Well, I don't do alot of "around town", but I do get on the highway 2-3x
per week. My "other car" is an 03 AMG C32, so I am familiar with too
many sparkplugs, ridiculusly expensive tires and 8 liter's worth of
Mobil 1 0w40 synthetic oil changes. Part of my "bright idea" here is to
go from 2 vehicles back down to one. The $$ I save on the AMG's
insurance alone should balance things out [my agent also has a benz, and
my mechanic - who is also his mechanic, spilled the beans to him that my
car has ~400 hp].

To whoever posted it, I don't know about the lifetime powertrain
warranty, but it's not at a dealer, it's out in podunk nowhere...
