anyway I've ordered myself a CL 500 just 3 hours ago it'll be home this December ..
And who was the first to suggest the CL500? A magnificent beast. Great choice and lovely to be able to take a couple of friends in the back. I'm sure you will enjoy. Did you go for 2006 or 2007 model. Both are fine and I still prefer the looks of the 2006 though no doubt the '07 has many improvements. Photos please then all who doubted you can say sorry -including me.

I find it kinda totally tactless that he would say" ALL I have is...."

While there are children in this world who ALL they have
is a hungy feeling in their tummy because the parent(s)
can't afford any food.

And yes, before any one asks, I do donate $$$$s to
help the needy children.

Torpedo, good that you are not bothered by some of these comments - my father gave me our company demonstrator SLR at the beginning of this year when I turned 19; my sister got my little C55 and I also got a surprise pay increase to Euro1million a year and a promotion in our family business to Director. But my car is getting old and I am asking for a new one. I am on my first business trip right now and the first time I have been in North America. Things are different here; people are very poor compared to Monaco and also the Saudi clients of ours that I have met.

Interesting no photos from Torpedo. Camera a bit pricey perhaps?

You guys need to open you horizons a bit wider.
There are several millions of multimillionaires in this World and I am talking U$$ not liras.
There is nothing wrong if one of them gives a job with humongous salary to his son. It is the owner money after-all.
But ... usually such a rich father send his sons to best schools and .....
well educated sons don't brag about their wealth.
So take the presented story for what it is worth >>> face value.
