Purchased As Used
This is my second CLS but first with the performance package. What a blast to drive, how a 2 ton vehicle can move this well can only be a Mercedes product.
Great styling, interior comfort with the dynamic seats cannot compare to any previous vehicle. Purchased this off the lease as could not bear to give it back and as can be seen by the date of this review, I've got a bit of experience with this car. My only objection is that I sometimes need to carry 5 people, so the new one is an S63, but this is my go to car for everyday.
Last note is I'm actually getting over 20 mpg in the 500+ HP beast....read morehide

- Styling, power, elegance, trunk space.
- cupholders, navigation.
I've had my White 2008 CLS63 AMG since 7/24/2007. I still look forward to driving it every single day. I get depressed in the winter because I can not drive it. It is the best car I have ever owned. I still get complements all the time. I always have it in Sports Mode to get all the power and the full 507 ponies. Even when I am driving 70mph on the freeway and press on the gas, it lowers to 4th gear and takes off like no other car I've had. I wish they do not change the design, ever! I just do not know how they can make it look better and sexier.
The only problem I have, cupholders. Too small and misplaced. Large drinks get in the way when trying to shift gears. Now I order medium or small drinks. I will not let cupholder get in the way because this is truly my dream car. Overall, never had problems (knock on wood). I take care of it and it takes care of me. I can really say that Mercedes is the best car company out there. When driving my Mercedes, it makes me forget the whole world....read morehide

- Looks, finish, feel, the list can go on and on and on...
- cup holders misplaced.
Its time for the 4 month review of my '08 CLS63 AMG. It has been a pleasure to own. I had to keep it under 85mph for the first 1000mi. This is truley the best car I have ever owned. Keep in mind I owned an '06 CLS500, BMW 7Series, X5.... I do not see myself trading it ever. Well maybe if they never change the body style. But Mercedes shouldn't mess with this car for at least another 5 years. This beast just gets better with every mile. I have never looked back and regret buying it, even though I wasn't sure the difference between this AMG and CLS500. It is totally a different beast. It is a head turner wherever I go, and still get compliments all the time. When I press the sports button, it unleashes all those 507 ponies and sounds perfect. The only problem I have are the cupholders. To me, they are misplaced. They get in the way and are too high. But still, if all my problems were like this one, I'd be the happiest person on earth. Can't let cupholders get in the way of an AMG.
Again, I highly recommend this car, if you are willing to spend $100K+. I am still looking for someone to race. I am talking about someone with an AMG, not mustangs and the like.... The funniest thing, a guy in a hyundai tried to race me. I just laughed and made a right turn.
I can truley say that Mercedes is on another level and the rest are a distant 2nd....read morehide

- Above average engine, above average handling, above average luxury
- Way-too expensive
I must say, the CLS63 AMG is one of the best built luxury-performance vehicles to hit the streets. No other sedan has over 500 hp, more power than a Ferrari F430! And the 0-60 is just as incredible as the engine. Plus the CLS is the first four-door coupe in it's class! And the luxury is fine; anyone can fall in love with it!
The only problem I find with the CLS is it's pricd a little too high for any ordinary person to buy. And the you'll have a really hard time dealing with the insurance.
But not even the worst lows of the CLS can bring down it's trown as king of luxury performance cars! Everyone wishes they can have this sweetheart in their driveway!...read morehide

- Beautiful, Just Beautiful!!!
- Can't complain
10 days ago, I bought a gorgeous 2008 white CLS63 AMG. By the way, my trade in was a CLS500. The AMG is a total different beast. It is like no other car I have ever owned before. Its sexy, powerfull 507 hp. Step on the gas and its very satisfying. More satisfying than sex!
The seats are very comfortable. Never sat in the back. Never will because I want to be driving this baby all the time. This is my first AMG, and I absolutely love it. Forget all the M's from BMW. The CLS63 looks way better and has more ponies than an M5...read morehide
