So for roughly the same price as a 550i, Benz is offering me this slightly used E63

    bimmer sackrider, but fuck. 604hp right? if it can actually manage 20mpg it's only 3 or 4 less than a 550i. That's a fucking no-brainer. It's not going to be as fun in the twisties, but everytime i go to pass someone my face will light up.....much like the tires.

    That's exactly what the Benz dealer said :mamoru:

    The BMW dealer said, "Do you want a car for prestige, or for driving pleasure"?

    Because I still find the 550i to be a better connected car than the AMG cars. Unless you really need to win the stoplight Grand Prix, I find the 550i to be a better car.

    The 550i will be a much more all-around fun car. The E63 is a dragster. Slicks on that thing and i bet it runs high 11's.

    and the bmw dealer is saying whatever he can to keep you interested.

    the only negative to the benz is the tranny.

    the E series 6.3 liter is sick, the exhaust is sick... if you were looking at an M5 then yeah i see his "driving pleasure" comment.

    sounds like a toolbox.

    In your shoes, I'd be down the Mercedes dealership as fast as my inferior non-E63 vehicle could take me, without a moment's reaction time.
