2016 Edition 1 - Loved it!

I had the pleasure to test-drive a 2016 Edition 1 yesterday. I loved it!
I loved it so much, I've decided to sell my 2014 Brabus and get one. Message me for pricing and details on my 2014 Brabus if you are interested.

Every time somebody gets a new 453, I become envious all over again.

Here's what I liked about the car. It's more refined, the the extra horsepower and whoosh from the turbo make it sound fun when you get on the gas. The transmission is better, no more herky jerky, however you can feel it shift because it's not a CVT, so you still get the charm of feeling gears. I took the Edition 1, which comes with the sport suspension, through a tight curve at 60mph and it hugged the road perfectly. I didn't have to break. I was very impressed!

No question about it, the 453 is a vastly improved car! I now have +700 miles and every time I drive my 453 I can't believe I'm in a smart.

I want to try and sell my 2014 Brabus first. Trade-ins are really low, if I can get a bit more by selling it outright, it would be worth it. I can sell it for less than a dealer would resell it, so the next buyer would get a better deal and so would I.
