well I wouldnt go that far, to say Ive driven all the best luxury vehicles there are still endless cars I want to drive so very badly (but Im not alone with that wish). Okay, to the CL and the Bentley GT. Mercedes are great cars, personally I grew up idolizing them due to my family's ties to MB/dealerships, and I still think very highly of them. I love the CL, the ride is awesome, the car looks pretty good, I could use a little more power but there are vary few cars I couldnt use more power in, and finally the interior is very nice. The difference between the CL and Bentley GT, in my eyes, is the power CL has a V8 and V12, the Bentley has V12. The main difference is found inside each car. Bentley offers the best of the best inside, and MB lacks Bentley in the interior dept. Now I know MB has the CL600 and CL63 AMG, well these cars are going to compete in price with the Bentley GT. They will have about the same power, i think, but the interior still lacks. And when it all comes down to it, a Bentley is a Bentley and the name speaks for itself, no matter how nice a MB is it still isnt going to match up very well with a Bentley, at least to me.
The 7 and 6 series. I really liked the 7 series before the W221 S class came out. I liked it because of all the new ideas it presented, and in fact it caught MB's attention which is why they look so similar inside now. I still like the 7 series, but i would go with the MB S class because i like the interior better, I think the S class looks better than the 7 and I feel very comfortable in the S class. The 6 series, Im going to go on a limb and say I dont really like the 6 series. The car looks okay, but Ive always thought there was something missing. Maybe because it looks like a deformed CL, I dont know but I just dont really like it. Again, inside its very generic. I think it might be BMW's choice of color schemes inside that makes the car seem so "cold", I dont feel very comfortable inside. There is very little wood/carbon, the dash and center console look like 1 solid piece. And as far as the M6 goes, its still the same car just a larger engine. BMW does VERY LITTLE to the interior of their M cars, which I dont like. Pay that much extra and I know all of the performance goodies you get with the M cars but still I want some different interior options.
Audi, what can I say. I really like the RS Audi's, let me clarify that I really like the Euro. spec RS Audi's. The US spec cars are different, but the little differences make the car. Why would you take Porsche GT3 seats out? Why would you take the D style steering wheel out? I look at Audi's kinda the same way as the 6 series, there isnt enough separating the dash, console, doors, seats etc. They look like a leather ball exploded inside, it is all the same color, there is very little wood, very little extras.
Okay, the Cayenne. Ive got no idea. Ive never driven, ridden in, looked at or read anything about the Cayenne. Sorry I dont think it looks that bad, but Im not too excited about a Porsche SUV, something seems morally wrong about that whole concept.
Most luxurious from the top. Bentley GT, S/CL class Mercedes, 7 series, 6 series, Audi, and Ill put the Cayenne at the bottom because I dont know anything about it. Because these cars are all at different price points it is hard to compare them because you're not working with an equal amount of money. By the way, I work closely with the BMW dealership too which is why I can speak about the BMW series cars. So thats what I think, if anyone doesnt agree Im sorry, this is just me. I hope that helps you.

ok thanks,well i dont realy like bentley a lot,and i think S class is the chauffeur car, as well as the 7 series,bmw 6 series is old design for a long time now, audi not my type at the moment, but i seen the images of the A7 and the 4 door coupe looks super great,i think that only leave me with the for the current cars, with only cl class. which i think looks to good,and also i think the c class looks good,and what car do u own ????and do u know when the new clk class is coming,
Mar 25, 2007 (3:32 pm)
Well if you dont like the other cars, try the Aston Martin DB9. The Aston Martin is a great car.
Mar 25, 2007 (6:19 pm)

Mar 25, 2007 (6:34 pm)

Depends on the state you buy in. I got my car (2008 CL550) from NJ, and got it at invoice price. The car is stocked with the following packages (black and black interiors):
- AMG Package
- Premium II
- Distronic Plus
- Heated stearing
- Ipod integration
The MSRP for this package was $120,080; I got the car for $112,000. Had to pay NJ taxes on top of that price though .
#27 of 27 Quietly Superior: 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550

"People who buy premium cars with six-figure price tags tend to fall into two camps. One group wants models that are rolling temples to opulence, dripping with prestige you can spot from miles away. The other prefers cars that offer a more low-key, but no less accomplished, interpretation of luxury. For this latter group, there's the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550.
Mercedes-Benz handles luxury with relentless competence, and as one of the costlier models in its lineup, the CL550 is a poster child for luxury done right."
