Long-time M-B Owner - New to BenzWorld

Hello to all other BenzWorld members. I have owned a Mercedes-Benz since I was 18 years old. I purchased my 1961 190SL from the original owner back in 1974 and still own it and drive it on nice weather weekends. I purchased, (leased) a number of Mercedes-Benz vehicles for 3 year durations, beginning with:
- 2000 E450 Sport
- 2004 E55 AMG
and then leased a 2007 ML63 AMG. At the end of my 3-year lease in 2010, I realized that I enjoy that vehicle so much that I decided to purchase it. Today, it serves as our weekend and long trip vehicle. My motivation for the original selection of the ML63, along with the decision to purchase it include:

1. The desire for fast, exhilarating speed, primarily neck-wrenching, grin-inducing acceleration. (Faster than most other top-of-the-line SUV's/SAV's)
2. Uniqueness, compared to the other SUV/SAV's on the road in your respective areas. (you don't see that many MB ML63 AMG's around)
3. Capacity to accommodate 4 people and their stuff (well, we have to rationalize it somehow to the family and neighbors....)
4. Ability to tow things, trailers, boats, wave runners, etc. (best looking and most capable SUV/SAV hauler on the road!)
5. Mercedes-Benz reputation, (i.e. quality, prestige, and the fact that it is not a Jeep!)

I look forward to participating on various forum topics related to my expericences with both of my Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
