What’s 180K between friends?

(Thanks for the Guest Photo). Sounds like a lot for a car, but not in car crazy Munich. Just wait til you hear the description of the S600 – with Distronic Plus Adaptive cruise control that automatically maintains your chosen following distance, (ABC) Active Body Control to counter roll overs in aggressive maneuvers, and even seats that warm, cool and massage. 510 horses sends it from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds (a description that has no relevance in Germany where everyone drives much faster). That’s not a car, it’s an experience. This is just one of many Mercedes showrooms in Munich, including the huge Mercedes showroom at Donnersbrucker.

A lot of money ... between friends or enemies, makes no difference. It's still a lot of money. Personally I can't see a reason for this kind of extravagance and I think my attitude would be the same even if I could afford to buy one.
