    Can't get over the performance of this car. Does all types of driving brilliantly well. Just cruising or on the loud pedal it's just epic. Having owned my car now 7 months still very smitten with mine. Having owned quite a few different v8 performance cars and 4X4 this is by far my favourite. I am planning a few upgrades within the next 6 months. I think this will be a keeper. Can't give the car enough praise. Awesome is a powerful word and it somes up the E55 to a T. Happy motoring E55 owners.

    Very addictive car the E55K, plus it's the last of the AMG Q-Cars, can't beat one in silver with panoramic roof.

    They say it's all thanks to the engine. Although some find throttle a bit too sensitive. Don't ask why, maybe it's the forced induction? :dk: ;)

    What are the upgrades planned? I'm guessing smaller pulley and remap as #1 ?

    Maybe IPE exhaust as well :-D

    They are fantastic cars no question.

    I'd still have mine if I had more discipline not to use the performance but 5.5 years of driving a really comfy car whilst caning a lot of stuff is satisfying!

    What year did they make the W211 E55k?

    I've been looking and after about 06 they seem to all be 63s.

    Reading the US MB forum I think most 06 55k's ended up in the States.
    Very rare indeed to see one on our roads. A late 2005 model would be my choice given the lower Road fund licence band.

    You have 23 days into 06 plates to have the cheap vehicle tax bracket.

    55 plate guarantees it of course.

    Ricky's is the only 06 plate I've ever known of or seen.

    You cannot be serious? Have you ever compared the E55 to the SL55 convertible???
    Absolutely no competition. The E55 is a bus by comparison.

    Because we're all tightwads you mean... :D

    There will be ones beyond 23 days of course... but they will be half a bag of sand instead.

    But the suspension doesn't fail every week and the boot leak like a sieve:D

    There is a lot of "tongue in cheek" going on here, starting with the thread title:devil:
