    It's silver (obviously); he wanted a different interior, but wound up taking it in the ash... :)

    He knows i expect a ride VERY soon... :) His wife said she's positive i'll drive it at some point, but i won't bet on it... The car looks pretty nice... i'll have to go outside at some point and check it out in the day light...

    We took one on trade before I left for holidays.

    It's a great car....but the "airmatic" suspension, when in the sport mode, is worse than any modified ZO6 Corvette ever could be....downright horrible. I drove around in the regular mode all the time.

    It's a neat car with a nicer interior treatment than I expected given my impressions from the recent Benzs I have seen.

    Nice car. I took an E500 up to 160mph on the autobahn. That car really moves. Needless to say, much faster than my black box :) The keyless go is really cool as well.

    basically you don't need a key, right? There's this key card thing you keep in your pocket or wallet or whatever, and the car senses that you are inside and then you just push the button to start without ever having to insert or turn a key. Same with opening the door. The car knows it's you standing next to the car so it unlocks when you try to open the door, reading the card in your pocket.

    Yeah, it's an option, not standard. Have you ever seen the Top Gear in which they review the A8, Maybach, and Mercedes S600? If not, try to download it - I got my version from Kazaa. Clarkson talks about the option on the S600 segment. There is also a really funny section in which he tries to program the S600's phone but the computer can't understand what he's saying and keeps doing the wrong things.

    yup DES it's a pretty cool option they have i think the key has a transmitter that talks to the car when you're near and unlocks the door and when you sit in the drivers seat and touch the gearshift lever it starts the car for you.
