The M5 was available for 499+VAT in February. For someone on 80-100k a year, that's a drop in the ocean.

The NHS (business side of it) is a joke. It's rotten and corrupt to the core. Bungs, briberies.. the lot. Which other organisation would pay 40 for every light bulb that get's changed in their premisses?

80,000 is only 4100 take home through paye.

Now, if your mortgage is 1500, food 600, gas and electricity 300, pension 1000 (40 years to earn half income and retire at 65) that doesn't exactly make 600 a month 'a drop in the ocean'.

You still got to be into your cars to bung that sort of money out each month.

However much an M5 costs it'll no doubt be cheaper than an S600, they're well over £100k to buy new!

Plus the depreciation on S Class Mercs are horrendous at the best of times, on a 600 it will be horrific.

Someone selling an S65 AMG on the Merc forum, 56 plate with 40k miles on it, new price was 160,000 and he is asking 35k for it. The S600 is far less desirable and will do its biscuit just as badly.
That S65 AMG is some motor for 35k, 670bhp and 1100nm of torque!!

Yeah I bet they're a bit of a weapon!
Must eat rear tyres though with that much torque going through them! I think mercedes had to restrict them to that torque so it didn't kill the gearbox and unrestricted it actually produces much more than that!!
