American muscle? No. Come on man, have you ever owned a Mercedes? They're great cars. Do they handle as well as a BMW? No. Should they be lumped with Mustangs, Corvettes, etc. because they don't? No.
I'm not that into the third pedal. Yeah its more engaging. I'd get tired of it after a while. BTW, MB does offer some manual transmissions, the current SLK model, for instance.
They're becomming pretty useless imho, all of the automated stuff is just simply faster. Part of the reason why the M3 sucked in Autocar's review. The guy got 0-60 in 5.2 with the M3's 6 speed.
