These guys are just engaging in a self back patting exercise to rationalize a 20-30k purchase which they probably could barely afford.
Couldn't have said it better myself. This is why Stealth is the man. I've personally never really been interested in MB. I just never liked their styling both exterior and interior. I can't say that they are slow or aren't great cars, cause I've never driven one. Most of my opinions on MB's come from Jeremy Clarkson and The Smoking Tire anyways. If they say if I want a car that communicates everything that it's doing on the track then I go buy an M3, if I want a car that can just smoke the tires really well, then I buy a C63 (not Black Series). If I had to pick an MB to own and had no other choice, I'd probably go with an SLS, C63 Coupe Black Series, or 2012 CLS63 in that order.
