New S- Coupe owner

Hello! I recently purchased a new S550 Coupe Edition 1. I actually traded a 2012 Audi R8 V10 for it, plus a little differential. I have to say that I am in love with this car. It is such a personal vehicle. I do like the red interior, and it grows on me daily. I like the understated looks of the S550 as well. It does have the sport kit on it with the 20 inch AMG wheels, so it does look sharp, but I had all badging removed, so it is easy to look over, but if you know what you are looking at, the badges dont matter anyway.
The R8 got all sorts of looks , especially when checking in a nice hotel or restaurant. I took the S550 to the Trump in Chicago, and I actually had 3 guys walk right past my car to look at the new model Escalade. It is great on the highway, and the sound is not the piped in stuff like those guys from Munich. Just a nice rumble with the cruise set at 85.
I have a 2013 GL550 taht convinced me of Mercedes further, and I had been watching this car from teh Concept stage, so super pumped about it overall. It gets better every day.

Problems cannot be solved with the same level of thinking that created them.

Sorry for the delay. Holidays and all. So far it has been a blast. The interior has really grown on me to the point that I can't imagine it in plain old black. I gave it a wash, clay bar, and wax here. No dressing on the tires yet so that may look a bit off. Yes I debadged it as I do that with all of my vehicles as possible.
It does need window tint and a radar detector and jammers at some point but probably not till spring. So far so good.
