I haven't seen a car site with more haters and ignorant information about performance. Wheels on this thing are amazing.

I guess haters gonna hate.

I agree that the wheels are gorgeous.

Please explain your non-ignorance about performance. The bigger the drop, the better the handling? I've never seen a car with a 3" drop that handles better than stock unless we're talking about a very smooth track. I'd be very interested to see how this handles the Nurburgring. I wonder how predictable it is at the limit.

Sebring is anything but a smooth track and I've been on it with an E46 M3 on KW coils that was barely clearing the ground and it handled like a dream. Now the coils definitely weren't the only suspension upgrade but it still handled close to how I imagine a touring car would.

From reading your post, the Benz seems like the logical/obvious choice. Unless you REALLY don't like Benz, it fits your criteria perfectly.

Those be some uuuugggllllyyyy rims. But wow they're light, that's just simply amazing.

The drop looks good too. An un-dropped performance car looks kind of wrong to me.
