#4 of 52 CLS 550 Diamond White
Jul 16, 2008 (10:56 am)
I just ordered a new 2008 CLS 550 Diamond White edition and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I saw my first CLS - the CLS500 - in Las Vegas several years ago, and was in awe with that style. I had never heard of that series, so I had to copy the model down, go back to the hotel and imediately look it up. Ever since that day, that has been the car of desire. I know many Mercedes lovers do not like the profile lines - it was that view that hit me the most. What a magnificient car. This Diamond White color combination really makes the car. So many are black, which is great if you live where you never have to worry about keeping that color absolutely spot free. I don't, besides black absorbs heat from the sun light more so than any other color. I can't wait!

Congrats how long will it take until it arrives. Can we expect a review here when you get the car?

I had an email last night from the dealership and they plan to ship it to me today. I expect the truck here sometime around noon or so. I will keep you informed...

Last night at about 4:15 PM, our new Mercedes arrived. It was everything I had expected and more. You must understand, last Friday was the first time I had ever driven a Mercedes. We drove a CLS500 (the local dealer did not have any 550s) to see what it drove like. I have never seen a more complete automobile manual - 473 pages! We had it out on the Interstate last night and put about 30 miles on it. Passing a truck going 65 was as though he was parked along the road. I haven't had much time to do much as yet, but will have time in the coming weeks. I will keep you informed. I would imagine most of the folks that read or post here are long time Mercedes owners and probably have had numerous models over the years. This is my first Mercedes, so everything I discover about what this car has is a totally new experience for me. It kind of reminds me of visiting Minneapolis with a couple that had never been out of the state of Iowa and how impressed they were with every facet of that city - like buildings that were taller than that couple's barn, for example. I feel like I am sure that couple did then.

Hello, First of all Congratulations on getting your CLS, and secondly sorry for late in reply, I haven't been in Merc thread lately.
Thier hasn't been much CLS reviews here, No I am not a Merc owner, But all of my family including my dad uncle auntie has owned several benz in the past and still do, which are all S class.
Since its been over 2 months having your CLS, any experiences, likes,dislikes?
Btw, I have also test driven the bmw X6 inline 6 amazing car, I prefer suvs over sedan, So my next car will probably be an suv,
I do not like Merc suvs, The only benz I prefer are the S ,CLS,and the CL.

Also Hello, First of all Congratulations on getting your CLS. I am new to this forum. I am also thinking about buying a cls, but not until next year. I have driven an E class in Germany a few years ago, and doing 126mph on the auto bahn is something I will never forget. I've been driving a Eldorado for the last 5 years which is front wheel drive and since I live north of chicago I was wondering how the CLS would handle in the snow because it's rear wheel drive. Since it's a Mercedes I'm sure it will be just fine. Does anyone have thoughts about that and of course the dependability . FYI on TOP GEAR on the BBC channel, they have been replaying it so see if you can catch it. They loved the CLS 63amg. The dependability also came up....

Have had my 2009 about a month now and think it's a great automobile. Tons of power, smooth ride, quiet, good highway mpg, not so good city but not bad for this much power.
