        The 560 steering wheel does not look good at all. The FL 63 AMG is a different matter, though.

          What the....
          You're telling me that gorgeous AMG wheel is not standard on an S63?

          ^ @Yaz, the wheel shown is the normal AMG line wheel. Not that of an AMG S.

            But this should be standard on an S63:

              It's standard. MB marketing made the mistake of labeling a regular S with AMG sport as a S63.

              Within 2 years time that AMG steering wheel will be in nearly every (real) AMG, so it won't be special for long.

                Mercedes uk lists the output of the m256 engine as a summation of the ice and isg output.

                  MB is really loving their new interior combination. Most demos and press cars are configured this way. Looks great

                  Jury is still out on the standard front bumper. As of now, it's the only bumper I dislike. There's no style to it.

                      No time wasted by the parts reseller industry; it's still not on sale in most markets yet.

                      Once you put together the costs from the bumpers, lights, grills, mounts, shipping, labor and coding.... you might as well just trade for a FL.

                        MY2018 S-Classes are now on MBUSA.
                        Link: S-Class Sedan | Mercedes-Benz

                        MBUSA changes the standard 18-inch wheels every year for reason. Most have looked terrible; this new 18-in 5-spoke is an improvement.

                        A S-class with a 0-60mph time of 3.3-3.4 seconds still shocks me. Who would've thought?

                          How do these people get the parts so quickly?

                          Wait, wait, wait....wait......people are spending 10, 15k (?) on parts for their old car to make it look like something it isn't, creating a full blown fake?

                          Neat! That truly is Honda Civic level. Cool if you're an S class owner :rolleyes:

                            I would never do facelift on non facelift car. Pretty much any car, no matter how worth it is.

                              It's become a lucrative global business for these folks.

                              Usually they pose as a collision repair shop ordering replacement parts, but the facelift isn't even on the market yet... so I don't know how they're doing this. Best believe they're changing a big premium.

                              More than that actually, especially right now. Idiotic if you ask me and I see them on the streets way more than I should. Something is usually off with fitment or it's incomplete.

                              One time a shady used car dealership tried to sell a 2007 base S550(500) with 2013 S65 conversion bodykit for used S65 money. Found themselves in big trouble for VIN fraud, or something related.

                              This was back in 2014 or so, when early S550s were selling in the $30.000 or lower range and late model S65's were still above $100.000.

                                Looks like the sunburst wood trim is not longer available. That's a shame as it treaded the line of being dignified and having a lot character.

                                  The 0-60 time for the S560 4M is seriously underrated by MB (4.6sec). 4.0L TT, 463hp/516tq, 9speed, & AWD.
