Okay, I confess: I've never driven an E430.<br><br>
<br><br>
Since the E55 starts out life as one, I'd be interested to hear anyone's experiences of the car compared to the fire-breathing AMG.<br><br>
<br><br>
I'm guessing that the ride quality is vastly different, as is the handling, and of course it's down on power. But by how much? The book figures point to a second's difference between the two cars in the 0-60 spring, but I'm wondering if the E430 has considerably less thrust at higher speeds.<br><br>
<br><br>
Just being inquisitive :)

I have driven the 4matic E430 and it's not a bad car. Its narrower tires don't follow road irregularities as much as the wide Michelins on the E55 but overall, I find the E55 of better value with all the options as standard and its superior performance and resale value..
