    I have been driving Uber X for a while now, and I am thinking to invest in a Uber Black or Uber SUV Vehicle.
    I would like to hear any feed back from anyone who has any knowledge on this subject.

    Since you will need your limo license and commercial insurance, I'd say it 'might' be worthwhile but only if you didn't limit yourself to Uber. Hook up with a limo company as an IC, or drive independently. I don't know if this is feasible, I'm only speculating.

    The Mercedes-Benz Greenway dealership has a Maybach in stock for $237,000. Make a great UberBlack car

    It is my undestanding that the Maybach has been replaced with the Mercedes S Class Pullmann. Donald Trump just traded his Maybach for an S Class Pullman and I think he is
    driving for UBER Black whenever he has time in beetween his campaign meetings and presentations.

    I am a black/suv driver, luckily i have been able to secure a regular client and haven't driven uber since july 4th. Most of the requests are select. While black and suv requests do pay more there are not many requests. I don't recommend investing in a vehicle, insurance, licensing , unless you have some steady clients first. I would try driving for a limo company and trying that out.

    Thanks, I appreciate the info. I noticed that Black Car/Suv drivers wait long periods of time
    to get a request a the Airport.
