I agree with you, they really should have a lower end V8 that competes with the Bmw 550i and Mercedes E550. The engine that is found in the escalade would of been perfect actually, 403 horses and would not cross shop with the CTS-V, which has more than 100 horses.

The E class is still a sweet ride though, I hope you are enjoying that baby!

That's actually an old sig pic of my 2010 E550 (I know, I need to update it), I got rid of that piece of garbage 3 months after buying it!! I had more problems with it. I now have a 550ix M sport.

You sold it after 3 months!?! Was it seriously that problematic?
How has the F10 been treating you?

So far, no problems at all with the CTS. Everything is seriously going perfect, I am really enjoying the ownership with this car.

Damnit! I voted for the X6 thinking it was "What car do you think is the ugliest", and now it gets a false vote chalked up for such a tasteless design.

If I had to drive one of these, I guess styling wise the CTS is the only one I wouldn't call all out "ugly", but as far as overall quality of engineering goes, I'd say the 5 GT has it (just don't step outside of it ).
