All I can say is thanks to all the people who have posted DIY information.
Since reading posts I have come up with solutions for:
Getting my tach and clock running.
Exhaust upgrade from the "Quiet Muffler Solution" to something more in keeping with this car.
I have yet to get the car up on the hoist and find out how much of the original AMG exhaust is left. Right now the car is either super quite or, if I push it, like a sack of hammers rattling around in the exhaust system.......ECH.
Sending the Becker back to the factory for an exchange or repair. Right now the sound is like UGH....I say to myself: "This is a quality product, it must have treble somewhere in the circuitry".
Check the $4000.00 brake job the last owner had done to the car two years ago. Right now there is a sound coming of the front brakes as if a person is using their finger to make a crystal glass ring. I suspect a dirty piston.
For the future, wheels and tyres, but there are already serviceable 16" wheels and tyres on the car so it's at the bottom of the list.
When going through the purchase ritual I over heard the last owner referring to the car as a "pig" lamenting how it was even sluggish changing lanes on the highway. This problem was quickly solved by the addition of 40lbs of air pressure to all tires. I was wondering why the tyre edges were burned off, mainly because the car was running on the tyre edges lol. Thirty pounds will not do it on tyres that say forty on the side wall.
That's all for now folks.
Happy motoring I'm of to dress my interior leather today. The interior of the car was covered in a layer of filth.
