Your opinion

Let's not compare how much they would cost (total). What would be your choice (if there are only these)? Thanks

As of now, 80% for option one. Why? Because the more choices you have the more fun you have.

MB convertible for pretty days.
Lexus sedan for long highway cruises.
BMW M3 for powering the pavement.

Seems kind of wasteful, though, because the MB and the M3 can do the same job, and when you add in another car that'll need repairs and insurance, I'd dump the M3 pretty quickly.

Oh, how about an '83 500SL AMG manual and an '84 280E AMG manual?

That'd REALLY work.

Actually, my eyes are on the second one (2 benzes) because I love the CL55 (AMG). I currently have 99 S420, 99 SL500, and 01 LS430. The lexus has been very very reliable which I am a bit reluctant to get rid of. The 99 S420 would go (for sure) to replace with something faster.

There are also so many M3 out there compare to the CL55. I have no idea about the M3. 2 cars also mean less headache LOL.

Would I want to replace the Lexus for something (certainly much more fun) that would break all the time?

Anyway, THANKS for thoughts and time.

3 cars means 3 insurance premiums, 3 repair bills and 3 places to store them. I am building another garage as we speak!
