    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    Audi Q8 doesn't look bad either, imo.


    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    Audi Q8 is good looking too, in this class. But nothing from BMW qualifies and Mercedes are just passable.

    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    reginos:

    Yes, the Cayenne coupe looks really good. In profile the pointed nose combines well with the sloping rear, more than in other SUV coupes that the coupe design looks like an afterthought.

    I saw one in Lava Orange with Sport Design Paket with black painted accents and it looked really special.

    I saw the Cayenne Coupe live again and no, it doesn't look good. None of these "Coupes" looks good, with the exception of the Urus and the Q8 maybe (which still have a slightly different rear).

    The Coupe form factor just looks ridiculous on a SUV and even if some manufacturers have improved the design (BMW with the X6), it still looks weird.

    Also, before choosing the GLC 63 S AMG SUV to replace our E63 S, I looked at a very nicely optioned Coupe my dealer had in stock as well. Especially the Performance seats would have been something I really wanted to have in the GLC because they are great. Unfortunately, the head room and the luggage room in the Coupe are a joke. My son is 1,87 m and hits the roof with his head. Smiley Luggage room? Not even two middle sized suitcases fit, no way. Smiley

    So what's the point of getting a SUV if the rear passenger compartment is reduced in size and the luggage room is a joke? Doesn't make any sense.

    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    GLC 63 S AMG arrived at dealer, car needs to be prepped for the Wednesday delivery, including all the latest software updates and mounting winter wheels. 

    Summer tire is Continental SportContact 6, which has won in the Sport Auto comparison test.

    The winter tire is also a very good one, the Michelin Alpin 6, which has excellent braking and traction reviews due to a new technology used by Michelin. 

    I just wish the car had the Performance seats...the standard seats take a couple of months until they are soft enough not to cause back pain.

    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    Congrats, enjoy the car. Nice understated exterior, not so keen on the MB interior though, begins to look outdated against the competition...

    Congrats!

    You're so lucky to have these kinda leases with top German brands, where most of us can only dream of getting such deals laugh

    Yeah, I kind of missed one of the best deals of all: My dealer just told me that they had 30(!) brand-new G63 AMG ("old" model) for 1200 EUR per month for 12 months, a special lease. No initial payment. With the option to continue it for the same amount. Cars had the same options, just different colors, each car worth around 180k EUR.

    True but the facelifted GLC has the latest MBUX entertainment system, newest infotainment tech, also the car has the latest driving assist systems, so very modern tech. Car will stay with us only two years, unless I fall in love with it and buy it. Smiley Right now, the value of these cars isn't great, my dealer had a used one with 9000 km (new price around 120k) for 77k EUR. Ouch.

    Funny: Neither me or my wife are/were interested in an EV of any kind right now. Smiley Things could look different in a couple of years of course.

    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    Congrats RC!

    I have to be honest, I am not a MB fan. I have mine S 63 amg cab for 6 months and still can't fall in love with MB cars. 

    Obviously you are more in love - so enjoy every moment.

    Congrats.


    Re: Bye bye E63 S AMG

    congrats to the new ride ! Hmmm, you leave the model designation on the car - I mean, it is obvious that the exhaust alone shows a powerful car, however, stealth mode in your neighborhood ?

    S 63 Cab is too big and too heavy I'm afraid... Very comfort oriented ride. Smiley

    I am not in love with these cars (I am in love with the Urus Smiley) but I'm not a fan of the Cayenne (anymore) because it is way too expensive (lease) for the performance it offers and for a business car, the AMGs are perfect. Reliable, fast, fun to drive (of course not comparable to a real sportscar) and...cheap to lease. Perfect business/family cars.

    My number one is still the Urus though, no doubt. Smiley

    I am not talking about performance or price, just how the car interacts with me. How I feel when I see the car, how it feels to own such a car.
