New Boy in Town

Hi all, from Cornwall, England where the liquid sunshine isn't very funny just now.

My car is a W211 2006 model E220 CDi Avantgarde Auto. Interesting to see the AMG bodykit upgrade info on the forum.

Got some issues with the car at the moment concerning handling at higher speed; you correct the steering to left or right and find yourself over-correcting and the car is all over the road - awful! So I've got the car booked into the local Merc Main Stealer (I mean Dealer) to replace camber adjust ment bolts and perform full 4 wheel laser and vehicle height alignment.

To the untrained eye, you can see the front wheels have collapsed slightly, i.e. they are going out at the bottom of the wheel.

The other thing is that although the SBC system isn't too noisy when it pumps up, it is a little annoying to hear it - hence I might get the suppression mod carried out.

So that's where I'm at.

Nice to meet you all
