I want to thank everybody for the great comments about my car and myself, and I too have been a vulture many times over, so I'm not hating....
I REALLY love my coupe. I love driving it and looking at it standing still. I love when nearly everyday someone on the road gives me thumbs up! Even here in LA, land of the exotics, I still get thumbs up from young guys and old alike.
But I'm also kinda over it and I think it's time to move on and move up. Maybe I won't get a Bentley or a Rolls. IDK? Maybe a Porsche? Maybe a Ferrari? I may stay in MBZ and get a CL55 or SL55. I move forward, I don't stay stagnant.
There are a lot of other cars that strike my fancy. A key factor is where I land my next job at. This contract is over in 5 weeks and I am interviewing all over the place. Here in the Valley, LA, Beverly Hills, DC, Dubai, UAE, Kuwait, everywhere. If I do land a job in the middle east, I'll sell both cars and all of my parts so I won't have to store them, then be there for two or three years, bank a bunch o cash, and come back and buy what I want. I'm a vet, and used to hold a TS/SCI clearance and have travelled overseas before for govt contractors, and I'm a Sr. DBA and Systems Admin, so I have good assets and can pretty much pick and choose. And I want the same for the next car.
The coupe, as fun as it is to drive, is VERY noisy and has a very rough ride. I want quiet and luxurious speed and power. And thanks, but I don't need a million suggestions. I live in the car capitol of the world and have examples of the very finest cars right here on campus! There are at least ten Bentley's at pick up time.
I don't know yet what I want. My SEL will get me by until I make my next move which I don't know what is yet.
