That would quite interesting to see. If it's the top of the curve and not a spike (mine spiked at 470 before normalising) - in which case that is some :rock::rock: C32 you have there!
Did they switch the system into Dyno mode (for holding the gears)? fuel might also make a difference, as...
The other thing to check is which dyno manufacturer is it? I think Dyno Dynamics has a good reputation for being accurate. Some dyno makes are optimistic; also it's not just a spike in the curve is it?
I took my car for it's NCT (MOT in Ireland). It passed with no problems at all, but the bloke said there was a big metal plate under the engine. He called a few people over during the test which I could see from the observation area, and after when I asked him what was up, he said they...
I'd recommend getting a mountain bike out as well - there is a great track that follows the ring through the surrounding forests. It's quite nice and gives some spectacular viewpoints away from the usual spots (e.g., the one at the apex of Karusell).
8 years I think. for my '00 W208 they did it as a goodwill gesture and covered all costs. I did not have FMBSH but was using a very reuptable indy. I don't think the SH makes a difference to the rust and corrosion warranty as that is different to the parts warranty (3 years). Don't let it go on...
Where can I get a bodykit like this W124 E500?

Nice clean conversion, with a very aesthetically pleasing combination of SLK rear lights, W203 headlights and an Asma Design-alike grill. Priceless :p
I was lookign at this the other day. It seems to go on CO2 and year of car (probably EURO 4 or 5 ratings).
The EURO ratings seem to make a big difference on the same size engine.
It's true about the autobahns being safer and derestricted zones. The accident was caused by weather conditions and the total amount of 250+ cars wasn't just one giant pileup in a few minutes, it happened over a two hour period with very heavy rain. And the speed limit in that section of the A2...
This is just a heads up for anyone who does visit the Ring, or is thinking of it.

Very nice to be able to drive there "officially" now. It's an interesting experiment from Allianz I think to see if it's profitable.

Another comment on the US pricing - should be around $98000, or $10k more than before. The strong € could be damaging for MB if it keeps up like this, seeing US and UK are major target markets.
I will be interested to know how MB price the E63 in the UK. The W211 AMG starts at £66k, which used to be ~ €95-100k back when it launched, but is around €77k now. However, the prices in Germany for this are still starting at €105k, so unless MB price at the old exchange rate, the W212 AMG...
