Black Side Claddings




Hello All,
I occasionally browse AutoTrader for new GLEs when I found photos of this one. This is the first one Iíve seen with the option: D24 Black Side Claddings. Iím not fan, but someone in MB development must have thought it had some market.

Works better on the Macan - this comes off as Mercedes copying, albeit less successful on the larger, less sporty vehicle. I don't think they will find may takers.

Picked it up yesterday (see main thread). 7 miles so far, but after I wax it I'm going driving!

Pics from today

Went out on some rural hilly, twisty roads for a drive today. Perfect weather.

Your GLE looks gorgeous Greg!! Mount Hood is a great place to snowboard I heard even through the summer months. I am jealous now and cannot wait much for ours.

Greg, how do you like the Curve mode on those windy rural roads? Are you happy you got E-ABC at this point?

I will post comments tomorrow. Curve mode is nice, but it only works in the Comfort setting - what were they thinking? If it worked in Sport it would be perfect. Level 3 is fairly pronounced. Anyhow, I have no comparison, but handling is very good. And comfort is very good in Comfort mode.

Greg, what's the orange thing in your headlights? We don't have this in Europe.

That is the side reflector, required in the US & Canada front & rear - Mercedes has done a nice job integrating them into the light housings rather than sticking them on a fender as is often done. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards are laws that are implemented (issued) by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I just wish they made polar white with a metallic layer as the designo Diamond White metallic wasn't looking pure white at all, especially on an overcast day.

Each to their own, but yes, the side cladding is horrendously ugly.

On the Porsche Macan, those are known as "side blades". For a mere $600 bucks, you can have them painted the color of the car. Gosh, how nice of Porsche to do that.
