I've looked at them several times, but they just don't do it for me. Kind of like the WRX - something I want to like, but just can't.

I was going to ask him that. He seems to be a BMW fan so I don’t think he would anyway. Makes for good fodder though for the reality show he and Belgium have going on here.

My wife and I really arenít fans of most of their line up but we love this thing. Great sounding last of the German V8s with plenty of power, interior super comfy and roomy enough for a family of three. A lot of fun on the street. Not much not to like except the partial alcantara steering wheel. Easy enough to change out though for a full leather one.

Something about that MB interior I just don't like

Plus MBs similar to BMWs seem to cost more

And, I'll admit it, total BMW fanboy here!

I will never forget an old Road & Track magazine review of the 944 Porsche which said "the interior appears designed to be cleaned out with a garden hose and a scrub brush"....I have always found the interiors of MB and Audi to be without soul and passion.

It's news from a different perspective and more ''informative'' than one or two other sites which are just there for show.

Autosport and Auto Motor und Sport are the gold standards. That and the official F1 sites. Planet F1 is pretty good and a few others. GPBlog is laughable. Another perspective = propaganda.

Dedicated RB fans are leaving in droves because of the foolishness since the British GP. Horner and Marko are an embarrassment and a blight on the sport. It has never been more apparent than now.

How is the weather, my friend?

I think you may be confusing that with when 85% of Dutch tv fans switched off their tv's in disgust at hammy's criminal move on Max.

Criminal move? You are a victim of propaganda. Max was partially at fault. Jog on.

Your comment is very doubtful . Because all we can see is 'Orange at the tracks ..
I think HAM's mind is losing it completely with his BS comments in every GP ...
With his latest political BS , he attacked Hungary aggressively ! He should shut his big mouth ASAP !
And he lost a lot Merc fans with his Dirty Crime Trick at Silverstone !

The weather over here is cloudly with rain showers and wind .
But nothing like the 200 mm of rain that we got in 24 hours during the floods .
Earlier today I saw videos regarding the Arizona floods ...

It's 'Orange my friend ...
