no hatin on your wife's car. i guess people from other parts of the country are more used to certain things. if someone drove that through california, believe me, you'll definitely get a lot of looks and stares, from both men and women, but not for the right reasons. there will definitely be a lot of photos taken, and soon you'll see it on fb with negative and ridiculing comments. if someone was driving a pink car here, they're either a pimp (literal pimp), or paris hilton's in town. but to each his/her own. if it's cool in florida, it's just fine.

if your wife likes it and makes her happy, more power to you guys!

Meh, Mercedes... Owned and SLK230 that was a total piece of shot. I'll never own another Mercedes again. Oh, and that color made me throw up in my mouth a little, but to each his/her own.

I could never take that car seriously. If your wife loves it though, that's all that matters.

thanks, but for the right reasons? we really don't care if they like it or not, life isn't about doing what other people expect or want you to, it's about doing what you like and want.

opinions are like assholes eveybody has one and everyone thinks theirs don't stink.

As long as she enjoys it, all that matters I guess...
+1000 definitely agree with you here. it's like being a mini celebrity i'm not used to it, i don't like it, but my wife loves having something different and the attention associated with it.

well, let me rephrase, i do like the attention especially when chicks look, but i don't want it ALL the time, which is why this isnt our daily.
