Yeah no I paid much more than 7k. Just seems like someone would ask more for that car but I may be mistaken.

Not if it's notorious for issues.. Nada says 8500. But I'm looking into a 99 e 55 now... if everything checks out this could happen

Is that the Arcus version?

Yes, it uses the same Forecast.io API as Arcus. The creators of Dark Sky built the service that Arcus is leveraging.

My dad had a 99 E55 AMG, buy it.

Just try not to get pulled over doing 140 in a 55 like I did. I was dumb when I was 17.

To explain it better, it happened in PA. I was driving on a road patrolled by county police, and in PA, county cops do not run radar. They do the speed traps, pacing, stuff like that.

I was traveling north and the officer was traveling south, obviously she knew I was way over the limit because I passed her at something close to 200mph I would assume. She promptly turned around, sped up and caught up to me as I was only speeding through that one section, conveniently enough.

This was all at night and I didn't even see that I passed her (maybe because it was dark, maybe because I was hauling ass). She pulled me over and I immediately knew in my gut she caught me, but she couldn't tell exactly how fast I was going because she wasn't stationary and doesn't run radar. She comes up to about my B pillar, peers around it looking at me (she looked scared shitless) and goes "do you know how fast you were going?" I replied with a chuckle and "nope". She grabbed my information and went back to the car.

She ended up writing me for a 71 in a 55 (highest points violation without a wreckless charge, and she couldn't write wreckless because she knew I knew she couldn't prove that I was traveling that fast, as per what she told me). That was probably the lowest point of my driving record and there's a reason I don't drive like that anymore.

I know we have a few people from down there. I hope everyone is staying safe and no one has lost anything.

Got word from my chief to start getting a crew together. We are on rotation for the next strike team to head down there if the situation doesn't improve.

Alright Cruzer555.

Considering I beat $1500 in fines and a 3 month license suspension in court in April, I would have brought it to court, could have had it lowered down to 10 over. But I'm the type of person who will litigate for $50, so for you it may not have been worth it lol

I counted my blessings that I didn't actually get cited for what I was actually doing, and paid the fine. Back then, and even still not, I really couldn't justify litigating for something I already got an enormous deal on.

He was 17. I'm assuming he also had a trial at dinner he had to worry about.

Shoulda-coulda-woulda.

^^This.
