Its actually a bit too fast for delhi roads! because of the crazy pick up, i've busted my airmatic shockers hitting potttttttt holes at high speed. So it might be better to go for the standard option. As for a driver driving a cls and sitting in the back... haha! but i often sit in the passenger seat while being driven.
with you the CLS 350 is the same price as an S 320. the CLS 500 is for 1 somthing. i would rather go in for an S class unless ofcourse the cls was an AMG.
the CLS is designed for the driver and the front seat not at all for the rear.
there was a siver CLS 500 at the petrol pump at vasant vihar with nice wheels. that car has suspension issues, was that your car liv2drv?

the silver cls was a 320 cdi. and the greyish-blue one there was a 500. both are ours. There were no issues on either. but i did hit a pot hole at high (HIGH) speed. i did mess up one of my shockers. thats when the car was parked there for a bit while the part came in. I buy most of my cars from the person who is at the V.V petrol pump. Anyone who wants to buy any car... you should meet up with him.

when your car was standing waiting for the shocker to come is when i saw it cause i was told it has come for work by the people there.
i did meet the guy for the hummer H3 but i felt he is a bit over priced. dont know what your take is on this? it would make more sense if i brought the car down myself.

I think the mother of all CLS's has finally arrived in Bombay ! The CLS63 ///AMG

I saw it parked next to shatrang tonight, i am only 99% sure since i could not see the rear of the car to spot the badge. But it had the AMG bumper and the optional 9000$ AMG wheels which are optional only on the CLS63.Was a new dark-greyish color.
