After 2 years of wonderful AMG ownership the time came to part company with my beloved C55, honestly, it's the best car I've owned by a country mile, the combination performance modification polished off an already great car, reliable and amazing to drive and a car I don't think I'll ever be...
Thought I would share this, I'm involved in 1/4 mile drag racing and pit crew for a couple of teams, this weekend was the UK Outlaw front wheel drive shoot out competition at Shakespeare county raceway.
Good friend of mine took the European FWD record 8.85 at 174 mph...

Late last year I took ownership of a C55 with a well documented history on this forum, previously owned by Charles Morgan.

For those that don’t know, I recently purchased Charles Morgan’s C55 AMG, while on the test drive Charles made it clear the front brake pads would need replacing (CLK63 upgrade) so I booked into PCS.

Recently took ownership of Charles Morgan C55, previously owned by tudu, I've mailed the site admin about the email/PM facility as my account doesn't seem to have this feature activated. Need to contact tudu as I would like confirmation which pads he used for the CLK63 front and SLK55 rear...
The car is the 203 (C55 AMG) I have identified what appears to be the SLK Space Master Vredestein 145/70/17 92P in the boot, I thought it would be an idea to check the fitment on the car and inflate it, well it fits over the rear SLK55 rear brakes but the onboard Merc mini compressor used to...
After some feed back for hot start problem,
2002 S320 CDI (W220)
Recent work in past 1000 miles
A service with additional work (Prestige Car Service :thumb:)
High pressure fuel pump
Fuel return lines (All replaced)
2x injectors re-seated (new seals)
Before I purchased the car people said I would be lucky to see 45mpg on a run, without really trying or checking I managed 56mpg, so yet another thing to admire about this car.
Anyone else seeing these figures?
