Hello all im based in the UK and recencently got myself a Brilliant silver 03 E55 AMG with one owner from new, full MB history and with 40k on the clock. After a run of BMW's the last one being a Z4 M coupe I decided that after the frankly shocking customer service from two BMW dealers that it was time for a change!.
I wanted comfort and speed...a lot of speed
and as ive never owned a merc before the E55 AMG fitted the bill
Early days yet but other than the supercharger cutting out when the cars hot....poss the intercooler water pump??! (its in my local MB dealer today for them to have a look) Im quite pleased so far and its growing on me the more I drive it, not as sporty as Id hoped like dare I say an M5 but lets face it how often can you drive fast? so as an all around car it does the job VERY well.
Will cruise quietly + comfortably and go like a 747 at take off when you feel the need
Ive planned a few "improvements", so far ive ordered a new grille to replace the one thats on there as its the type with the large mercedes star and I dont like it, far to much badge for my tastes!
Ordered a painted lip spoiler, but not sure if im going to fit it now!
Also got a set of gen E63 AMG stlye pedals....but not the foot rest/dead pedal as yet as my dealer's not sure how it fits!
Also on the look out for a set of 19" wheels, the CLS type 111 are top of my list at the mo.
And last but not least.....looking into an ECU/pully upgrade of which Kleemann's is looking the best option at the mo??.
Look forward to speaking to you all
