Your Next Ride
I love the SLK 55 AMG...no doubt. But with so many cars from so many manufacturer's I find that I view it as a stepping stone.
I can't personally afford multiple (expensive or exotic) cars at the same time. My wife deserves a nice ride and I invest in that, albeit not to the AMG level. My AMG is my daily driver (as I think all cars should be used and enjoyed daily).
So, I have been looking at some exotics in the 1 to 3 year old range. Ferrari's, Lambo's, A-M's, etc. At the same time, I am looking at next (pricing) level AMG's, as I now find myself with both an affinity and a loyalty to these great constructs. A 1 to 2 year old low mileage SL AMG might fit the bill. So might a brand new Dodge Viper, or a heavily modded RS8. Very conflicted...
What do you all think? What is the loyalty layer for you? MB, AMG, specific model, price point, performance, "look at me" value, track readiness, ricer embarrassment, rareness, collection value, wife approval, this forums great people and a sincere desire to remain a part of it?
I’m not looking for you to criticize my possible choices, or recommend others, just what you think of your wonderful SLK in the timeline of your vehicle ownerships/investments...and how that weighs on your mind.
