ML400cdi and SL55amg
New S65 Italy

This is my new cruiser.
Color (cod 041) green graphit designo, interiors black.
All the optionals except (pano roof, voice control and active parktronic).
Funny optionals: rear phone, refrigerator and skysac.
Had a little problem (as for my previous S420cdi) with dynamic seat (driver seat doesn't work dynamic and massage function) solve in 3 days
For the next 500 km I'll try to keep my speed istinct (now I'm at 1.000 km usage) and then ....
Bye

Nothing more attractive to me than a debadged automobile!

Regarding the exhaust tips....Are they connected in some way? As oppossed to two seperate tips on each side. Maybe they are all like that now, but I for one never noticed.

because we all know that if you had not debadged, it would not look nearly as good as it does know, that badge can ruin a car quick on this forum and in some peoples minds......great looking car though, with or without the dreaded badge.

Was merely bringing up the fact that he debadged, which is a pretty popular option to do in Europe and also makes it a sleeper to the unknowing. Nothing related to the REbadging you're hinting at.

Also me, first time I think "it's like titanium grey of my previous porsche cayenne turbo" but, sometimes, with not too much light, you can see some green shadow (you have the same possibilities to see a double eclipse moon/sun)

Maybe I write something wrong.
Skisac is the case you fit in the middle of rear seat to carry 4 pair of ski.

Sorry

If you look to a ML63 AMG and a S63 AMG You notice that the exhaust are separated (I'll download the picture from http://www.mercedes-amg.com).
For S65 (as you can see in the picture attached take in Affalterbach last year during the S65 test drive or in my car's picture) the exhaust are not separated on each side.
This, and the larger front disk dimensions (390 mm vs 360 mm) are surely the notable exterior difference between a 65 and a 63.
Even if You debadged the car

The skisack and rear refrigerator use a special "U"-shaped petrol tank. At least they did in the W220. Do you have less fuel capacity when you have the skisack option?

Congratulations!

Please could you take clearer pictures? Graphite Green is a great color which should be shown to stunning effect!

Sorry for the picture (the size of the picture you can upload on the site is too low , original pictures size is more than 2 mb) but the problem is that Graphite Green is a "medium" gray (it's not easy to see the "green" part).
