there is too much of that because there are too many squatting idiots in the left lane that have no business being there (not overtaking anyone). don't do that and the "overtaking from the right" is solved overnight.

It's not about the styling, it's all about the technology. I never liked Mercs but if I had 100k laying around I would buy this car.

Like they have said on top gear, if you want a car that will have all the bells and whistles that the average car will have in 10 years, buy an S class.

The Steering Assist feature is pretty insane, though more of a novelty than a useful option.

You'd be smarter picking up a used S500/550 once these new ones come out, as the bottom will fall out of the market, and you'll be able to pick them up for pennies on the dollar.
