    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Did you get a new camera as well? The pics look fab!

    Congrats!

    How does it compare to the Range Rover?

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Congrats Mike, she's beauty.

    You've made great pics this time. You took some classes or something

    Come on! Andi isn't that bad, a little bit disoriented maybe, especially at work, but basically he's a nice guy.




    The good thing is that you know who to blame if things start to go wrong. They should write the name of the guy who built the 997's engine. So each time RMS occurs, you can write him a letter to tell him how much he sucks.

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    looking forward to some video's after break-in period.
    Nice ride !!

    They should write the name and his address, so you could pop by and let him have it.

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Congratulations, Mike. And don't let the others bother you, if I would have the financial possibility, I would do the same.

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    If FIAT inscribed the name of the guys who built the car on every single vehicle, Torino would soon become a ghost town...

    Thanks - Been using my Canon camera for 8 months now.

    The ML63's interior is a little disappointing. The Range Rover has a much nicer interior, but overall I'm glad I made the trade. Will give more detailed insight as soon as she's run in, promise!

    I'll get pics of the Touareg and Cayenne with the ML tomorrow if the weather permits.

    You were actually bothered? Judging by the size of your car park, I would never have guessed .

    Seriously though, I'm glad that at least someone can enjoy these cars without worrying about finances or marxist neighbors .

    You guys make such a big fuss of what I said. I wasn't judging mike, I was just asking him a simple question. I'm happy for you mike, enjoy it in good health. I'm sorry if I made a wrong impression on you and others. I didn't meant to "bother" anyone. I guess you raise my curiosity because I don't anyone who owns that many cars.

    Anyway, congrats again. Aparently, the ML63 has the indoor speed record. (see another thread in the sportscar section)

    No worries, I wasn't lashing back at you, not even remotely. Was just stating my reasons for the decision

    If I did, I'ms ure you'd have heard about it by now . Lighten up man, it was meant as a joke, not to be taken too seriously (except for the FIAT part - I really did own one ).

    I was still joking, man, no need to worry.

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Mike S... im not trying to bash you, If I was in your situation I'd have a tiny mud hut in downtown Nepal [sorry Rossi -I forgot you live there ;-)] and 'invest' even more money on cars...but what I am wondering is why the SUVs? Sure I can understand having a ferrari for its wailing v8/12 and then a 911 for its iconic looks and guttural flat six..and also even an elise/exige for its peer-less handling and weight dist, but dont all of the SUVs pretty much feel the same? Half of them are even based around the same chassis anyway aren't they? If you had to get a 4*4 wouldn't you had rather spent the money on a vintage:

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Haha, Fiat cars are really that bad.

    I cant believe that people buy them, amazingly their sales last year increased 14% in Italy!

    I think only Italians buy them though.

    If you like your car to be efficient, reliable and cheap to buy and run you have to go Japanese.

    The news of the VW group aiming at competing directly with Toyota is almost a joke to me.

    Hi James,

    That is the thing, not all of them drive them same. They are all totally different! Some are great-off road and others are better suited for uneven tarmac Also with some of our horrid roads in SA a SUV should be the vehicle of choice for most people.

    Our choices to cars also become limited because it is illegal to drive LHD cars on our roads. That rules out quite a lot of options.

    Re: Range Rover gone, it's replacement...

    Amazing!!!

    The Ml63 is fantastic. I had the opportunity to drive it for a week and all i can say is it put a smile on my face. Absolutely love the car. fast and easy to drive. Good 4 everyday driving.

    Congrats buddy!
