S63 from UK / Europe

Thought I'd introduce myself first before I start asking questions

Belgian native, but lived in UK, France and Finland.

Driven a few Mercedes's.
- w124 300D (kept it 7 years and done 140000 miles)(absolutely trouble free!)
- W124 E300D (written off in an accident after 1 year)
- W210 E230 (had it 11 years and done 160000 miles, again absolutely no problems ever)
- W220 S320 (6 years, 115000 miles. No issues, bar the typical COMAND problems of Satnav giving up).

Now I have this beautiful S63 AMG. It is Designo Platinum Black, has the 20" five-spoke wheels, grey leather interior, and has most options, including the NightVision camera, massaging and ventilated seats, Distronic, etc.

To be honest, I was a bit lucky that the car market was doing so badly in 2008-2010. I was aiming for an S500, but I was offered a VERY big discount on this car which was already standing at the UK dealer and did clearly not shift easily given the crisis...

I have always had Mercedes's because they gave me trouble-free motoring anywhere I went for many years. True, this one is a bit expensive on brakes, but all the electronic toys have been faultless. Unlike the basics of the car itself. (cilinder head and gearbox).

What I love most: the sound (of the exhaust, not the valves )

Few pics.

In case you wondered about the plate: Hannu is the little chap in the picture
