All About the E50 ///AMG and E55 ///AMG

I didn't feel there was alot of info out there about the E50 so I decided to compile all the info I could.
I recently bought all the magazines I could on german Ebay. Including the First E50 road test and Auto und sport did a E50 Vs. E55 Shoot out. I also recieved a magazine with the E50 long term test and the E55 First Drive test. I'll begin scaning these soon for my new website www.210amg.com

I got alot of this info from the Deuschland AMG Owners Club.
