It sure is... '03 E55 with the V8 Kompressor engine. How did you know? Was it the black wood trim?

Ah yes. I love the E63 but the 55 is an absolute torque monster!

Good observation, but are kilometers. I think that I will keep this car for 4 more years, until my son is 16yo and he can drive it.

Even Better! My 15yo son will be learning to drive in the car my wife bought when he was born! A 2003 Toyota Highlander, with 207k miles! Hondaís & Toyotas, like Rolexes, last a long time when you take care of them!

Absolutely not, lol. I drive a 1974 Chevy Pickup truck that I inherited from my dad. This truck is my daily. I drove it in its original condition for a few years before fixing it up. I've pretty much fixed and replaced everything on the truck. I removed the 350 and put in a 383. The t-case and transmission have both been completely rebuilt from the ground up. I added a 4" lift with 35" tires. I sanded it down to metal and repainted it and added a kick ass skull and lightning bolts decal on the hood. I could go on...

Still, I feel as if it doesn't fit my Rolex. A shotgun in the rear window is more of the stereotype. :)

I bought a Steinhart because I thought I could never afford my Sub. Don't do it man you'll never be happy.

Tesla Model 3 Performance and the SD43.
I guess I don't match.
Most Tesla owners probably have Apple watches :)
