  1. Yes he does. Pretty arrogant to think he can improve on such an iconic design.
  2. I agree the AMG rides harsh, but where I live the roads are good so it's not a problem. That's said I think it handles well for a large car. Relatively speaking price wise it's a bargain compared to Panamera turbo s. With the Renntech upgrade, it's super car fast. I love it's sledgehammer nature. Gas mileage is awful, I'm averaging 12 mpg. Mercedes should have fitted a larger gas tank. My wife has had 3 BMW 3 series diesel wagons in a row, they are great cars. Shame BMW stopped importing them.
  3. I ordered the tune. Colour matching the calipers to the car. Red is stupid.
  4. Picked up an e63s last week. Love it and the attention it doesn't get. According to Renntech they actually make stock 685 hp and the 0 to 60 is 3.08, 0 to 100 7.29. A $3,500 tune gets you 773 hp/778 ft pds of torque, 0 to 60 2.8, 0 to 100 6.76.
  5. It's a VW group engine, I'm sure ABT could provide you with a solution. Not sure why you would need a tune on 640 HP SUV.
  6. I drove by a Costco yesterday morning around 7:30 am. There must have been 2,000 people in line hours before it opened. If that type of hoarding behauvior continues, rationing may be coming. The stupidity is mind numbing.
  7. That is next level. I always associate Pagani and Koenigsegg together as they came to market around the same time. The Zonda was a much better first effort, Koenigsegg had a kit car feel at the time. The game has moved on and Pagani hasn't adapted. This, the Jesko. The Hyuara is a dinosaur with only 800 HP and rocking a single clutch gearbox. It didn't move the game on from the Zonda. Should have built the Hyuara with a manual and carved out that niche.
  8. Having owned three Audi's, one I still own, they make BMW look like Lexus. Reliability is not good. I couldn't agree more, love the concept of a superfast estate, hate this execution. People who drive estate's want Q cars. Mercedes does it better, but even their styling is getting close to obnoxious.
  9. Thanks, got too much going these days to pay attention. Working on the second act.
  10. You really have to rev that cossie, not a lot of low down torque. It's a dog leg too, which is great. I'd still have the CLK, they are a bargain and will appreciate, especially as unupgraded motors continue to grenade. Another classic early 90's E500. I owned one for 18 months, stolen, seamless torque in it's era. Off topic, my friend that owns the CLK, built a 91 Audi RS2 Coupe. Imported all the Porsche and Audi factory parts and built a car that never existed.
  11. The 2 series is a remarkably good car. I had a lowly 228i as loaner for a week and was blown away by how fun it was. It's tiny and only double amputees can fit in the back. I didn't want to give it back.
  12. All good choices. I have a buddy that owns a CLK Black. Put the rear seats black in so he can take his kid to school in it. It's a sledgehammer, not a scalpel and all the better for it. It's an absolute blast to drive. Just got to get the head bolts upgraded. I'd add a 71 280 SE 3.5 Cab to that list.
  13. Barely....and no longer engaged on this site. More interested in the older cars, love the flaws and character. Not interested in driving a robot.
  14. Wasn't talking politics that destroyed this place.....well that and the botched "upgrade". I still prefer the old site.
  15. Totally inappropriate title. My wife and I were regulars at Lakers games when we lived in LA. When we lived in Los Gatos, we would go to Golden State games (when they sucked) to watch them. We were at the double-overtime game against Phoenix in the playoffs, the greatest game I have ever seen. Kobe sunk a 3 to tie the game to go overtime, sank another 3 to send it into double overtime, sunk another 3 to win the game in double overtime. The guy was a killer on the court. A true legend. Unbelievable work ethic. RIP. Such a shame his oldest daughter died and 7 other folks.
