same in London, absolutely love the torque. Congrats!

Decent choice mate. I personally wouldn't have purchased one, but to each his own. Happy driving

How come you went and got the old ML and not the new facelifted one which I think looks much better or is this an old car which you had and just posting pics now?

Brother V10, Kudos to your taste in cars. The thing which i like about you is that all the cars in your stable are very gentlemen kind of cars, though some are very powerful but still they have a sober touch to them, and are kept amazingly very well despite of being driven in delhi traffic. I see a vintage model also, that too looks very neat in the picture.

Me too have the same doubt, why did you went for pre face-lifted when the face-lifted is here! Anyway congrats for the new machine, infact there is only cosmetic changes for the facelifted!
