RE: WHY MERCEDES??
I agree. Smart way to put it.
Most of us do city driving, and boggy usually.
Rare to rev up any engine.
Taking a fast turn is a lot of fun.
Blood boils though in the 0-60 run.
Can also get plenty of tickets.
And then you will sell all your goodies and end up with a KIA.
I still want to own an AMG V8 supercharged model.
I have posted a question on another thread about the frequency of repairs of AMG vs. regularly aspirated models.
I own the TTCayenne. I took my wife through every SUV available two years ago. Tax deduction purposes (thank you republicans!) We started with Porsche, and every thing else we looked at was second hand, except the X5. A little pocket rocket. So we bought that for the next year tax deduction. [BTW< the X5 is for sale, mint: http://cars.com/go/search/preview.jsp;?tracktype=usedcc&searchType=21&pageNu mber=0&numResultsPerPage=50&largeNumResultsPerPage =0&sortorder=descending&sortfield=PRICE+descending &certifiedOnly=false&criteria=K-%7CE-%7CM-_5_%7CD-_3197_%7CN-N%7CR-40%7CI-1%7CP-PRICE+descending%7CQ-descending%7CZ-32751&aff=osent&paId=179825084&recnum=2&leadExists =true payments are killing me]
I was astonished at the TT as it was the fastest thing on wheels I had ever driven. Ugly, but fast. And handles very well.
I also took a non SC E55 AMG out for a spin about a year ago.
Also extremely impressed. I had an E430, 97, and felt I was blessed. Amazing handling and uncanny feel for any Mercedes I had ever driven.
Have not been in any of the SC AMG versions.
a little bit of drooling going on and not enough funds at this point.
are they worth the money?
