At the Dunkin' Donuts in Somerville yesterday I saw a brand new S class, either a 500 or a 550 - whichever it is, driven from Herb Chambers by an exec on a coffee run. My first sighting. Today, I got a fancy ad mailing from EuroMotorcars in Maryland (where I once bought a car, learning the hard way that they lie about their used cars) for that new S class. It was a velvet-covered box containing photos of the car on card stock with ad copy on the back. Nice photos, and a nice mailing package, but I'm not in the market, thanks.
My reaction to the car (outside only): too much Acura, and unpleasing lines. Maybe it'll grow on me. Click for larger on the photos.
