Reading my mind...
MB can throw all the freakin' HP they want at their sh!ty product... as long as they continue their primary build philosophy, they will never drive or perform like a BMW. Every rag I've read has described MB/AMG perfectly... they're like an old school muscle car with ultra nice amenities. Far, far from true a BMW competitor.
Just so my opinion is clear... AMG builds amazing power plants. I just don't get the whole "throwing pearls to the swine" part of this execution.
