Having had the car for nearly 3 months, I really love the serene waft and open airiness of the car - very light inside and a great car to drive. It's been a real tonic to the E55K and has seen my driving behaviour improve to levels of patience I don't think I've ever seen before. But for those who predicted I would get bored of the CL within a short space of time... I'm glad I didn't go for the Lexus LS460 although I was warned by a few and rightly so. I thought this was the direction I wanted but then again, we all make mistakes from time to time! I've no intention of modding the car as I am not really interested in doing that any more - at least to the extent of the last car. I don't mind the odd thing but anyway, I don't think that will solve the issue here... I am not looking for more speed at all - whilst the CL is clearly not far off the performance of a standard E55K, which is incredible for a 2050kg car, but there is just no hint of anything going on other than movement. Eh? - the car is just too good at being a luxury cruiser with a super-smooth ride but it just doesn't grab me by the knackers... no drama, no theatre, no performance, no noise!!! :headinhands: So I am contemplating going for a Granturismo because that has everything the CL is missing for me. Granturismos are not fast in the same league as my E55K was, just like the CL, so I know they will not tempt me to race anything! I'm not in any hurry and I need to sell the CL first although my director might be interested so will see.
