    But to be fair, a banana with wheels looks better than the CLS, too

    Right. Because every Tesla is slammed on HRE's.

    And I never said it's an ugly car. It's just an underwhelming, inoffensive design that does absolutely nothing for me. YMMV.

    To be fair someone did post a CLS63 dropped on different wheels with CF bits.

    The CLS63 does nothing for me like the Tesla for you. The pre-2013 W212 E63 AMG was the nicest looking in the lineup. Not a Merc fan both BMW M and Audi are better cars to me.

    Yeah, I understand why someone would prefer a CLS the same way I understand why "import tuner" fans do what they do, but I don't have the same values as those people and don't appreciate the same things.

    If you poke around forums you see Tesla owners that come from that crowd and vinyl wrap their cars, powder coat or plastidip their wheels or whatever it is those folks do (carbon fiber cup holders?).

    I prefer a more understated look hence think the Model S looks better than the CLS AMG. I also think the MB black series AMGs look worse than the regular cars they are based on - they just look tacky to me.

    It's also murdered out, no chrome.

    The HRE one looks good and it has that x factor, a stock one is missing.

    Just passed one an hour ago, model S is super boring. I'll take a Panamera any day over the Tesla Model S. The Tesla is pretty popular in Sofla, even Whole Foods have charging stations for them.

    that's the second prettiest modern MB ever built though, after the Gullwing. prettiest if you don't consider the Gullwing "modern"...so you're kind of bringing in a ringer

    i thought about buying one of those 2-3 years ago since they can be had for cheap and they're sorta bulletproof maintenance-wise but I couldn't get over that you know, automatic thing.

    No Sofia, SoFla - Southern Florida, like SoCal is southern California. He forgot to capitalize the F.

    Took my old Jag out for a 250mi jaunt. It's been a while and I have really missed driving that car. Nothing like a V-12.

    Dear automotive enthusiasts,

    Please stop arguing about your car personal vs other guys car preferences.
    Such conversations are futile and lead to nowhere. They equate to arguing about food, housing or women preferences. Its all a matter of preference and tastes. No one really wins.

    Thank you.

    carry on.

    OK, I'll post something befitting the title of this thread ("cars we drive" [vs. cars we like to argue the merits of]).

    Just moved cross-country and bought a house with garage so no longer outdoors, but I only kept the Mustang...

    Much like arguing about Men's Clothing and style, perhaps?
