Had delivered my new 2001 E55 a couple of weeks ago. This is my third AMG, previously owned the C36 & C43.<br>I am impressed by the looks and preformance, although my intial impressions are the car is not nearly as sporting to drive as the C43. The AMG engineers have taken away the communicative tight feeling of the previous AMG models. And Automobile Magazine lastest issue discusses the CL%% and S55 with the same impressions.<p>
