sportline suspension?? i was told the red painted cars were much faster, special paint.

Yes dude, full sportline suspension setup. So she's got the handling prowess of an oil tanker at high tide, if you look closely you'll just be able to make out the stabilizer wheel's mounted in the door mirrors. It's a close kept secret but the works AMG team used to upgrade their shocks from Marmite to treacle filled inserts, still kept the badge on them though.

Red paint is good for 50bhp, you know that!:p

My old car, a SEAT Leon is currently quickest, it has 585bhp unfortunately no diesel is going to be competitive against it
We have OM648 in W203 body, that gives 517hp from wheels - ~570 from crank. Not so far away ... and with diesel only, without smoke.
This was the old engine, next season we wait +100hp more.

Get some pics up if you can, it's amazing the amount of people over here that don't understand a diesel is capable of those numbers.:thumb:
