I see the appeal it has on people. 

I just dont see the sex of it. (sex-appeal)  Yes. I do not like it. I acknowledge its sexiness, it just does not do anything for me. 

I acknowledge its performance credentials. I respect those. I just wouldnt buy one. Even if I had money. If I was married into wealth and my father-n-law gave ME a dowry, Id tell him thanks! But Id trade-it in for a used 1996 Dodge Viper GTS  when he wasnt lookin'.

YEAH!

Even with that shoddy build quality. Look at those headlights. OUCH! Out of line they are!  But there is a reason why I mention the Viper of the 1990s. Something about a merger of equals. And yes! I DO prefer a 1996 Viper GTS over a 2018 M-B AMG GT. 

Any day, every day!
