Pros - Performance, comfort, looks (IMO), kit which all makes for a great tourer, great cruiser, great commuter, great dragster and an interesting track car!
Cons - depreciation, avoiding temptation to modify (to much while under warranty),exhaust a bit muted in stock form (solved) non-ceramic brakes not that great for my use ( solvable but really expensive) and an interesting track car!

Hi could you let me know how you unmuted yiur A45amg exhaust please regards

I agree about the parking system. I've owned a s212 in e350 and now e63 since 2012 and it is a dated system. My 645ci had a better system as a 04 plate !?

My only other gripe is the lack of AWD.

Obviously both problems solved when I move up to a s213, once prices drop below £50k :devil:

E63S AMG
Pros:

1. It looks amazing both inside and out, I’m in love with it’s looks!
2. It sounds amazing, love the engine
3. It’s bl**dy fast
4. Great boot, practical
5. Love the seat comfort
6. Love the steering wheel

Cons:

1. Ride quality, it should be more comfortable in Comfort mode, simple as
2. Steering is a bit stiff in Comfort too, I guess for both 1&2, it would be good to have a softer Comfort mode
3. Tech is a bit dated and fiddly ie laggy, no wireless Apple CarPlay, no remote start/aux heating, no integrated music streaming. BMW are defo ahead here, though not seen MBUX but that wasn’t available at the time

S205 C63s Estate + w211 e63 +smart 44 brabus sport
C63s estate 2018 pre facelift :

Pros:
+ the rear tyres have a severe allergy to asphalt
+ Communication through the steering wheel and back side is rather good
+ great traction control allows endless low speed slippy slidy fun at junctions , corners and roundabouts
+ you get to nurture the inner 4 year old child within with silly loud exhaust sounds and pops and bangs in sport plus and race mode
+ rather excellent transmission
+ no turbo lag on the 4l twin sea shell engine
+great smooth motorway cruiser especially with the driver assistance package even though the steering does sometimes get involved with distronic off.
+lovely interior and cockpit
+incredible safety tech with the LSD and ESP , I've had many moments where I should have fishtailed but didn't
+no body roll with ride control set to sport plus , brilliant handling and cornering ability for such a porker

Cons :
- Residual value vanishes quicker than a spray on tan
- petrol tank empties faster than balance sheet assets at clubs managed by Harry Redknapp
- turns me into an immature 5 year old who can't help driving in gear 2 at 3k revs letting go of throttle every 3 seconds ...
- not many winter tyre choices
- no android auto or Apple car play
- heavier than Gemma Collins after a month of bargain buckets thrice a day at KFC for a month
- much more talented than it gets credit for
- will possibly rendered obsolete by the facelift
- tyres have a severe lack of tread after a few k miles
