RE: MB Pet Peeves
With all the comments on M-power, just so that many of you know, the Sport packages on the older 5s and possibly even the new ones too, if you had the "Sport" package, that meant you got the M steering wheels with the M logo on it, and the M logo on the wheels, as well as a few other trim items.
I plan on putting many things onto my car that are AMG badged parts, will I be putting the AMG badge onto the trunk deck? No. I think that trunk deck badge should be reserved for cars with true AMG performance.
Besides folks, you're already driving a Benz, be proud of that, many many people envy you for it.
Pet peeves of mine, I hate people, (this goes for most expensive cars) who think they own the road. I saw a guy in a S500 the other day pull up to 4 way stop, pause, not even worry about other cars and proceed on, he nearly hit 2 other vehicles. He didn't even look around, or touch the brakes when he realized there were other cars there or anything. Just kept on cruising like nobody else exsisted. I hate drivers like that, if they are in a Benz, people start thinking all Benz owners are arschlochs, if a Bimmer driver does it, then all Bimmer owners are arschlochs. And this isn't true, there are many nice people who own these cars, just look at this forum and you'll know that.
This is why whenever I am out driving, I am as courteous as possible, I wave people through the intersection, I slow down to let trucks onto the highways that way they don't have the do the "Well, looks like I'm going to have to merge on top of them and hope they move" deal. Maybe if just one person in his Benz ca be nice and dispell the myth we're all arschlochs, then maybe the few bad apples won't build such a bad reputation for us.
