1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    To my mind, it looks like the Waterman Carene fountain pen -- kind of overdesigned...
    I just googled the Waterman. There is definitely a resemblance of line!

    For about the same money why not the C63 AMG? I'd consider it if I wouldn't feel guilty driving a car that drank 15-16 mpg.

    I've driven both the Cl600 and the CL63. The 600 is a pleasure to drive - the 63 I find almost un-drivable. I might have been of the oposite opinion 20 years ago, but I couldn't have affored either back then.

    I agree, the 600 is certainly smoother and also has a very intoxicating V12 engine hum. The 63 is definitely a beast but the 65 with its outrageous torque can be frightening.

    I'm sure the average CL65 buyer needs a 6.5 liter twin-turbo V12...[​IMG] Really, the CL63 is MORE than enough.

    I don't think "needs" are at issue when you consider buying anything other than a four cylinder, unless you're buying a truck or you live in the mountains, or both.
