Post new C55 owner

Hello all,
I purchased a 2005 C55 in December. One owner trade in on new E63.
Originally I was looking for a 911 but when I saw this car and then drove it I was hooked. I have owned many fast cars over the years from mustangs, camaros and firebirds, chevelles and a mercury. My last car was a 2003 evo 8 that I absolutly loved except for the fact that people could not believe the old guy was driving a car like that.
My car is pewter which I really like as it keeps a low profile until the hammer comes down. What a jewel that engine is! Build quality and fit and finish are fantastic. My only gripe is a rear wheel drive car w/362hp and no posi rear end? I guess the Germans think traction control is the answer. This will be my first upgrade.
Love the forum and glad to be here.
