    Default Time to inject some practicality into my life...

    Got a great deal on a new C63S, Tenorite Grey, "InRich loaded", last years model as if it matters to me.

    Feels great to get into my first V8, really enjoying it so far though haven't had much of a chance to take it out yet. Had a hiccup on delivery this weekend so they had to bring it to me at work today. Spent every minute between work and bed driving it. Gunna need to remortgage the house for gas hahaha.

    Sad to see the BMW go, but felt like a change and couldn't justify dropping so much money to get into another car that was so similar to my last, I'm sure an M3 would be different but not 50k+ on top of mine different. Maybe in 4 years BMW will change their interiors up a bit. Doubt it.

    The sound is intoxicating...

    Next step is full front PPF and a ceramic coating, then burn through the break in to see what it can really do. Will try and get some pictures once its done at the detailers

    Nice purchase. The sound never gets old.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Did you buy the one from Lonestar that I posted in the "Recession Deal" thread? It was 88k back when I posted it, hopefully you got it for less.

    Didn't see your post but I assume so, I got them to move a bit more than that yea. Between the price and what I got for trade I didn't do too badly. They did a crap job advertising it on the website, it has almost every feature and option you would want on it. But none of that was on the website and not a single interior pick. Was a great decision to go take an actual look and take it for a spin. My gain their loss I guess.

    I already had my mind pretty made up to order one for a delivery next spring, I was very happy with the options on this one and between that and the discount I decided to pull the trigger a bit earlier.

    Yea the color was way better than I thought it would be, really suits the car well. No idea why Tennorite ( Steel Grey in the US ) has been discontinued, I am not a fan of any of the replacement colors for the '17s.

    As for the Avatar i was trying to come up with something creative last night but my laptop died haha. Not nearly as bad has my M inspired vanity plate that is currently on it

    Think I might try to order ALMNYGN. Fitting, ADMRGAS is another contender.

    Add More Gas maybe ADMORGS? I'll try to think of more plays on AMG haha

    As for justifying it, I don't pretend for one minute to anyone that it was a good decision. But I like cars and it makes me happy so YOLO haha

    great choice. I like the new M cars...but I'd take one of these in a second.

    Yeah these new V8s are nuts. Love it.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."
