2009 CLS63 AMG – New P15 Wheel and Sound Enhancement Option

Mercedes has just announced an new wheel and sound system upgrade option for the 2009 CLS63 AMG. For $3,000 the new P15 AMG Wheel and Sound Enhancement Option will include an AMG performance sound system and new 19 inch AMG twin 5-spoke forged light-alloy wheels. Here is the information from Mercedes on these items;

E02 – AMG Performance Sound System
Featuring the latest in digital amplifier technology and high-tech materials, the AMG Performance Sound System delivers outstanding dynamics and sonic clarity. With 12 studio loudspeakers and 2 ICEpower amplifiers offering a total output of 705 Watts, this system brings audiophile sound quality to the cabin of the CLS63 AMG.

793 – 19′ AMG Twin 5-Spoke Forged Light-Alloy Wheels
With forged construction and a design unique to AMG, these light-alloy wheels offer not only reduced weight at all four corners, but styling that complements the aggressive lines of the CLS63 AMG. Forged construction results in wheel that is stronger and lighter and suited perfectly to the dynamic driving enjoyed by AMG customers.

In the event that you have a CLS63 on order and don’t want this package make sure to contact your salesperson since they are automatically adding this option to all cars currently in changeable status.

XM & Sirius Merge – Listen To Both In Your Mercedes

Owners of 2008 and newer Mercedes can now add “The Best of XM” to their existing account. However, some vehicles will require a trip to the shop for updated software.

If you have a 2008 or 2009 S/CL-Class or a 2009 SL/SLK/E/CLS/M/R/GL-Class with a Command head unit your software update should be available mid-October.

If you have a 2008 E/CLS/SLK-Class with a Command head unit the software update is currently being tested and they are hoping to have it available by the beginning of November.

All other 2008 and 2009 vehicles should receive “The Best of XM” without a software update.

Changes for the 2009 Mercedes CLS550 and CLS63

2009 Mercedes CLS63 AMG

While the look of the CLS has remained just about the same (why mess with perfection!) the value has gone up substantially. Navigation has become standard equipment – and not the old navigation but the new system that debuted in the C-Class and that will be in the E, ML, GL and R-Classes this year. The old P2 Package is gone and all of the desireable equipment – Xenons and Keyless GO – have been added into P1 Package. The P1 Package went up in price, from $2860 in 2008 to $3950 for 2009 which is less than 2008 P2 at $4770.
