Yeh - I recommend you consider getting Wheel+Tire coverage - your wheel design - with brushed finish - can oft require wheel replacement if you get a scrape..

I paid $1299 for 5yr unlimited miles wheel tire on my new 2014 e63s... Already claimed $600 in damages and it's been worth it

Picked up the 63 - OMG it is bonkers! I know I am breaking it n but i had to downshift once to 4500rpm to hear the crack and HOLY MOLY the exhaust (peformance) is BONKERS.

Full - in depth - new post to come. But god damn - I LOVE it so far. Putting 200 miles on her tomorrow. 50+ so far. Then next week ill do a 440mile form NYC to VT and back. I will update you all on along the way. I am more than impressed. Adaptive steering assist is sweeeeeeeet! HK sound system is great too. No need to upgrade. Plenty of range.

Ok ill stop - stoked.

I didnt take many photos since I was smiling driving fast. Breaking it in gently but hard not to go nuts in Sport+. 744 miles to go in break in. I am surprised at how bad *** the car looks on the exterior. I will take photos on my Leica this weekend in Vermont - hopefully these will show off the car better than my iphone.

The Carbon in the interior is significant and large. There's so much. Way more than the X5M I almost went with. The comfort mode is top notch, something the x5m couldnt offer - it was so stiff and the seats uncomfy.

I gotta tell you - the massage on my 100 mile drive from philly to nyc was a nice was to keep y back moving. It's not annoying, just nice to keep loose.

Can't wait to write a full review.

So. Much. Carbon.




CarPlay. It's just ok.

The 450 coupe is BAD *** though. Not a cost thing. It's amazing. I see them in manhattan and they look evil. So wide. I'd delable it and remove the 450. If I didnt need the space I might be in a coupe. But my sports and travel need space.

Ha no I will not be. I am trying to find a Tow plate that wont block my sensors. And if I use it... we will see.

If anyone has one that works please share that info.

Nice! I will save that site. (Unfortunately I just paid a gaggle on a roof box that says "mercedes" on it. When instead I should have just bought a regular thule box and changed the stickers. FYI, MB is still selling the older style mount boxes which are a pain in the butt to mount.)
