long time lurker first time poster...
So I just ordered a 2012 E63 (getting rid of my 2005 E55) and all of the research I have done to-date (which there is limited info on the web) stated that the new engine and the predicted 15/22MPG was going to mean the car would not get stuck with the Gas Guzzler tax.
well, during the configuration of my vehicle, low and behold, the $1700 tax shows up on the Ticket.
Has anyone else ordered a 2012 E63 and experienced the same situation? The info is limited at this point, but I am wondering if the performance package (adding the horse power) but it over the top.
