    I've sent you a PM. There's nothing like that first few days in a new car, taking it home and learning all the toys.

    I followed a lovely W211 E55 AMG on the way home from work tonight, that did look lovely. I didn't even get a nod or wave from the driver!

    Stunning motor, a very cool car :cool:

    How's that Keyless Go? A very nifty feature, I've never seen it in the flesh though.

    Nice one akmal :D

    thanks a lot guys.....your comments appreciated.

    thanks for posting my pics Richard:rock:

    well, the 4 way climate control is really good....today, when i was sitting at the back, i put one side on 25 degress and the other on 20 and thats exactly what it felt like. a great feature! also the driver or passenger can change the rear temp. via the front controls, which i thought was good :)

    keyless go is great. just leave the keys in your pocket and dont even think about them.....:) the way u start the car is sooooo good :D before we got the car, i thought you would have to keep the start button pressed until the car doesnt actaully start. but what you do is, keep your foor on the brake and just simply press the start button and a second later the car automatically starts up. love it!:D

    lolz abt the 'yellow' lamps :p I am thinking of getting them changed.....hopefully soon.....:)

    thanks,
    AkMaL

    (why cant i reply in the the pic gallery thread?:confused: :confused: ):rock:

    Only MOD's can reply in gallery threads. You may notice some older gallery posts do have replies in them, they were posted before the change in forum software, I believe.
