    Hi Folks

    Just joined the forum as I'm picking up a CL500 on Friday.:p

    It's an old one, but a lovely car.....has 84k miles and full MB service history. Very nice condition inside and out and drives beautifully

    I must confess, I am a "Jag man" really, but have always admired the CL. I have a 2005 XJR and an 89 XJS v12, but really wanted a change.

    I was most impressed by the Engineering of the CL. A lot of thought has gone into every detail. I love my XJR, but some of the finishing is more Ford than what you would expect from Jaguar. Time will tell of course, but Im really looking forward to MB ownership.

    Hello and welcome to the Forum. What a super choice of car - and such a modest mileage.

    Some pictures would be nice please.

    Hello and welcome to the forum, I have just bought the model before yours, and Colin from MBS is putting a few things straight for me.

    You are lucky living where you do as Colin and Dave really are super people for anything MB

    Stunning car, the 500 is super smooth and relatively economical taking into account the substantial weight of the car too. Enjoy

    Looks nice....i hope you have much fun...

    Took my CL out in the snow yesterday, it was great, i think due to its weight!

    The CL's are the bargain of the century at the moment, after looking at lots of others cars (XJR's, M5, S8,etc) i have decided my next car can only be an upgrade to a late CL55 (W215) as they are very, very hard to better at the money they are changing hands for.....particulary if you only do low miles per annum!
