Not the best opinion of JEEP in my household, but okay.

Nice selection! Almost mirrors my own families choice of vehicles! We've had A4s, M6s, W210s and S Classes....any particular reason you switched from the W221 S Class to the new 7 Series? Am an S600 owner myself so interested to hear your thoughts.

Good call on the G-Wagen!

thank you for the compliment

the 7 is a much more sportier ride, its more responsive and handles better then the 550, it is also quicker or feels that way.... the best way to put it, its like the S is a "floater car" Pure luxury.... i have always said (from the german class cars), if you want pure luxury get a mercedes, if you want pure sports car, get a porshe, if you want a mix of both, get a BMW

On another note, the 7 might just be around till the new S comes out in 2012 as a 2013 model.... so i love both cars...

the G wagon was an unbelievable truck.......... driving here in NYC, i felt like i could barrel threw just about anything with the G.


can anyone guide me as to how to put pictures up????

Interesting, I suspected it was to do with the sportiness aspect. Have you tried any of the AMG W221s?

I agree the V8s in the W221s do feel rather lame, stepping up to the 600 (bi-turbo!) gives a lot more oomph. I scare passengers quite a bit because although my 600 has the AMG appearance package you'd never really guess it was as quick as an M5 in a straight line.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

all of my benz's had the sports package (AMG) i have driven both the CL63 and the S63, they are both animals but for now, i would love to get behind BMW's B7..... http://img833.imageshack.us/g/0428104.jpg/


i am missing some photo's but a good chunk of them are on

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Very nice. Love the W140 with AMG monoblocks and the CL, which to me is one of the nicest looking Mercedes ever produced.

Personally I'm not a big fan of the 63 AMGs, they sound amazing but they really lack in torque department compared to the 600 and 65 AMGs.

Is that AM a Rapide?

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

i personally like the 63's, but BMW's M's are definatly much more fun to drive.... my Problem with the 65 is that i could find a hand full of cars to spend 175k+ on, and not a mercedes.. lol

and yes its an AM Rapide, i had the car in LA for a couple of months. (i didn't own it)

True, at that price point there's a fair few cars I'd rather get...a bit more $$$ will get you into a Flying Spur for example, which makes even the designo/600/65 interior look like a Kia...

The 65s do make incredible second hand buys, even at 18 months to 2yrs old they're 50% off the MSRP!

Very nice, I'm fairly certain my uncle with a car fetish (and connection at AM for being a regular) has one on order. I'm very jealous.

They took the right direction in styling these finally. They were hideous before.

I get anywhere from 10-13 in the city and around 15 highway. Its really not that bad. The truck is geared for the bigger tires so it doesn't phase it much.
