I'm surprised CLS sales are down so much. I didn't even know it was on sale at this time last year.

CLS has to compete with the new S-Class that just launched in February so slower sales are to be expected.

The R-Class sales story is much more interesting. The deals behind this thing are now PACIFICAUNBELIEVABLE!
