What a race!


40 votes covered the top 3, which include the 3 models (170/171/172).


Only the final corner separated the front two.


Congratulations!


Time for a lap of honour....

THANK YOU!!
I do plan to take few more pic and will post them asap. I also plan to do a track day (Sponsored by Mercedes AMG) this summer at Austin and will keep the team informed. Work is keeping me from driving the car. I have put only 400 miles so far but it already feels little smoother. The engine heats (water temp) up really fast. In dead cold night 33F, the engine will reach operating temp in 5 mins. The transition oil takes long time to heat. I cannot feel any lag from turbo so far. Perhaps I am not hitting it hard enough. My other car GLK350 has v6 and that motor is almost has a more on/off characteristics then this turbo. One would think that the reverse would be true. I will keep you posted.


Thanks again for the award.

This is off the shelf red art optioned edition 43. It looks more expensive then it is (65K with one round of negotiation - 5 mins). I think dealers get a huge incentive to move these last year in production model. I could have got additional 2k off if I had the patience. The red strip on the wheels is little too much of a bling-bling. The matt paint is gorgeous. The show room had a GT next to my car in a metallic black and this red art slc looked more stunning. A flat back E63 is a stunner as well. I was told that water stain it will never come off.. since this paint does not have a clear protective coat. The wax (not wax really but protectant) for this type of paint, cost arm and a leg. Acid in the bird poop will itch through the paint in matter of days... so in short this is a garage queen.
