Are you kidding? I am sick of hearing stuff like this.

MT is dying, like it or not. IMHO, it's only good for bragging rights these days. "Oh look at me, I am a real man, and I drive a stick shift!"

It's much slower than modern DSG, or even automatics and not as efficient. Not to mention, pain in the butt to drive in the traffic.

How stable (and safe) is a cabrio with the top down with that much power?!?

I get the heebeejeebies driving a regular convertible at 90+mph, much less 200+mph. I'd prefer to drive that with a helmet all the time...

the s63 is to much in just about everything. I don't really see a point to it because if i wanted a sporty car, i'd buy a sports car, not a limo trying to be one. Its like the cayenne gts, it' cool that a giant suv or sedan can drive like a sports car, but if i wanted a sports car, i would just buy one
