anyone got one ? and if so is it any good ? Heard there are traction problems with it burning much rubber whilst starting from rest,also reports that its very 'sterile' with its electronic steering and brakes ?
I am seriously considering getting one and just need some feedback.

Unbelievable car ! Picking up my 03 E55 on Saturday ! Cannot wait, heard the handling is excellent and probably the most advance ride yet for MB. Will post some pics over the weekend. Silver w/ash..loaded :)

E55

Hi,

I am considering getting a Kleemann supercharger for my CLK55, but I am concerned about price and warranty.

I am leaning towards a new E55.

How much did the car sell for. I have been told over sticker here on Long Island.

What kind of 1/4 mile times are you expecting?

The car is fantastic, price is at list depending on options, did not pay over list. Very fast and excellent handling. Certainly a wolf in sheep's clothing as Road and track claimed. Its fun, good luck !

Hey there Steve,

If you don't mind, how much is your monthly payments on this car. I can't decide if I should go for the E500 or E55[?]. I can only go up to $800 on monthly payments.

No payments on the car. However, I understand from the website that depending on options can range from $1000-$1400. per month. You can build the car at MBUSA.com and check. Good luck !
