I am a little late introducing myself. Sorry... I have been out driving.

So I jumped in with both feet when I purchased my new-to-me 2005 E55 AMG back in October. I have always been curious about MB and in particular AMG, but I have always decided against getting one, simply because there is no manual transmission offered. Well, I finally decided to take the leap and sacrifice with the auto transmission and..... I have no regrets. In the beginning, I did miss the control of shifting myself, but the amazing power of this car quickly made me forget about the stick and clutch. My 3 prior cars were 2008 BMW 535i, 2005 Audi S4, and 2002 BMW 330Ci. All were great cars and all with manual transmission, but there is nothing like mashing the gas pedal in this E55 !!!! Loving it so far.
