Congratulations and welcome to AMG Section!

Whats the mileage? anyway here's what I recommend but not an upgrade mainly for 7yr old car (depends on what service maint. recently performed) maintenance issue; AT fluid change, all filters, air, cabin, fuel filter, sys. oil, spark plugs, serpentine belt; all fluids, brake fluid, power steering, coolant...etc, check all the above.

Upgrade your suspension to H&R Sport spring & Biltein Sport shocks; x-pipe; resonatore delete.

Cheers,
JOE55

I went right to work..

I removed my resonator today, sounds so much better.. not going to take off the cats for the xpipe (not worth the smog deal).
I will check out all the maintenance stuff though, sounds like its a must..

Correct me if I'm wrong, but many people with E55s replaced resonators with x-pipes.

you are correct.

Dabador, get rid of those straight pipes and put in the proper X-pipe, replacing resonator without X-pipe won't give you any power just sound.

on another note, gorgeous VERY rare white/ two tone E55! there can't be more than a handful of those in the world.

A few suggestions. Sell the chrome wheels get the silver monos, looks much better. Get rid of the headlight chrome rings, and drop the car a tag.

An absolutely gorgeous color. White is rare, and two tone is rarer. And with all due respect, I have to agree with Dr. C36; anything but the chrome rims. Silver would look best.

Bose sound system should be called "blows" sound system. I am currently looking for a stereo upgrade too! I have never really been impressed with over-priced bose stuff. There's a lot more bang for the buck out there, I'm sure.let me know what you go with?
