E55 AMG Owner...

Hello team...

Shawn here...I bought a 2005 E55 AMG (RENNTECH Stage 1) last fall when I returned from Iraq...I was a soldier (LTC) in 3ID and retired in FEB of this year.

It really has proven to be an awesome car...much different than anything we have ever owned. We have a Lotus Elise and an S2000 and the AMG is the antithesis to those cars. All torque all the time, and frankly way faster than either of them, although they have their plusses and minuses too.

My Q is, I am bitten by the AMG bug and am looking to get a used 2005 SL65 AMG this winter...I have read all about it and seen the videos etc...but I am looking for some real world feed back on how it is to drive. I get the impression that everytime you hit the gas your tires are breaking loose...Can any one fill me on the real deal?
