Re: ML550 vs. Overland V8

Picked up a 2011 C63 AMG yesterday and was checking out a brand new G55 AMG . It was absolutely stunning, but so was the price tag. I also saw a GL550 that I thought was really impressive as well. The quality of the newer Mercedes make the Chrysler years seem like completely different cars. I have to say, if I was had the extra cash, I would love to have either one. The MLs were nice but definitely had the feeling of a soccer mom car.

The whole purchasing experience at Mercedes was completely different than my Jeep experience. If anything has me worried about my Summit order, it is the thought of having to deal with the dealerships and service departments going forward.

It's the wife's car. Her C32 AMG was starting to give her problems so she was ready for a new one. I was amazed at how well the new C63 handles in comparison to her C32.

Re: ML550 vs. Overland V8

Yeah I like the GL too but don't really need something that large anymore, hence getting rid of my Denali. And the ML is a soccer mom car for sure...kinda the German lexus RX. Like I said before I'd love a G class, but I just can't see spending more than about 70 on any car. When you start thinking about an extra 40k or so into an IRA, by the time I retire that will be quite a bit of scratch.

That Merc 6.2 V8 sounds incredible too...had to talk myself away from going crazy and getting an E63 instead of the more practical E550 4matic.
