As some of you may remember, I used to own a W211 E55. I sold this to buy an E60 M5 which is stills great car, but my head is being turned by the E63 BiTurbo.
It is a car that is on my short list for next year.
2. F10 M5.
3. Keep my M5.
I don't know a great deal about...
Just signing off I guess, sold the E55 last month, bought an M5 at the weekend. The E55 was faster in a straight line, but the M5 has it in the corners. I prefer the SMG to the Auto box and I also prefer the sound from the V10 to the supercharged V8. Considering the M5 is only 2 years younger...
It is time to sell my E55 AMG. It has been a good car and has needed very little spending on it since I bought it in July last year. The only reason for selling is that I want to get back to something with a manual gearbox, which will likely be an E39 M5 (3rd one!).
When I bought the car it...
Just refitted my fabtech style kit on my E55. The supercharger used to whine lots before I took it off but now it is hardly whining at all.
I have fitted it how it was before so I am confused. Any ideas?

As I am unsure what to do with the car at the moment and that I am unlikely to make it any quicker, I am going to sell the new pads I bought for it.
I am just looking to get back what they owe me, which is £150.
They're still new in the box, can get a pic later if needs be.
My car has 137k miles, uses no oil, seems in rude health.
Acid @ MSL advised that I leave the car alone. It is pushing 522bhp but as is always the case I have gotten used to it and I'd like it to be quicker, otherwise I will buy something quicker.
At this mileage, would you risk tuning it...
What's your preference?
I've always preferred turbocharged cars, having had several. I quite like the laggy delivery and building up boost.
That said, a supercharged V8 is very addictive.
What say you?
When you bought your car were there any options that were desirable to you and helped make you choose the car?
For me it was the split / fold rear seats. I would have liked keyless go, power close boot, distronic, heated rear seats and air cooled seats but the one thing I really wanted was the...
There is a leak from the gearbox on my car. I plan on getting a new gearbox sump gasket. I am aware that there is also a connector above the gearbox that can also leak, is that right? Am I best replacing the connector / seals there as well?
