Way too many to acknowledge in what are pretty normal cars around here. I'd imagine if I had an M there would be a certain amount of respect among other M owners.

It's nearly the only reason I ordered the lighting package, to get the LED turn signals. An expensive option no doubt. The LED headlights are nice though.

MB leases tend to be great on standard cars. If you want a E550, or particularly an ML550 (when it was available), they rob you. Even the new ML400 option is expensive. But the regular ML350, E350...

Very nice! I really like the individual colors. I wanted to get Citrin black, but the the extra time required for the build would have put me out too far.
