By now you, and 1.8 million other people, have seen the humorous Audi S7 commercial on YouTube featuring past and present "Star Trek" Spock actors Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto.

It's a great ad that cleverly shows the rivalry between automakers. But we've got a problem with the depiction of poor Leonard Nimoy not being able to fit his clubs in the CLS' trunk.

Why?

Well, because we fit a set of clubs in there just fine. Actually, it was two sets and an overnight bag.

In fact, I wrote the review of the redesigned CLS back in 2011 and made sure golfers would know it was a good pick for them: "The trunk, too, is on par with the E-Class in terms of space, so golfers won't have to fret about sacrificing practicality for the CLS' style and performance."
