tough choice

do u mean S550 instead of S500 ? I had a 06 M5 which was so fast and powerful in highways, but for city driving like in SF, the SMG wasn't good (jerks a lot!).

S550 is the way to go!

by 'the same price', do you mean if a RS4 is as expensive as a QP GT? or a QP GT is as cheap as an RS4?

the list of cars are not even in the same price category, or even in the same class.

at least, the MB's should all be CLS 63, S63, and E63.
as well, the Audi should be just S8 and not A8. the RS4 would be off the list as a competitor to the QP.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The price difference in the RS4 and the S8 is what, maybe $30k? Your list is all over the place but if I had to pick just one I'd probably go with the S8 and that sweet B&O system.

Best bang for the buck right now Mercedes CL600 style/ v12 twin turbo power 0-60 in 4.5 and you can buy an 2004 or 2005 for less than $55k with under 25,000 miles for a car that listed at $145k plus.

Kind of reminds me of something else! At least mine don't stink though.

Didn't mean to offend, I should have put a smiley at the end of that one. I do like the CLS. It was nice to see Mercedes step out of their usual pretty-good style.

Still, you could imagine a lot of things it looks like!

never liked the CLS... that IWC version seems to package it better. don't know what they want to achieve in the styling. is it really a 4 door coupe? (aston martin rapide did it better). belt line is way too high.

i did once have a hot chick in a white CLS 55 chasing my QP down and giving me a thumbs up and a sexy smile.

There probably is a reason for the massive depreciation ... they're probably not that good.

Wow! Its amazing how this forum has changed in just the last 12 months.
You've noticed it too. It's because Maserati has now become the "Italian Mercedes". No more real sportscars coming out of Modena.
It all started with the introduction of the GT.
Oh well, nothing stays the same.

Or maybe because the "newer" used cars are getting cheap enough that younger people are buying them?
