There's got to be more, but I can't remember them all.

Diversity FTW.
Although, some of these were complete crap.

LOL, 41 here, but I could probably fool a few of you into thinking I'm 39 or something.

My short list of self-owned cars, far less impressive than your guys':

1990 Mazda Miata - 8 months (sold for BMW)
1987 BMW 325is - 3 years (currently trying to sell)
2003 Mazda Protege 5 - 1 month

After 3 years of a 26 year old BMW, felt like something more modern. Although it was fun, it just felt tired. Also the fact it was an automatic was kind of a buzz-kill. I am loving the space, practicality but also the fun-factor of the Protege. Although it's a wagon, it is so nimble and fun to drive. Very happy with it.

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif My config would probably be closer $90-100K, but it is a very, very nice car.

JayJay, how does the supercharged 63 compare to the biturbo? I have always had and liked twins.....Heavily modded Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Camaro 1200hp, lightly modded Supra Twin Turbo being my other twins.
Never ever driven a supercharged car shog[1].gif

Regards.

A bit of turbo lag, but when it gets going it feels like a rocket. Scary fast given it's size. I'm still getting use to the size, even though I've had an S-class before, just not with this much torque and power. My CL was so much lighter that I felt as though I could whip it around much more. The V12 was also much smoother and stealth, which I liked.

CL stands for Comfort Leicht. Appropriate naming, then, I guess wink.gif
