    A nicely done review. Love the bit where he has the brakes on fire after chasing a Porsche 911 :cool:

    both very nice cars. CLS perhaps more suitable for a family than the CL though

    please stop posting these things about the CLS shooting brake............the wife is worried i am about to re-mortgage the house, sell the kids and buy one!!! Of course she is right!

    It is truly a beautiful looking car.....regardless of what engine is in it!

    Oops so sorry, I guess it is unfortunate that some folk can look so old, way before their time

    I expect to see one as often as I see an R class. Four seats in such a large car means limited practicality for families.

    It is a 4 seater no matter what anyone says, the same as mine in the rear, there are many test calling it a 2 plus 2 so that driver was wrong, you cannot have a center seat with that storage box there

    The one I have seen only had 2 proper seats in the back. The third was no more than a leather in fill panel with a seat belt i.e. just enough to call it a 5 seater.
