Point taken...I did however specifiy mostly older ones like the 124 and 126 for example....or most any with traditional coil/shock suspension. These cars with ABC are marvelous....but how many owners of these cars do you think actually make the tires do their work around a corner? I'd say the vast majority of new Benz owners are rich, decrepit old farts that do 55 on the highway as I have seen one too many times.

Best example: Going down the highway and things start slowing down, brake light domino effect going on, people start moving to the left.....get up to the problem: Old fart wearing a visor doing about 10 under the speed limit in a brand new metallic blue R129 SL600 (!) with polished 2 piece AMGs on it. Any idea how badly I wanted to choke this dude??
