RE: More Videos back at you....

Buy that man a Deisel Passat! Sitting on the Autobahns, 110 and 130BHP turbodeisel Passat estates come charging past, hour after hour; they seem to cruise at about 110-120mph, all day.

It is handy to do more than 100, provided that your car can do it. I used to have an Alfa Romeo 75 (in the US called the Milano) and that would just clear 150 - but at 130 the low pressure of the air outside would suck the tops of the doors outwards! By contrast, all my mercs will sit at 110, and the AMGs will sit at 120-130.

It is a bit annoying to find that PD volkswagens and C220/270cdi's will go 150 miles further, 10mph slower, on 2/3rds of the fuel volume the AMGs will use, though...

London, right in the middle
03 CL500 (Black/Grey, 48k, Comand, 7GTronic, Keyless Go) 302 Bhp
01 E430 (Silver/Black, 112k, Comand, Lingua, 7 seats, tow...) 275 Bhp
97 SLK (40k, Yellowstone, partner's car!) 200 Bhp
03 A210 AMG (Black/Black, 63k, project rescue car) 140 Bhp

...I make that 917 Bhp...!

RE: More Videos back at you.... & "Video Editing"

There is a .AVI video at the bottom of the page - shows a great burnout [:D]

Many photos of some of their work as well.

Cheers, MBL

RE: More Videos back at you....

i think that Mercedes do not give it true power of their cars and decreases it on paper, several Mercedes which I know give more power to the bench of power than than Mercedes announces. The mb engine have more torque in the low turn it's a great advantage for this exercice, and the mb engine turn very slowly...
