I saw one up close for the first time this weekend and had "a moment". In a world that has become obsessed with not being impressed and downright cynical, I had a moment of earnest and reverent awe when I stood beside it. There was no trying to "play it cool", this was a complete disarmament. VERY few things… » 9/15/14 9:56pm Yesterday 9:56pm

FWIW, AMG doesn't give a damn you track your car. They actually encourage it. Guys post videos of their track days to the official AMG forms which area regularly browsed by execs and top engineers at AMG who are more interested in feedback than blacklisting your car for warranty work. I believe if you advertise a… » 9/15/14 7:26pm Yesterday 7:26pm

My "backup" (old) computer started smoking the other day. The Molex to SATA power adapter that connected to the Samsung SSD I had installed earlier this year had decided to melt. I got it turned off immediately but there was melted plastic on the power contacts. I carefully cleaned it but it appears the SSD is… » 9/15/14 5:00pm Yesterday 5:00pm

Depends. 2002 &2003 models are holding strong. Excellent condition normal mileage (100k) examples are going for over $20k and have been appreciating the past 6 months. The earlier years and modified example prices drop like a rock and stay there. » 9/15/14 1:40pm Yesterday 1:40pm

It doesn't JUST need more chat options. It needs someone to take a long hard look at mission design and progression. Go here -> hit action -> Peter Dinklage sounds surprised at new info -> find you need to go somewhere else -> kill something big with respawning trash mobs -> end mission Dinklage info dump -> repeat. » 9/11/14 1:40pm Thursday 1:40pm

I know I bias, but I like the front half of the SLS and the back half of the GT. Put them together and you'd have my perfect car. The headlights are "too" current SL for me. Also, the "grille" behind the front wheel is an awkard shape and proportion (if they had just made it longer vertically, it would fit). … » 9/11/14 1:11pm Thursday 1:11pm

FWIW the SLS' doors are light compared to any other Mercedes door. And if other recent AMG offerings are any indication will have some choice options that are all but necessary. Expect to write a check for $130-140k for a well equipped (Carbon brakes, etc) AMG GT S. » 9/10/14 9:16am Wednesday 9:16am

They don't want to step on SLS owners toes...but I couldn't care less if it had more power. The SLS is natural aspiration, port-injection so a pure Apples to Apples comparison is impossible as far as engine personality goes. Rumor mill has the Black Series version of the AMG GT putting down 560+ (but expect Weistec… » 9/09/14 5:50pm 9/09/14 5:50pm
