And its not like 5k. its more like... 1k overdue. i got the car with 174 and im at 180 now.... so in the last 2 months.... 6k miles.. and im not sure when the last owner changed. but oil looked brand new.
Changing oil is sooo 00's. It's the Ten's, baby, we don't do that kind of thing anymore.

Franklyn, it's 5000 miles, not a big deal, at all.

All 2011s from GM are supposed to be changed at 7500 miles.

And your guesses are way off, he said it's even heavier than the 540, so it's 4000lbs+, so it will be slow, eat up all kinds of gas, and handle terribly.

my car scared the crap out of me today. I was going around an uphill corner in 2nd gear and I accelerated and the transmission made a thunk noise and it popped out of 2nd.... it's the only time its done that, I hope it stays that way

Had you just shifted to second? Sometimes I'm clumsy and put it halfway in which is followed by a solid *POP* of the shift lever coming out of gear.

It's a mercedes.

I'm betting either an SL 5xx, or Some sort of E class AMG.

Not black, way overdone, can see all the marks, blends, scratches, and flaws with ease.

Burnt orange, gunmetal, dark blue.
