Couple things about Tesla...

I like EV's and would buy one in a heartbeat if it would look and be built better than the Tesla inside and out. Maybe the Mission E?

How is the car moving? Based on the pic, the engine is off and the car is standing. Start the engine and maybe then the engine light will go off ;)

Since I already decided on the S-Class, that decision is made for the next 2 years but to answer your question, absolutely!

I can't help it, but just about every G12 I see has poorly fitted leather seats. Not just the front seats, but also the rears. It's almost like all the fitting/stitching is outsourced to China.

The CT6 is much better looking than than the ATS/CTS/XTS but it's nowhere the G12 territory IMO.

I do not believe I have ever referred to 750 models in my posts; you'll find t's referring just to 2014/2015 US total sales (all models).
