Not my cup of tea, but definitely classy. It's just uncommon to see they type of materials in the car as everyone is tuned to having wood panels in a car.

Enjoy your car!
Given that you didn't have your car for your first month of ownership it would be reasonable to have them pay you for that one month car payment as well.
You ask for that. I had...

Parking Assist - Damaging wheels!

Seems like a safer option. The MB feels a little too risky. It also drives out of the parking spot automatically.

I ended up not using it again partly because I like parking the car myself and...

Boy, feels like flashback to 2002. When we got our MB SL55 it came with a keycard even flatter than that. More like a building key card.

I loved that thing. Put it in my wallet and ever needed a...

Hmm. Good info & smart move on the trade. So maybe it's going to be the S-Class Coupe or a used SLS; it uses a Getrag transmission...or maybe an M6. have you driven the current one for comparison?

I had the Goodyear run flats and changed to Conti DWS. I didn't try a 3rd brand of tire but your situation nearly mirrors mine.

Ambient Lights

The new ML only has 3 ambient colors, the S-Class has 7 choices.

Unlike BMW, the S Class light intensity can be dialed up to the point where you can't tell anymore which color leather you have.

Interesting. Our 2012 didn't even come with First Aid Kit (confirmed by BMW) and we ended up buying the BMW one. That one has band aids (Nexcare)
