the roll bar was probably to hold the body together.

Fairly new... parked in front of my house.. No idea whose car it was, or who they were visiting.. This is Mercedes' version of an M3 (sort of)
White with a black roof (carbon fiber or transparent.. .didn't really take time to look)
#11207 of 11398 Fusion and Impala
Sep 22, 2013 (3:58 pm)
the Impala was out on the road, and I think the first I have noticed in the wild.
Fusion not new, but I got to check out the sticker (it was in my neighbors driveway, and is a demo since he is a Ford salesman). Not bad looking. It was an SE. nicely equipped, with basically everything I needed (power drivers seat, moonroof, XM, alloys). Sticker was about 27.5K. This was a 1.5l model (odd, I thought the small engine was 1.5l).

The largest engine, NA 2.5 is base, 1.5(2014) and 2.0 turbo engines are upgrades.

Saw a new MDX with the zillion lights - looks bigger than the previous model.

Audi SQ5, there's some great sounds coming out of that one, and man did that thing move.
Fiat 500L - "The Italians are coming!"
More than a dozen new MDX's
Audi R8 Cabrio in white - Gorgeous
Couple of refreshed Volvo S60's with the new nose and flashy wheels. Classy looking car...
New BMW M6 - Sounds like the Forth of July if you are lucky to hear one at WOT...
(2) new Infiniti Q50's, both silver
A couple of new Lexus IS which the online pictures do ZERO Justice to, they look really slick in person. Best looing in the class, followed by the Q50 and new 3-series IMO
Mini Paceman, 2-door AWD
Tons of new Subaru Foresters, and a few of the revamped Outbacks with the proper round foglights out front.
Sep 23, 2013 (5:03 am)
but still a crazy sight:
"Gentleman's express" Mercedes Benz S-klasse, V12. Only this one was flat, and I mean like Charcoal black, with black lettering, black anodized wheels and exhaust tips. This one also had full LED lighting at the front and rear, and those custom Quad pipes out the back made wonderful noise.

Stopped by the local MB dealer to ask about the E250 - they didn't know when any were coming in. They did say CLA will be in on Wednesday, but all are spoken for. New S is due in November. Saw a GLK250 Bluetec on the lot, being inspected closely by a middle aged couple. There was a nice E63 on the floor, loaded, 116K MSRP.

One Black and one in a salsa red color which was probably the best one I've liked so far.
I do wish they offered a manual with the AWD like Audi and BMW do. Or even the Acura TL...

Blue color seems to be popular. Saw one without tinted windows, and then one with tinted windows 5 minutes later.
Seems to have jumped out of the gate pretty fast.
