New to the forum - Considering E92 or F82

Wanted to say Hi to everyone. I'm here to read up and learn. In the mean time, here are a few pics of my current ride ('03 Mercedes E500) and the toy car I just sold ('09 Brabus smart)

I went back and forth debating on an E92 or next gen, and ended up deciding on an E92. My order's in the order bank. Just waiting for a production number now. Can't wait

Congratulations. Nice choice on the e92 and the exterior colour. I had one for a short spell traded her for a M-DCT (picture of it in my retired garage).

Your Mercedes 500 looks nice too.

I really like those HRE's on your benz. I don't think I have ever seen those before. What style were they?

The Smart looks nice modded. But I'd be scared to be driving that on the freeway next to 18 wheelers.

HREs on a Smart car... now that is baller... rims are worth more then the car

If you can wait 2+ years for an F82 then do it but if you want/need a car now then E92 it is.

Depends on what you're looking for? E92 is V8 NA, F82 will be turbo I6, but will most definitely have more power, yadda yadda.... lol
