Its gotten worse.

examples.

1. Top speed you've taken your E

Response: E430 sport: 185 stomping a corvette!

2. Should I get a e420?

Response: V6s are plenty, my car turns on the traction control when I stomp it at 35mph in a e320. The V6 pulls like a mofo.

3. Should I get a e420?

Question: Can the E420 do burnouts with both wheels. Im a young guy and burnouts are important. Am I gonna break anything?

Meh people do all sorts of things with their cars both good and bad in my personal opinion, it's their car they paid for it so I don't care.

You will have to talk to Mercedes and AMG about hotrodding Benzo sedans, they have been doing it since the early 70s. The 6.3, 6.9, 500E, C32, Hammer...

These are from the Mercedes Museum.

Sometimes they're blatantly honest...

"Looken to "pimp" my 94' E420. Any Idea's?"

***********************

All of that aside I agree -- and I've said it more than once: one of the great things about owning a car is you can decide how you want it and do with it what makes you happy. If driving a slammed air-bagged E class on 20s with an e-bay body kit, chrome fender flares and a trellis-style spoiler with a coffee-fart-can exhaust makes you happy, then go for it, just carry barf bags to hand out to those who don't share your styling, ahem, "finesse."

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

I make exceptions for those who come from countries so crushingly boring that this passes for entertainment:

YouTube - Collection of Mercedes Diesel Videos

I actually think it's kind of cool.

Oliver, you must be from the Wayne area then. lol.

I am looking to put an Eisenmann exhaust on my CLK 430, I think if I'm going to mod the car, then the mods should compliment the car, not cheapen it.
