I own an E55 for 2 months now and sometimes I smell very strong petrol odor inside the cabin.
I noticed that it happens when the car is in a stop and go traffic.
The first time it happened when the fuel was 3/4 full and yesterday it was 1/4 but I could still smell it.
I found out that...
I've been a member of this forum since 2010 but have been 'lurking' so haven't posted much.
My BMW 545 has recently been written off so I'm now in a position to find an E55. I'd ideally like to buy from a MB forum member as I'd be confident it would have been properly cared for.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I am the new owner of Alps E55 :bannana:
It was a pleasure to deal with Alps and as for the car :devil:
The car, as many of you know, is beautiful and 'fully loaded' is for once an accurate description.
The challenge for me is to...
Is this BOSCH Water Pump 0392022010 | eBay

These are straight swops but uprated parts over OEM?
Hello all - I was wondering whether there are any members familiar with the M113 5.4L?

Guys, in the past I have always changed the rubber brake lines for braided lines on the C32 and both my C55.

Im Bilal, currently own a collection of Japanese Cars (Impreza Type R, 180SX, DC2 Turbo, Civic Turbo, Mugen RR, Evo VI).
