    Hi All,

    I'm Sohail, I've just joined the forum and thought I'd say hello :)

    I'm hopefully going to be in a position to by my first Mercedes in a couple of months, so I'm just on here to research at the moment.

    I'm looking to get a W218 CLS 350 CDI AMG pre-facelift, spec wise I'm looking for options like heated memory seats, rear view camera a great bonus would be a sunroof and Harman Kardon system (although these seems to be rare).

    one query i had which i can't seem to find much info on is that the AMG models come with ride control, can anyone advise what this suspension setup is like? i believe its adjustable shocks & springs on the from and air suspension on the rear (this is all the info i could find on Google).

    I'm sure i will have many questions once I've started actually looking but until then I'll trawl through this forum to build up my knowledge.

    thanks :)

    Welcome :)

    It depends what AMG parts the car has - the AMG in this case could mean just a bodykit, or brakes, etc. It won't mean it's an AMG engine so not a 'true' AMG. If it has AMG ride control fitted it's a button in the car which allows you to select modes like Comfort, Sport, etc and adjusts the ride accordingly.

    Thanks all :)

    @germghost i think i've just read to much in to this illusive ride control, i know the Airmatic option gives you the extra button towards the right of the command knob, i know the AMG CDI's are just equipped with the bodykit etc and not that "true" AMG engine like in the CLS 63, thanks for your input anyway :)

    I really need to get out and test drive some to see what the factory non Airmatic setup is like.

    Doesn't mean it doesn't have AMG ride control, just depends which AMG features it has. It's easily spotted, it's a button on the centre console with a picture of a spring/strut on it :)

    Well I've just put a deposit down on a W218 CLS 350 CDI! wasn't supposed to buy one for another couple of months but this one was too good to pass up lol it has the below spec

    Heated memory seats
    Harman Kardon
    Airmatic (I've not seen this on many/any other w218's that are for sale)
    Sunroof
    Memory pack
    Split fold rear seats

    Hopefully pick it up on Saturday then drive it 200 miles back home :) some pics below
