Iam 24 year old single guy who just graduated and bought a 96 s320. The car is beautiful, but iam really getting sick of people saying stuff like 'iam too young for a car like this' or 'ure wasting ure money' or 'is this ure dad's car?' Is there anyone like me who drives a machine like this?

I was 26 when I got my 500SEL. Wanted this car for a while.
I could've had a new S55 if I wanted to, but I wanted to have a W140 for a long time, so I got one.
I never cared for what people think, what they see.
I like to enjoy my cars,
Speed, HP, Stability, and a good control at all speeds. I found it in my 500 SEL, a good car,
but, there are other cars to explore.
S55, BMW 745i Sport, M5, E55.

So many cars, so little time.

Not a bad list... You may want to look into a Jaguar XJR, and a Chrysler 300 SRT-8, I've heard nothing but good things from both....
Well, Jaguar XJR( I am not sure if its a 4-door or a coupe) Both of them are Supercharged, 390HP.
SRT-8 just doesnt have a good design, a strong design. But I would go with a JAG XJR if I could, such a sleeper.

I am not sure about removing badges, but, My last employer(boss) had a 2000 540i-Sport BMW-6-speed, that car was amazing, such a great car all around. We went looking for a replacement for that car, and after driving a 2000 M5 (same car as 540 plus 120HP), he went with a 2002 E500. Loves the car to this day.

I like special cars, 1979 450sel 6.9. I would love to own as a weekend car.
But in the future, I can see a S55(blown), M5)6-speed) 745i Sport. I am not sure about the Jag, but I am sure I will always have fun cars that can do things I want them to do and then some.
