Looks great. Makes me think I should have gone with white instead of black on my ordered car!

The creases in the body panels create shadow lines that really bring out the white color. So many other white cars, e.g. the Cayenne, look like blobs that have no definition.

Like the black roof that seems to come with the panorama sunroof. I'm seriously considering white myself. How do you like the diesel driving characteristics, seeing as you own a BMW and sport bike? The IDEA of a diesel in this kind of vehicle appeals to me, but I usually drive an M3 with totally different power delivery. Guess I just need to try it.

i agree. New cayenne looks a japanese blob in white. I think the old cayenne look more porsche like. Interior wise though, that car is gorgeous.

Day-2:
The ride is fantastic....all the new features are amazing and I can see myself actually using them....
I am familiar with most of them as my 2006 FX45 had most of it back then.
Please note that the color is Metallic Diamond White and NOT White big difference in the look.
The interior is very Rich and you feel you are Driving an ultimate Luxury Vehicle.
The voice commands work well and will take a few weeks getting use to.
The AMG styling(standard for Canada) makes the ML350 stand out.
The Disel drive is fine with me as and has a lot of pep.
I have my motor bikes if I have a need for speed.
All in all "I like it"

do you have airmatic suspension? at 130kmh how many engine rpm? (about 80mph)

Did you mount the front license plate holder? Did you drill holes in the front bumper?

In Canada most of the provinces need to have the license plates mounted in the front and back bumper

Same here in Texas, did the dealer mount the plate? Can you see if they drilled holes in the bumper or used some type of double sided tape. I would rather not drill holes if I don't need to.

Does the plate mount require screws in the front of the bumper cover, or does it mount to the bottom of the crossbar?
