Thanks Jay. I'm ok myself yeah... I figured the car would be fixable and was sorta pissed off given potential implications for resale value down the road. Definitely surprised it is being written off but certainly the best scenario long term.
Some cars I've tossed around in my head so far are the C63 AMG sedan, M3 coupe, Cayman S, etc. Not a huge fan but the Audi RS5 is probably a bit of a stretch as is the Nissan GTR, 911, M5, etc.
I have a great contact at Mercedes so know I can get an excellent deal on a 2013 C63... the 481hp performance package is pretty appealing not to mention the new interior is fantastic. We'll see, might go the used/CPO route for something on the higher end of my scale...
