turbolader, please blank out number plates before posting pictures

anyways, beautiful car and have been waiting for it for quite some time. The car looks very good and is one of my favorites for a big reason that it looks completely different from the standard Merc twin lights looks.

finally my fav merc is here. hey turbolader, was it a CLS55 or a CLS500. The color is quite boring. A silver/black would have looked stunning.

had seen this car on a website a few days ago. loved it. never expected it to be in india so soon. more pics

however the BMW 645ci Coupe is a better beast to have.

Hey guys,

I saw the silver CLS 500 on carter road (sunday night), passed by me too fast to get a good pic. It had 18 inch SL55 alloys
To be honest , i wasnt too impressed with the whole package though the headlight cluster looked extremely good ,the rest of the car didnt quite match up to it.

I guess my expectations were too high.

I got a few pics on my cell but they are not too clear.


Peace out.

Saw the same car as in the pic on sat night at Worli Sea Face.....looks damn sweet. Pretty londg too. Seems like MB after the success of the Maybach, will design most of its new cars around it. Good decision indeed. WIth BMW going the Bangle way how could MB stay far behind.

Cheers!!!

->P

Cool

its simply and undoubtedly the best looking Mercs on our roads
as compared to the millions of C,E and S class that we see
but ill agree with gamer the Bmw 645 is a much better looking baby

The CLS 500 confuses me a lot man,at some angles it looks small n some it looks long.Well this is surely my best looking Merc since a long time,especially the side view.Compared to the 545i,the CLS 500 surely seems to have the edge inspite of being a guess 10K more than the 545i.Not sure if i could say that the CLS 500 looks better than the 545i.
