Just got 2011 ML350

I wanted to get the new ML before the redesign comes. I just love the way W164 looks. This is my 3rd W164. I've had 06 and 08. This time I test drove the ML550 and loved the throaty V8 but it didn't feel all that much faster than V6 and I'm pretty sure my butt dyno is really off on that. Anyways last two ML's didn't have factory hitch. This one has factory hitch so I can tow stuff like bike racks and finally my Z.

So far I've tinted the front windows and added $50 ebay HID kit that were on my 08 ML. Enjoy!

Congrats KA8.
Man I would have selected a Pearl Diamond White if I didn't get the Grand Edition.
White with Beige interior is my favorite color.

The best color for ML is white ...I have black and it is very difficult to maintain clean ...On my previous car I had silver and that color could 'accept' any dirt, scratch without any problem ....

Next car is going be white

Enjoy your new car

Thanks! Black very nice but difficult to maintain. Our 08 was silver and I liked it but white is best of all.

Congrats on the new car. Quick question about the hids, is there a trick to get the stock bulbs out? I just purchase a ml350 yesterday.

Taking halogen bulb is easy. Just turn rotate slightly and it'll come off. It's putting in hid bulb that gets tricky. Gotta put it in upside down with hid bulbs. Congrats on your purchase! Let me know if you need help.

congrats........a new ride is such a good feeling....
I'd recommend (if I may) the MB sunshade, despite the cost, you'll like it better than
the one you have now.....picked one up for my car and it's awesome and durable as hell.....

take care and enjoy

and btw, I love the older Z's much better than the new style, I always thought they looked really good for their time,
and they still catch my eye to this day.....

Thanks! This Z is special to me. I think I'll order mb sunshades. Current one doesn't fit too well.
