    I think the white leather, is going to be a bitch to live with.

    I really like the CLS and E63, but the leather choices baffles me. Why is it they don't offer caramel/saddle leather as a stock option, but you can get grey. :confused:

    Gray interiors are so drab. Awful choice but apparently very popular. I have been shopping for a used 911 cabrio and cant believe how many of them have that gray on gray.

    The car in general is nice but the base model needs Designo interior to be extra nice. The 600/65/63 have great interiors. My main complaint about the car is that only long wheel base is available in the US.

    True what JayJay said, regular interior is cheap and feels like an ordinary car not $90,000+... But I do dig the exterior styling.

    MB Tex on the dash is the interior's worst offense.

    Exactly, I am surprise they did not cheap out and put MB-Tex on the seats or did they? Its been a while since I been in a standard S-Class... They really should have leather just about everywhere standard...

    The seats, armrests, and a few other pieces are leather, but not Nappa or what MB calls its premium leather. Premium leather is an option for the seats only, and thus isn't sufficient for fully upgrading the interior.

    The leather in standard and premium leather Mercs is not the greatest quality, unless Designo (At least my friends CL63 the leather seems to be of high quality). I have not been a in a new Jag, but they use to have really nice quality leather... It's a shame, buying leather hides in bulk is not that expensive... I don't feel the quality in a Mercedes compared to other brands, unlike in the 60-70's comparing with other cars of the era.

    I can't fit into a CLS. Where do you put your left arm? The window opening is too high and the ceiling is too low. Meh on the whole Coupe like sedan type. Get a proper sedan or a sports car.

    I drove my stepfather's VW CC 2.0T M6 once, that's a nice car for under $30,000... It also looks far better then a CLS.

    Possibly the sexiest designed car ever. Neighbor has one. Only ever seen one other at a local dealer.
