The only way that I could possible love this car is if I had never owned a 2008 version.
The "ecco" drive system is a bust.
Luxury sports sedans with this much power should not have to be coaxed out of the starting blocks.
Add to all of this the fact that I have to add a quart of oil every other month and I'm so mad at MB that I could holler!.
Why would you take a perfectly fine luxury sedan(2008-2010) and ruin it like this.
I'm also tikced off at the three delaers who told me that there was major differences between the '08 and '11.(I live in a smaller market and none of the local dealerships had a car I could drive prior to purchasing the '11).
Future S-63 buyers--Save your money!
Go back to the 6.3L engine, dump the "ecco" system and stop messing with perfection>
