    With all those radars there must be enough RF energy about to cook a good meal. I would love to know how Mercedes have reconciled all those systems with the electromagnetic compatibility requirements of the different markets around the world.

    Bacon scent for the perfume dispenser?

    Like the road anticipation suspension control. Infiniti tried that years ago with the Q, but electronics have come a LONG WAY since then. In the end, this S is just a floating test bed for technological excess...at its owners expense (read: in frustration and frequent visits to the dealer!).

    I'm not sure where the idea of significant fuel economy savings from LED headlights came from. 1 hp = 746 watts, so you'd be hard pressed to save much fuel at all even at cruising speeds...

    Amazing tech, no two ways around it but I'm with zoomzoom on this one... anyone ponying up the big bucks for one of these should prepare themesleves for a mountain of depreciation and developing a good working relationship with the service department at their local Benz dealer.

    I can't wait to buy this car in 15 to 20 years. Hopefully whoever is paying the depreciation maintains it well for me.

    the magic ride sounds like a nice little feature, unless it gives you a false sense of security going over bad patches of road/parking lots. I wonder if it can prevent you from doing unintended damage to your undercarriage if you can't feel it? Maybe if you hear loud grinding noises, you know the bump was too big! Or you ran over someone!

    I wonder how long it will take for some of this to technology to trickle down to the everyday car (other than LEDs)? It would be funny to hear about Kias with heated armrests to go along with their vented seats!!!
