Thank you for the compliment. (more)

The new command will be released on October and so far, all orders have been delayed. I was planning on replacing my E420 for the new E55 but the wait is too long. I was informed of a 7-8 month but they cannot give a specific date since there is a pretty long wait list for it. Anyway enjoy the Forum.<p>: Hi All!<br>Firstly, i would like to thank Frank for an awesome MB forum... <p>I was also wondering if any one has a 2001 E55 on order?\<br>I have a '01 Silver with charcoal/grey interior, parktronic, Comand,<br>Climate Seats on order.<p>Also, heard that those that have ordered COMAND for the '01 models will <br>have to wait since production is delayed...

Pretty much same as your except went with the Charcoal black seats instead of the two/tone Charcoal/grey. I saw the Grey..it is actually almost white and looks a little strange in combo with the black. If it were a darker grey like Lexus uses it would look in in the two tone.<p>Also, this is the last year (2001) for the current model. 2002 will have some changes (I saw the spy photo). They are going to change the headlights (they look much better) and make it look a little more muscular (IMO). Might even up the HP on the engine a little. I am going to call my dealer (I am 6th on the list now) and have them move me to the 2002 (first on list). I can wait...no hurry. I just don't want to get my 2001 in FEB or so and then see someone driving a 2002 later in 2001 (probably Sept/Oct.).<p>Anyway, good luck. It is hard waiting isn't it?<p>Larry

You guys are sooo lucky. (short)

Unfortunately, I just got my 430. I don't think the other half would understand. Maybe you guys can give me a good excuse.<p>Here's one I thought of :<br>"The model we got is a lemon. MB is coming up with the new E55 which is much more solid and has more power and options than what we have."<p>I don't think this will work though. I can hear her now saying "You paid this and that for the car. Just bring it to the dealer and it should be fine" with her face all red (she's Irish BTW)<p>TIA,<br>John430<p>: : Hi All!<br>Firstly, i would like to thank Frank for an awesome MB forum... <p>I was also wondering if any one has a 2001 E55 on order?\<br>I have a '01 Silver with charcoal/grey interior, parktronic, Comand,<br>Climate Seats on order.<p>Also, heard that those that have ordered COMAND for the '01 models will <br>have to wait since production is delayed...

Just noticed this website and comments on the E55. Mine is a 2000 with Command. MB is having problems with Command in the E so that is delaying this option. With respect to the Climate Seats, they are a huge joke. I already had, and sold with the E55 opportunity arose, a 2000 S500 with all options. It had the Climate seats as well as the massage seats. A total waste of money. The seats only circulate interior air and do not cool. Since your body presses against most of the holes, only those along side your body emit anything. And, what they emit is so minimal that most can't feel anything. Don't waste your money! I leave for Germany next Sunday for a week visiting MB and AMG as part of GAT (German Auto Tours). I've done both MB and AMG three times but this should be more of an in depth tour. Good luck on your E55. It's my 18th MB and decidely the best!

white and black interior

This is for all E55 people<br>the white and black interior is the <br>best in the world and the E55 is not an<br>E55 if it does not have the white and black<br>interior!!!<p>Also how can all you prove that you realy<br>have an E55 AMG. If you do than why are you<br>here writing this stuff?
