    No! I just bought my dream car. Shooting Brake with 4.7tt V8. But not many petrols around that aren't AMG hotrods.

    Now that's nice. Toppy price but then it's barely run in (2.5k miles a year...?)

    I thought I was low mileage

    I agree about the white, but even adding on the cost of a wrap or respray it looks like a good buy!

    I think they look quite dated to the facelift model that replaced it. The facelift model with the multispoke alloys I feel is one of the nicest Mercedes to be produced.

    I disagree. The Audi-esque DRLs on the facelift look chavvy, as if they bought an aftermarket part which was too long, so had to bend it to make it fit. On the inside the pre-facelift has a Comand screen which looks like a planned integral part of the dash, as opposed to the afterthought imitation iPad of the later model.

    But then, I may be biased!

    So you may, but I agree 100%. I can't stand the 'stuck-on iPad' look either.

    That one
    Love the facelift CLS ^^ - made the pre-facelift look ungainly and makes the new CLS look just wrong; there’s one in our car park and Mercedes have managed to make both the front AND back end dreadful.

    The iPad thing is obviously a marmite thing but it wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.

    I mprefer the pre-facelift; one of the best-looking cars MB has ever made. Colour seems to make a big difference to the looks of the CLS, though, more than most cars. I'm not a fan of white cars, but the white CLS in post 13 looks pretty good.

    Mind you, just think how stunning it would be in Tanzanite Blue....

    I'm not sure Hyacinth Red would suit the CLS; I'd have to see one in the metal. Cavansite Blue, yes.

    Totally with you on this. What were Mercedes thinking of when designing the new CLS to replace the former. The former in my opinion is one of the most beautiful looking Mercedes cars to date. I will look to buy one for sure when prices start to come down.

    The new CLS is one ugly looking car...
