    Recently bought an S 500 in sky blue metallic exterior with cream leather and light coloured wood interior. In my opinion it makes a very attractive combination.

    What really surprised me about the car, though was how laid back the car is while pottering about in traffic but how responsive the engine and gearbox are when you prod the accelerator. Really impressive for such a large and heavy vehicle with so many toys.

    Congrats man. That is absolutely the most stunning color combo on the car. Well, it's on par with the dark navy with cream leather. A very nice departure from the typical black/white/silver that I see 10 of daily.

    Thanks guys. The car has a Brabus body kit and 20" wheels which seem a bit big for the whhel arches but I thought they looked great.

    Glad you liked it as much as I do. Now its a tough choice between the F-car and the S-car. My 6 year old and I like to take the F-car out whenever we can but the "missus" likes the S.
