What should I get?

I cannot decide on a daily driver. I have a 600awhp 03 Mitsu. Evo for fun, so that is not the issue. I need a new professional car and I have narrowed my search down to the C55 AMG or the E55 AMG. They are both great cars, with great performance. Which would you get as a daily driver and why? Thanks for the help.

RE: What should I get?

I would go for the E55. Why? Because it's bigger and faster. I find the C55 a little too small.

Seems like E55 is the way to go so far. Owners, I am interested in your opinions before I sign.

RE: What should I get?

you should post in the W211 E55 AMG forum for more owner feedback. The differences are that the C55 has a 5.5L naturally aspired engine and the E55 has a supercharged 5.5L engine. you can see the different specs on http://www.mbusa.com/index.do If I had the choice I would definately take the E55, don't get me wrong, the C55 is a great car, but the E55 has more power, more room and of course a higher price.

RE: What should I get?

I checked it out thanks. I guess the E seems like the way to go. Do people look at the C55 as an entry Benz?

WHO CARES.

If you like it that's all that matters. Don't let other people make a decision of what car you should get.

Go take both for a testdrive and whatever you like better you should get.

Freude am fahren!

I only posted because I do not know much about these rides and I respect people who have opinions about this subject. I will definatly test drive both, but atleast this poll gets me going in a direction. Thanks again.

Wait Wait! I know this thread has been on for a while...

But definately think what your about to do. There will be replacement models of the 2 Mercedes in 2007/2008 and also there are many other fantastic options including.

-BMW M3
-Audi RS4
-BMW M5
-Audi RS6
-BMW (E90) M3 saloon (2007)

Even though the Benz's are fantastic[:D][8D]

I'm not sure if there are going to be 65 AMGs, but there is 63 AMGs I think.
