yeah, I always figured the AMG cars would be like that - scary fast but not all that exciting to drive. Figures, though, as Mercedes-Benz's MO is to build something that drives smoothly and luxuriously, not necessarily engagingly. BMW, on the other hand, prides itself on being a driver's car, you konw? "The Ultimate Driving Machine" here in the US and "Freude am Fahren" (Joy through driving) in Germany. I'll take an ultimate driving machine over a Benz almost any day

course, I do admit, I'm way biased
