    With my 2013 Cadillac CTS-V it scratched much more easily and the paint seemed very thin, on the Mercedes I've scraped up against a few times now and it does not get damage from a simple thing like the Cadillac did, it seems like the coat of paint is much more thick. Just my opinion though.

    Lol.

    Really solid argument there. I'm convinced. I'm going to shell out another fifty grand for an E63. F it I want mink fur for carpet and cheetah skin on the roof too.

    Moronic Humble Opinion. IMHO

Regardless of how many are sold,if you want a certain car they will build it for you. GM just stopped making the V8 in the sedan but still call a car with 100HP less as a V. You don't know what your talking about. Im happy with my Cts- V 2013 Sedan (not the 2014) but I did not want to spend another $30k for a German car that was just a bit better. But to be truthful,if I had the money I would go with A high end German car. Too say their cars are waterred down is plain stupid and your a hick from the country. And don't get me started on where its better to live as you probably have never been out of your own hick town bro.
    How did we become hicks for correcting your idiotic statments bro?

    BTW. What town in the large northern 51st state isn't a hick town?

    I had no idea Benzes were immune to scrapes and scratches. You'd think they would be marketing the hell out of a feature like that. I mean it all makes sense now, that's why I've never seen a Benz with a scratch in the paint.

    Oh wait, no that's wrong. I see Benzes with scratches in the paint all the time. I forgot this is 1997BlackETC's magical Mercedes that makes 100 HP more than stock with no mods, exists outside the bounds of JD Powers reports and can't be scratched. Carry on.

    C'mon. BAABOO. He deserved it after the first statement. We tried to explain its a common mistake and he just kept coming at the brick wall like a retard with a mission. 1997 is just being a typical troll who is trying to justify his over expenditure on a merc. He is harmless and been around a long time. This Canadian might hurt somebody. Apparently Americans are hicks. I'm personally offended. Cause my grandma was a half hick twice removed . So I'm at least 1/16 hick. And and that Canadian is just plain racist.

    Also he knows nothing about cars but like a squirrel with a nut he manged to buy a V. He's like our own Forest Gump.

    Can we keep um!? Please!?

    I promise ill feed him...

    Obvious trolling and a newbie descending to semicoherent personal attacks. Keep it going and we can turn this thread into a treatment for a new reality show on TLC.

    I think this thread should be stickied as well as being required reading as a prerequisite for anybody joining this forum from now on... you know, something like having to check the box indicating agreement to the terms of service, but in reality, it would mean having read every post in the thread.

    Best regards,

    I suggest the OP PMs Katie his concerns information including a VIN number of one of these Mickey Mouse Vs. Perhaps she can then inquire deep within GM for an answer but then never get back to him.

    Re: Gm is sometimes mickey mouse. There is no v8 556hp v. So why is it on their websi

    I was at a gas station this morning with my V and a guy came up asking me if my car was a stick and that he loves V's. He kept saying how 'bad ass' it looks asked me if I bought it new and where I bought it. Nobody ever came up to our late model MB and asked anything about it. I did have to go through 2 bottles of touch up paint because of constant scratches appearing all the time, the car was black. The crappy paint was nothing compared to a million electric problems (like I mentioned before many times) we had with the MB. Good riddance, absolutely enjoying my V!
