    2014 awd e63 wagon

    Has anyone driven or bought one yet?  We need room for the dogs and this seems a delightfully absurd way to do itSmiley


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    I drove the E63S Wagon Monday in Vegas at a AMG event.

    It's absurd how stupidly fast that thing is.

    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    It has to pretty close to the perfect family q car. Especially in North America where wagons are rare. Other than being higher up, is there a reason to have a fast SUV over this?

    The Audi RS6 Avant has always been sort of the best of this bunch agains the E63 and M5 Estate. Maybe a look at it wouldn't be a bad idea either.


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    RS6 old advantage was the awd system. Now that Mercedes is putting 4Matic into AMGs, they no longer have that advantage.

    Good point, I forgot about that. Also I like the look of the RS6 much better than the current face lifted E class Smiley


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    For me exactly the opposite - plus here in Switzerland there are so many Audi A6's and RS models it's booooooring...

    I would definately go for a E63S Wagon - just have to wait for the first big depreciation - they use to have quite a big hit in the first year or two. Let's wait n see


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    No rs6 in usa, but they are available in NZ, only $160 usd...  In usa, 2012 2wd e63 wagons are 78-85 usd so at 106 usd might as well go 2014!  Bjoern, i wish it was 2016, and 2014 e63s wagons were depreciated!

    the reason for an suv is ground clearance when off road, crossing railroad tracks, etc.

    For old dogs, they just cant jump that high any more.....it used to be such easy ballet, theyd zip up into our suvs seats


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    Slightly used but almost new AMG models are often bargains over here in Germany. I had been offered a one year old C63 AMG sedan with only 8k km for 50k EUR flat. Ouch. Also most AMG models, with the exception of the G-class and the SLS maybe (the new A class seems also to keep it's value quite well for now), seem to loose 30-35% of their initial MSRP value the moment you put a license plate on them. 

    An AMG Mercedes would be my first choice for a somehow "affordable" powerful family car if I wouldn't be that crazy about Porsche.

    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    well, after reviewing other wagon options [again no rs6 avant here] I couldn't help it, we can now carry all three dogs around in the new white 4wd e63 s amg wagonwink  it should be here in a couple weeks.  the ones sealers have ordered are selling out but i did find one with bang n olefson stereo, and didnt want to order one, since all i would change is the burl from ash, and the beige interior does not include carpets [still black]  which means no advantage with white and yellow dog hair...  $112k us for a new, and 15k miles 2013 is $87k, and 4.5k m 2012 is $82 k so they're holding up here.  so why not get the 4wd 2014?  pix to follow on arrival

    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    obviously not - it seems to be something with the insurances...yes


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    Thanks Guys,

    It's absurd as we know but superbly so!!!kiss  The sound when you start it is the first clue.....

    If everyone is alive in February, maybe everyone can run to Stanford for parents weekend...  More to follow as we try it out.


    Re: 2014 awd e63 wagon

    The Bang and Olefson system  is superb; just did a comparo same CD with the Burmeister in the 991 both fantastic systms with fat bass beyond belief and clear across the spectrum, and i can even figure out the control for it in the amg which i was worried about having that i drive controller thing.
