The BMW is obviously handicapped by the base model 17's with shitty Dunlops, while the Benz was on 18's with Continentals, and the 300 on Goodyear F1's.

Depending on how old one is AND/OR how addicted to speed is will determine how much the SRT-8 should be on the common purchase list of luxury sedan prospects. To me, the MB E5xx NA and BMW 550i are fast enough to keep even folks who own 10-second street projects happy AS LONG AS ITS USED FOR DAILY DUTY. Add in the panache and I know the SRT-8 (even the 300 SRT-8 looks tough and crisply well done) trails a lot from the standpoint of sitting in it with friends/girlfriend/co-workers/etc.

However, if the wife says to get rid of the project car and you're still speed addicted...one cannot beat the SRT-8 sedan.

The SRT-8 reminds me of a cheap e55 AMG. I have never driven an SRT8 but I have driven an E55 and they are insane.

I like the seats in the SRT-8. What the going price on a used SRT8? I think it would be a great car to own if it had a good reliability record.
