i have the same issue as i have run my 2006 SRT8 for nealry five years and now out of warranty i am still running it. i normally swap out after three. now at about 75,000 miles.
while they still dont import a right hand drive new SRT8 into the UK i am stuck. not a clue what to do. i am in the same camp here as the OP in that i just couldnt see myself in a boring new german car, no offense intended to anyone but zzzzzzzzz you are no one.
i am not embarassed to say i like a bit of "look at me", so what. the 300 SRT does that in spades.
i will say she is holding up well and still cheap (ish) to run in comparison with what else i own so although i know i need to change, fair play to her she isnt making me rush.
i would love a challenger SRT8 but no RHD, i would love the new 300 SRT8 but no RHD. Wouldnt want a CTS even if it was as not my look really.
what to do...ho hum....
even the merc 6.3 coupe doesnt excite me. it isnt muscle.

Hi understand totaly, in the last few weeks i have tried 730, 530d BMW, CLS and E class 320
A6, A8. even had a go of a last Saab 95(lovely but not many about)

my silver 300. 06 plate i have put 80k on in just under 3 years, bought with 17k on
Faults, cable rubbing on air con pipe, swile motor, front brakes, manifold cracked

so maybe the only option is to get a black one this time?

are the newer ones 08 onwards any different other than the interia?
are all the same issues there

Hi Paul

i can get a black 300 2008 33k on for about 11k

cant find anything else i want. the 730BMW looks like a spaceship inside with all the buttons
the 530 just boring.

so change if i find something i like, but not much choice. DB9 good but few years of that

not so much bothererd about newer, just the miles.

my business partners has the cls, used it a few times (dont like bending down to get in it ) lol

and i have a bad problem where i look at all the reviews about cars, which alot put me off, and most times the only things you read are the bad things, so think i got to stop looking a just get what i like ( black 300)


as i think they all have problems


regards

Leon

thanks all....putting off decision for another 6 months and sticking to the 300c.

The other option I thought of was buying classics I wanted in my teens and changing them every 6 months !

List include

1. Pre 1990 Honda CRX
2. BMW 80' 635
3. 1970's Datsun 260z
4. 1960's Volvo p1800 and

...5 the only car I would keep for more than 5 years...the Honda NSX!!!!!

Only downside is I do 15k a year and could be waiting a long on a hard shoulder for recovery (save for the Honda's which have the bullet proof vtec engines !)

Mrs thinks I am having mid life crisis !!
