^ thx! I went through quite a range before settling on this one.

got a few shots from the ad and after I got it this last weekend.
my initial driving impressions - very smooth and quiet, comfortable as hell. amazing sound system. very benz-ish. powerband above 60mph on the highway is surprising, it moves considering it's weight. mpg is great, esp on the highway avg. 28mpg. of course not great in the handling dept, has it's share of body roll. the tech features are cool, first car with navi.

tint and ipod integ to come, possibly sway kit. planning to keep it relatively stock.

Nice Car. Does it have the Mark Levinson Package? The sub goes out on them pretty frequently so prepare to replace it .

I had the Mark Lev Nav System and added a JL 500.1 and 12w6v2 with an inline line level volume control and it sounded fantastic.

I also did a JL 250.1 and 10w3 when I wanted to save space.

I could swap them out in 5 mins.

Completely changed the audio.

Just a thought.

just curious (judging on above pics) what percentage tint you guys would go with. i'm not 18 and hope to avoid cops as much possible. thinking 35 on the sides and 20 on rear.

35 all around.

I'd even consider a bit lighter if possible. Anything darker, especially on a black car, is going to look juvenile.
