Newb and potential Benz owner.
Great site you gents have here! I will likely spend weeks combing it. However...
So I have been researching my next car, the things I was looking for in said car were...
A sedan big enough for a family of four.
Big inch engine with some power behind it.
Initially I was looking pretty hard at the offerings from Chrysler's SRT-8 cars when I buddy of mine pipes in with "What about a Benz" well not just ANY Benz... but a SPECIFIC (very specific) Benz... an 07-09 W211 E63 AMG. Briefly going over it's Specs I would say it most certainly fits the bill for what I am looking for.
Thing is I know ALMOST nothing about Benz. Other than they have the greatest shade of silver ever painted on any car ever.
Other than this forum, are there some other locales that you guys could point me in to school myself a bit more on these cars. What to look for, what to avoid, books, tech articles, personal experiences.
Things like cost of ownership, are they more difficult to work on than any other car made in the last decade?
And yes (because there is ALWAYS one lol), I know how to use the "search feature" but also like to engage people in convo.
Anything will be helpful.
