even better than the previous model
November 30, 2017
the W222 S550 is even better than the earlier series w221. an improved dash layout and interior design for one.
the exterior design is growing on me more and more as have had it for one year now.
having a 2012 s350 also, the s550 is a very spirited driving machine compared to the s350 bluetec version, imo, save your money on the s63 or s65 versions, the s550 is powerful enough for spirited driving and costs much less.
my favorite options in my 2016 s550 , the Burmester 3d stereo system & the magic body control option. two options found standard in the s600 or s65 without the staggering price tag. the magic body control uses hydraulic system vs airmatic producing a cloud like ride.
the Burmester 3d radio boosts 1600 watts of the best stereo i have ever heard.
the only thing i really car for about the car, or should say tires supplied, is the standard equipped runflat series tires.
they are generate more noise, and a different ride, and no spare tire in the car. if you ruin a runflat tire and the local tire shops are closed, you are likely to become stranded.
If i keep the car past 3 years, i will replace the tire s with standard tires, and get a spare too.
