After owning a 2003 Corvette Z06 with a few modifications (about the only thing on the road faster than this Benz), I got used to using a forum to discuss the cars. I was glad to find a forum specfically for the E55. I had a few questions (if they are already on here, just let me know and I'll search).

1) Has anybody done the Rentech chip/supercharger pulley mod? Any track performance figures (1/4 mile)?

2) Some how this car got out of the factory with every option minus Distronic (intentially left out) and the Lighting package, which is downright ridiculous that Mercedes lets a $90,000 car go out the door with halogen lights. I have found what looks like good replacements for around $500 from HIDEXPRESS.COM, anybody have any experience using these lights? Is it even possible to get the factory 319 package installed? If so, at a reasonable price?

3) This might be off topic, but has anybody used a laser jammer (Blinder or Escort both make them). Is it a user friendly install in the E55?

4) What is the fastest way to launch this car? After toying around a bit on the street, I am guess it is using the traction control, putting it in Sport and letting the car shift itself.

5) Looks like Andreas signed my engine, how many custom engine builders does AMG have, and anybody else have an Andreas engine?

Thanks!

Hi Robby,

I don't know anything about performance mods, sorry, but I do know where you can get a good set of original MB W211 bi xenons for your car. Email [email protected] for a set. He sells them for a reasonable price - and depending on where you are located, he can even install them for you and reprogramm your car for xenons present... for a little extra, that is.

greetingz,

There was a 2004 E55 at my local dragstrip last night and he was being very quiet about his modifications, but from what I could gather he had this stage one package. He ran a [email protected] He mentioned he's run 11.9s before.
