s.i.f.i. I like your style!

2nd or 3rd car depending how you look at it. Definitely not my daily driver/commuter car BUT it is tough to leave "set" in the garage.

Co-daily since I got it about 3 years ago, alternate between E55 and Pathfinder. But ever since I put my headers on its been all E55 about 2 weeks now.

Been daily driving my CLS55 for 5 years now. 110,000 miles. It would be more but I park it when they start salting the roads. Since I read the forum, I try to preempt any problems. Hasn't broken down once. I'm due on the airmatic though.

I daily drive my E55 for the last 7 years... so far so good. I only drive CLS55 once a week because less power and less MPG...

Mine is driven daily, and raced (almost) weekly during the summer. I bought it 3 years ago with 56k miles; it now has 84k miles and over 100 documented trips down the 1320. :-)

I work out of my home office. Needless to say, it really cuts down on my annual mileage. I do enjoy taking the E63 out for errands, here and there. I've put 4,000 or so miles on it over the past couple years.

Better MPG because of the mods?

I don't know if the mod from E55 makes different in MPG. My CLS has 20" rims and feels much slower than the E. I really have to punch the CLS to make it fast compare to the E and not sure if because of the bigger wheels.
Even before I modded my E, it feels faster than the CLS. However, the CLS looks and handle better. E5514-19 MPG, CLS 12-16

With the amount of lux these cars have and how comfortable they are I don't see why you would DD it. As for me its my DD when I'm in the lower 48.

I don't DD mine. It's right at 53k miles. However, I love driving it and do take it out regularly. HB's are done with all ancillaries, LTH's and tune, high end audio system; windows down, pano open, audio cranked and foot on floor. It's a beautiful thing.........

08 E63 AMG
08 E63 here which has just ticked over 121k miles. I bought it 3 years ago with about 70k on it. Still in great condition and running strong. Here in the middle east it's mostly longer high speed runs and I have a pretty heavy foot even in built up areas.

Only major repair has been a full set of airmatic shocks. Long may it continue!
