A car is worth whatever you are willing to pay for it. The KBB, black book, edmunds, etc. are just guides. The most important thing is you are happy with your purchase.
I eat anything RAW!

For a stock road legal car, this is fast by any definition of the word. Any sort of performance advantage a competing car may have (C63, M3, RS4/5, CTS-V etcetera) is marginal at best in comparison. You would have to upgrade to a six-figure supercar to get an obvious performance difference. Your sense of perspective is a bit off.

The price seems a bit high to me. But with that said, you can't take the money with you when you're gone, so you might as well spend it while you're here.
