Well, unfortunately the wife didn't approve so no new beautiful boat for me. I could've stayed on that boat the whole show though.

Compromise? Get real. Buy her an E63 cabrio or SL65 and get what you want.

So $101,000 more for the upgraded 525 package? Something doesn't make sense. And $270,000 for a boat that will maybe do high 80's is crazy talk.

A sweet ride no doubt. I checked it out last night. seems like a good deal, but I'm not well versed enough to really give you a qualified answer.

Yes overall formula is doing better BUT only because of its cruiser side of the business. The fas tech line is just as bad as any other production boat. Plus they are way over priced in todays economy. Especially when you can get way more for your money in a larger faster used boat. Un fortunately the fas tech line is outdated....and I bet money formula continues not to update it.
