No 22's, then NO SALE for me...MBUSA are you listening?????

I would hope the AMG models have much more aggressive wheels than the style of the 22's shown by MBUSA on the 450!

This wheel was only available in Europe when I ordered our MY17 GLS and I really wanted them. Now I'm getting them on our GLE and wish I could have ordered the 22's. I guess by nature we always want what we can't have. We'll love these wheels when we see them for the first time.

On another note, I've never been fond of red SUV's but the GLE looks exceptional in Cardinal Red. I gave some thought of going with the red before finalizing our order. Red is my wife's favorite color.

Maybe an AMG 53 would look good in Cardinal Red

Was watching a youtube review by Autogefuhl that was conducted in Texas (reviewer noted car had a Michigan plate for some reason) in a red 450. I noticed that it had the wheels that are not offered on the DOG, but it also had the power 2nd row seating although it did not have the third row. In the DOG and Netstar, the power 2nd row is not a stand alone option; only available with 3rd row seating. Date of review was Nov. 20, 2018.

I am curious if the thought it that although probably not offered now as a stand alone (2nd row power seat), if it would be offered later. When I ordered my 2017 GLC43, vented seats weren't offered by the time my order locked. Then, within a week, it was released and offered as an option. My dealer kept the first order and allowed me to reorder with vented seats (it was a deal as I live in Dallas and wear dress shirts when conducting business). I would like the power 2nd row and would hate to order without, only to be available a short time later. Anyone know any details on this?

Apparently at least some of those vehicles were European spec. This option is available on the German website for a mere €1,200 (before VAT). I think there is a good chance additional options will be made available later, but if and when is anyone's guess.

Was at the delaership today and asked about the 22's for the 450...the GSM said there is no word on these at all but will speak with the MB rep on Monday to see if they will be strictly 53 only...so far I'm sad to say the 450 will not benefit from their beauty.

What’s your idea of far more aggresive?

It’s a matter of taste but IMO that first one is too “busy”. Unique & complicated but maybe simpler is not a bad thing.
