So much less room in the S550 - which makes it look more cluttered... I can tell you from experience that I am more than thankful for the amoutn of elbow room available in the S197...

I think they went a little backwards in this department, but maybe we're seeing a pre-production model or mule here also...can't be sure until they actually hit the roads I guess...
