Default New 518

I was invited to test drive the new 518 late last week and somethings I like and dislike,
the kidney grille looks nice but the removal of the spot lights makes the front dull and unattractive, also putting the side indicators in the mirrors instead of the wing now leaves the chrome on the wing a blank, the free automatic upgrade comes at a cost because the dealers discount was small in fact virtually no discount.Driving the 518 I found the car to be underpowered but the new colour Callisto Grey is nice.

Agree. 105 kW (143 bhp) @ 4000 rpm and 300 N m (221 lb ft) @ 1750-3000 rpm for that body this engine will suck.
