Apologies for my typo....
That's why I asked about the tach...
You said you had the standard 7K tach then you post a pic of a Euro gauge cluster with a non standard AMG tach dial.
I know far from everything..never claimed to..
Sorry if your alpha personality was challenged...
So you own the 1991 300CE-24 AMG ( VIN WDB1240511B611996 ) imported from Japan with the AMG guage cluster you pictured ?
1991 Mercedes-Benz 300CE
I thought you had a 1992...?
Stop fronting, at least you could post pix of your car's gauge panel..
You must be very young...LOL
You know what, forget it, I'll post anyway.
Let's get edumacated! :teach:
Here's a picture of my instrument panel that I took, just for you.
According to you, my tachometer is a non standard AMG tach, which is blatantly false.
Any MB M104.980 engine, which is the engine found in 90-92 300CE, 300SL, 300SEL, have a 7k rpm redline. Ask anybody, search ebay, search craigslist, you'll find the same tach found in any MB with this engine. If you read what I've written, without the clouded over-analyzing vision that you seem to be reading with, I said I have a tach with a 7k rpm redline.
That's a completely different tach than the 7k rpm (total) tach that you speak of.
So, if you still hold the belief that my tachometer is a non standard AMG tach then I'm flattered, thank you.
If you think I have an "alpha personality" that is getting challenged, please take a seat in your CLK, go for a drive and self reflect, because it seems like an all too familiar story.
In fact, I am very young and the way I was raised has taught me to show utmost respect for my elders, which you seem to be. So, with that deep in my mind, I will not retort with any snarky comments relating to age like has been shown to me.
As an aside, rarely do I ever put my car through its paces up to redline. My powerband, I've found, reaches peak power right around 6.5k rpm and that's where I shift.
Hopefully, with all this explained, you'll come to the realization that you've made a mistake. I just hope, instead of jumping straight to conclusion, you'll take into account that not everyone has the same knowledge and experience, which creates a sort of checks and balances. Let's use that checks and balances instead of petty posting. I don't post to aggravate or challenge anyone, I post my experiences because it's interesting
. In no way shape or form do I have a negative opinion about you (RBYCC), in fact, I find your widebody build and other endeavors inspiring.
Again, have a nice day.
