Cheers Hoops. I look forward to catching up soon.

Doughboy, sounds like the colour hey've got is Luxor Beige or Ipanema Sand. I agree that the DRL are whacky, in fact I haven't understood the headlamps!

Busy with work, I think I will collect it towards month end.

Hoops - I'm was not sure about the wheels either. Also buying winter tyres was of the factors I considered when these were specified. Now the mud flaps and electric side steps are fitted, the package looks significantly better. The side steps are now much nicer because they stow away in line with the sill and end caps match. I will have to take some photos during day light when I can.

It feels like a significantly different vehicle to drive. The steering wheel is nicely weighted and it rides like a S class. It's also much much better insulted. There is leather everywhere. Even the blinds up front are covered in what feels like alcantara. Along with these, it has rather nice rolling blinds in the headlining which reminded panoramic roof is a standard fit item on the Autobiography.

The inevitable has happened... squeaks, creaks and bangs! It is been in for warranty work, they blamed the spare wheel being loose. I assume they didn't tighten it properly after removing the wheel to run wires for installing electric side steps.

Personally feel as though you've taken down your pants spending this much on that car - Palmnut's SLS cost the same money!

I love the brand, but jesus that's alot of wedge for a grey barge!!!!

Sorry

I think as it is in Russia and used for business, it is suitable.

Thought I'd seen it all until I saw one in Luxor with spinning rims, hell yeah! Their design was very similar to the factory fitted 22" turbine blade design.
