Maybe you should explain to me again how a 25 year old living at home actually knows what the value of money really is?

I think you are the last person to be giving an opinion on what car is overpriced or not
Endless asset acquisitions are possible thats why

Like I said rossi, they refused my deposit for a black. Either way I reckon P30 sedan is fine for now.

Um... Sedan is more practical?
Er.. Sedan is 5 seater not 4..


C63 Black Series coupe... Now THAT has a nice rear end.
I reckon the Coupe is a cracking looking thing, practicality wise though I can see why people opt for the sedan.

Really? Seems strange. They have 35 allocations for it, it's due out in the next few months no? I would have thought they were keen to book orders. Maybe it isn't selling that well?

Criteria for this car was not based on price. It was based on V8-ness.

Well when I was at Morrisons I was told that the number of cars to be brought in would depend upon how many solid deposits they had. So I asked whether they were still taking deposits then.. to which the SA replied "no, we're not taking any more." Effectively contradicting what he just said.

Sydney just said I would need to wait for someone to fall through.

Apparently they had 35 spots, they might have already filled. It's about $60k cheaper than what the CLK black was.

Having a 6.2L V8 will make my manhood larger than having one of the maserati 4.2 or 4.7 whatever they are.

Maserati Quattroporte is a 100k car when it comes time to sell. Sujoy did the right thing staying away from them!

I care, i personally don't have time to live in dealership service. Id rather live at home When i spoke to the Armo guy in service at Mosman he said there was no real reliability problems with the C63's. A few cars with minor electrical problems but thats very much present in BMW as well.

Not exactly.
1) I wouldn't buy a Maserati as a new car.
2) IMO, Granturismo S with the ZF auto is the one to get. Their SMG is awful.
3) M3 is virtually as good as the Granturismo, so that's probably a smarter choice overall if you want a car that goes and handles well. Did I mention reliability? Much better transmission too.
