Finally!

After 4 months of waiting my 12' black laredo x finally made it to my base in Germany! Such a beautiful car, drove great on the autobahn as well, didn't want to push it though! I think I might sleep in it tonight... :-)

Re: Finally!

Why do you call that an upgrade?

Re: Finally!

Much as I love our WK2, it doesn't have quite the "on rails" high speed feeling I get in our elder restored Benz. The Benz really gets into its stride around 80-85 mph, and it feels even more solid the higher the needle goes. It's hard to resist going into triple digits when the opportunity arises.

The WK2 is pretty much the same critter no matter what the speed -- very good, but you never feel quite as one with the road as with the Benz.

I assume this is because German vehicles have to kick butt on the autobahns.
