There are no other events by MBUSA or MB-AMG at the NY Auto Show. Apparently, the head of AMG will be there as well. I can ask them about the brakes. Maybe not....

It is by invitation only and was limited to those that could scoff them up. I guess I got lucky.

It's an evening affair and IWC is also a sponsor. NICE watches!!

Access was arranged by the AMG PL. You applied for tickets and they gave out 35 or it may have got expanded to 100. Anyhow to access the AMG PL you need the VIN for your AMG. I had tickets and was going tonight but two flights got canceled and therefore i ended stuck at home and not in NYC with the lady.. Also Last year IWC the sponsor gave out a $5k watch to one of the AMG PL members. hope someone gets that lucky this time.

We Just Got Back!!

SL63 AMAZING! Nice crowd. New SLK there, I like mine. The new one is nice.
I expressed my opinions to AMG and MB reps, and was received with respect
and concern. SO, we'll see what happens. The Euro is Killing the Dollar, and the SL63 price point does not really reflect that difference. New SLK steering wheel is flater on the bottom,,, interesting.

Thank you for the updates,

I also think the SL63 is a terrific new car, it has certainley gained my respect and If I were in the market for a sports car it would be it.
