    No John, wife is using my landcruiser at the moment, we are putting the CLK up for sale, i am in middle of removing the dashcam/stereo/reverse camera and AMG wheels, but we are still looking out for ML Class

    Regarding earlier comment on getting in an ML - has your wife tried one? I had a Honda Shuttle/Odyssey and thought it was terrific for access - I’m 5’ 8” and only had to lift my left leg and sit sideways then in. But swmbo is 5’ 0” and she really struggled with it although she was happy driving it.

    That's obviously a concern (if you're vertically-challenged), and worse if you fit the running boards/tubular steps to the sills. Guess how I know?
    I thought it would make entry/exit easier, but it made it MUCH worse.......just one more bit of metal to have to step over!

    Very good for washing the roof though....

    Same for me with both my ML's, I thought access would be easier for my elderly parents but it proved to be the opposite.
