i feel him. not that i'd be doing that but i simply cannot pull the trigger on the new AMGs due to the fact that they are all column shifts. i know the amg gt aint but trading my sls for it never crossed my mind (altho im a firm believer that new is always better)

even the new g truck has a column shifter... i was disgusted upon my test drive. i dont need the cup holders just gimme back the stick!

Using an automatic transmission shifter in the console is not "driving stick".

what year sls do you have. How is the reliability and how frequent is maintenance or repairs? I'm interested in a cls and give mercedes a chance but I dont know how they compare to lexus.

Nah what happens when you go from manual to automatic is you CONSTANTLY try to press down on a clutch that doesn't exist.

Right. Should have made it clear that i aint talm bout manual. Still my first and only experience with the column shifter was my parents old nissan quest besides the loaner s550 here and there so i just prefer somethin in the middle console even if its an electric shifter for an automatic tranny

The sls is most certainly not something u need to take into consideration if you thinkin bout giving merc a chance for the first time. I dunno if youre considering w219 or w218 or even the latest third gen cls but sls and w219 63 amg shared the same engine base and that was pretty much where the similarity stops. U can google the m156 engine issues but by the time w219 63 amg rolled out the infamous head bolt issue was taken care of. Aint sayin that was the only issue but that was a major one. As far as w218 63 amg i think the m157 engine is pretty reliable and sounds the best in a cls at least compared to its sister vehicle the e63 or even the flagship in the s63 but maybe not as good as in a g wagen for which besides the slight turbo lag i am pretty happy with after everythings considered. The merc’s in-house tranny leaves quite a lot to be desired tho. At least they dont break down like the getrac dct found in the sls... as far as the maintenance goes nothing catastrophic happened yet knock on wood but i dont think theres anything out there thats even remotely comparable to lexus when it comes to reliability. I just follow the periodic (not based on mileage) fluids changes to the tee and thats it. No extra preventative fixes yet but i put on relatively small mileage per vehicle so that has somethin to do with it to a certain extent. The consumable parts may be more expensive than some other brands of course but these aint maseratis or ferraris... but if im just talm bout maintenance and reliability, i still miss my first car which was a lex

I always wonder how many rappers try to rent a sports car and realize they have to choose a different one because they don’t know how to drive a manual.
