This is the standart front bumper if this is what you mean by spoiler, the other one is included in the AMG exterior package. I chose this one first because of the high price of the AMG exterior in my country at least an because the AMG front bumper stays lower and changes the descend/climb angle unfavorably.
The interesting thing for me is I have the multicontour seats that cost a lot and still both headrests, driver and passenger, are manually raised and lowered, how is with yours?

Both front headrests are electric. Rear seat headrests are manual.
That spoiler/bumper is not even offered on the GLE here.

Obviously there are quite a lot of differences between Canadian and EU specifications of the GLE, who knows why. In Europe, the AMG exterior package includes the front spoiler/bumper you talk about, 20'' rims 5 spoke style/a couple of variations / and perforated front discs with AMG logo on the brake rotors. Here this costs about 3500 Euro, whyle my rims cost about 1300 Euro additional to the base ones, 2200 Euro for the different style front spoiler is too much from my point of view.

I hear you.
2200 for a slightly different look. Way to much!

Looks great and I love that blue! Enjoy it. I am averaging 8.8 L/100 km after 13,000 km of ownership. Zero problems. 1,072 km best tank range so far. Its a great vehicle.

I'm just in the beginning of the journey, so when I have more impressions I'll post. About fule consumption, still I have very random data, but overall compared to my previous vehicle, when the route/driving style is ecoomical, the GLE is also more or less similar. For instance, from yesterday, downhill slow curved road, about 60 kilometers, averaging about 5.5/100 with the X3 and about 6.3 with the GLE, in the same time short distance drives downtown in cold weather with heavy traffic, averaging 13-14/100 with the X3 and 20/100 ( I think that even if the fuel consumption is higher, it states 20?) with the GLE.
The vehicle is great, I agree !
