I was visiting relatives in Paramus, New Jersey and stopped by Prestige MB
where they had the new MY2007 S500 in the showroom. I saw it last Thursday
and they had just gotten it in the day before. They're only taking
The new S-class is so beautiful. Even the doors finally have the "brake"
feature that keeps those humongous doors open at any angle without slamming
into the car next to you. The door pulls/arm rests have a nice elegant feel
to them. All the control buttons have the stainless steel or chrome finish.
The ambient lighting which follows the wood trim is really very trippy. I'd
love to see it at night on a dark road.
The staff at Prestige were very nice that they did not watch over me and my
friend as we looked at the car. We had full access to it and I tried almost
all the switches, seats, controls, etc.
I can't wait until my current lease on the S430 MY2005 ends and look forward
to the new S-Class.
