An Un-Shiny Car by Mercedes Benz

We will tell you because it’s Mercedes Benz, even though we don’t really care. Mercedes Benz has just put out the CLS Grand Edition. The Grand Edition has a few updates and tweaks but nothing we go "oh wow" to. The biggest deal about this Benz seems to be the option of a platinum matte paint finish. The no shine finish will be scratch and dirt resistant, so we will see. When the paint job is what entices you to buy a car, you have bigger problems. Either way, the other exterior features sole to the CLS Grand Edition are  Bi-xenon headlamps with dark headlight castings, active headlights, a headlamp cleaning system, unique 18-inch AMG wheels and Grand Edition badging. If you have a CLS then consider the upgrade.

The inside features Alcantara headliner; aluminum sports pedals, wood trim, and ‘Grand Edition’ floor mats, oh my. If you, however, like your cars shiny then no worries, you can get another color in high gloss. Consider obsidian black, iridium silver, carneol red, or flint gray metallic paint colors. Prices for the Merceds Benz CLS Grand Edition start around $92,200 and orders will be filled starting in March 2009, as if we care.
