Seriously? Buddy, this just comes across as money flaunting/waving.

But somehow that seems to obvious.

I wasn't flaunting I don't know much about German cars and I didn't know if the Benz was better than the BMW I figured a bunch of fellow Vette owners would know but I guess there just a bunch of guys that can't help anyone unless it has to do with a corvette which is why most car clubs think we're all dicks... And just to clear the air before I bought my Vette I had a cobra and pissed on plenty of u guys that thought u were fast!!! Just sayin...!! Just sounds like unfriendly people!!!

This just proved your arrogance.. This is a CORVETTE forum...I don't come here for advice about my boat or wife. The rules DO apply to YOU too...

Go to the correct forum and stop blowing wind. Have a nice day.

Well I disagree with the above posts. I dont think you are flaunting anything. even though this is a Corvette Forum it's still a car forum. You're asking car guys for car advice at the end of the day. I would get the benz I think it's amazing vehicle. Its also better looking than the bmw imo. Good luck and enjoy! Sounds like some of the members above have a bit of jealously they need to work out. I drive an 06 corvette with some mods as thats whats in my budget. I dont see anything wrong with someone having something nicer or faster than I do if they can afford it.

Yep..... tough crowd here and it's sad but alot of people here think any other car besides a vette is a waste of time..... very close minded.

The CLS Benz is a beautiful car and is more attractive looking than the 5 series BMW..... However the BMW is going to deliver a more exciting drive and be a bit sportier from a driver's standpoint. Also the backseat of the CLS is limiting in terms of space/headroom. If your buying for looks then go with the Benz, if you are looking for a car that will be somewhat exhilarating to drive get the BMW. I would suggest a good test drive of both cars. If you have not looked into it yet I would also look at the Audi S6 and S7

You may want to check into maintaining warranty after a tune. Automakers have been adding security to their ECM code to verify if it has been modified from stock.

This is definitely true..... I spend quite a bit of time over on the Audi boards and alot of guys are getting flagged for tuning. Even GM can tell if a car has been tuned (even if flashed back to stock).

I can't decide on a Jet, should I get the Lear 45 or the Gulfstream G150. Both jets are around the same price and with a few mods should fill my needs. Lol I think I covered the basis..
