So I'm doing a european delivery on an E-Class. Any advice is appreciated.

Keep right unless passing.

Watch out for 150hp diesel golfs and Passat wagons flying at their 130mph top speed.

Mercedes museum and Porsche museum are both must sees. Both are in Stuttgart.

This looks like some shit from The Fifth Element. 

Jesus the direct sideview looks like a short bus vette and the front view I just see a penis.

Also, prepare to chuckle every time you see an exit sign.

Truly a beautiful language. My personal favorite... 

Also adding this pic from the same trip to keep thread on topic.

None of my business, but, why?  I mean, you could make a tractor fast if you wanted.  But, as long as you are spending a lot of money for very little in return, why wouldn’t you start with something a little more suitable?

People make tractors fast all the time.

Wife’s failed experiment with the Range Rover (as expected) is over. Just put her in a GLS63. Have to say, I enjoy driving the hell out of that mommy wagon. It sounds mean as hell.

Hah, point taken. But, in the context, more meant ones that can turn.

It’s almost always going to fail in that and a G Wagon. And, love the 63 motor.

Went to the car show in town yesterday. The new Corvette was there. I think it looks better in person than in pictures. I still don't like the rising button ridge on the center console.

The Lincoln Continental with the suicide doors was there. It's cool.

I am still amazed at how expensive trucks have become. Also, I looked at the new Ranger and the dimensions of that are pretty close to those of my 1994 F-150. Some of the trucks were so damn big. I've had three F-150s and I'm pretty solid as far as they go but the Rams sure looked nice, especially the interiors.

The Genesis G90 is really nice.

The Lambo tractors understeer. It’s all about managing the liftoff oversteer with the loud pedal on these babies.

Public thanks to Atxracer.  Traveling so been bit out of touch but his guy is as good as anyone in a race to see who can deliver fastest on the Taycan Turbo S.  Gonna go drive one to be sure but seems like a clear cut winnah.  This place has it all.  


Good luck on the Taycan. And if you need a beater I know there there’s a pretty clean low mileage Murci SV for $200K. You just have to figure out how to get it out of China.

In other news: pretty entertaining (if old) article on luxury straw buyers.

She’ll like it just fine until the warranty ends.
