I thought since I have posted so many negative items lately, mostly regarding the 2005 command, that perhaps I should share a positive experience I have recently had with my car. I don't know, maybee it's just me, but I do get a tickle out of the tremendous power this RENNtech SL600 has. Today on my way to work I was tooling along at about 70mph when I just decided to poke the accelerator a bit. Well let me tell you, I barely poked it and I was burning all kinds of rubber. Why, I could have burned the tires right off the wheels if I wanted to. That's right, burning the rubber "off" the wheels with a "touch" at "70" mph!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm really not a tire-burning kinda' guy. But the power this car has after my upgrade is nothing short of astonishing!! I have had many high preformance cars but none, and I mean "none" could hold a candle to this thing. The acceleration on this car is visciously fast yet smooth as silk. Totally controllable at all times but believe me, the accelerator is always treated with great respect. Any of you out there with SL600's should consider the upgrades. They are truely a value considering the tremendous improvements to HP and torque. I just love this RENNTech rocket-power!!!

Hmm... I dunno, I don't like the idea of modifying my car. It goes fine the way it is. If Mercedes had their own official option I would be willing to listen, but I guess thats what AMG was for.

By the way, how much HP and Torque do you get?

625-650hp and 790lbs of torque!! However, I would not do any modifictions unless your dealer will support them. My dealer is a Mercedes RENNtech authorized dealer and therefore there is no warrantee problem. Further Cxt, the gains for the SL55 are not that great since the car is already achieving maximum preformance levels due to the AMG modifications. RENNtech is best for the V12 600 where massive gains can be achieved for about $6,000 dollars. This is a great value when you consider HP & torque per dollar.

yeah... agreed. That's one of the reasons why I went for the 55 over the 600. There's no Renntech or official tuning companies here which will make good the warranty. But damn, those are impressive figures!

"Internal Radar"? He probably means the ECU...

My dealer reminds me of all my first dates. They always say NO. I wonder if I move, I might get a MB dealer to say yes to RENNtech.

A BETTER WAY TO CALL IT IS REMOTE RADAR AND LAZER PROTECTION SYSTEM. THE PASSPORT SRX BY ESCORT RADAR DETECTOR CAN ONLY BE INSTALLED BY QUALIFIED DEALERS. RENNTECH IS ONE OF THEM. TOM
