The future is here - self-driving cars. No longer just restricted to Google and a few other manufacturers, you can actually BUY one! Granted, this one's crippled by DOT/NHTSA's archaic rules dating back to 1963, but even with those limitations it's amazing. I actually look forward to traffic jams - even more time to sit back and enjoy this wonderful machine while the car accelerates, brakes, steers, and fights off tailgaters all at once. Yes, it actually will start slowing down / increasing following distance from the car in front of you if some jerk starts tailgating you. Likewise, if some idiot cuts you off, it'll respond all by itself and swerve/brake/avoid hitting them. But wait, there's still the rest of the car! So it drives for you, great! This just gives you more time to soak in the real wood paneling, over-engineering, attention to detail, fine sculpted lines, slick interior lighting, etc. Or maybe you'd prefer to listen (and watch!) A nice live concert on the dash from the built-in DVD player and enjoy the car's full surround sound system. While getting the back massage. In 10+ miles of stop-and-go traffic. While everyone else around you is miserable. And you've got a big grin on your face because your car's driving and you're snuggling up in the Brookstone-like massage chair driver's seat.

The car (by itself) has saved me from 3 accidents so far over the past 15, 000 miles. If I was in an ordinary car for any of these, I'd likely have been involved in a collision if not in an ambulance/hospital. The first one was when I was driving on a major road and some old lady didn't stop on one of the cross streets. My Mercedes saw it, stood on the brakes by itself, and the collision was ...

The car (by itself) has saved me from 3 accidents so far over the past 15, 000 miles. If I was in an ordinary car for any of these, I'd likely have been involved in a collision if not in an ambulance/hospital. The first one was when I was driving on a major road and some old lady didn't stop on one of the cross streets. My Mercedes saw it, stood on the brakes by itself, and the collision was avoided. I was a bit shaken by it, but that was all. The second time was driving at night and a deer ran out in front of the car. We definitely made eye contact, but the car didn't make contact with the deer. Instead it stood on the brakes and swerved around the deer. The third time was when I was coming to a stop behind a line of traffic at a red light. I was almost stopped but the guy behind me was still going full throttle. My car served into the turn lane to my right and hit the gas. The guy behind me creamed the minivan that was in front of me. The car still amazes me. I hope I'm never in a collision, but if I am it's currently the safest car on the road today.

Self-driving... Other manufacturers claim they have products like this, but I've driven all of them - no one else's comes close. The HK surround system is quite good. Very well balanced. Bass is tight and only present if it's in the actual recording. Build quality's definitely above the Japanese offerings. What amazes me is after 15, 000 miles, with about 90%-95% of those being driven by the car itself, is that I keep finding more and more areas of over-engineering and thoughtfulness by Mercedes' engineers. No detail is too small to be looked at. For example, the reading lights for the...

No detail is too small to be looked at. For example, the reading lights for the front seats are different for left-hand drive and right-hand drive countries. The lenses actually turn to minimize the amount of light hitting the driver's eyes.
