    im 22 and while most people my age are into civics and glanza's etc i took a big gamble and bought the car that had originally sparked my love of merc's, the c36 amg....

    just wanted to say that ive had the car 3 or 4 weeks now and i still just get such a thrill driving it...I OWN AN AMG :)!!

    i know things are going to go wrong eventually due to high mileage but i cannot think of a better way to have put a small bit of money away and invest in the car that started it all(production-wise anyway)...

    unbelievable power for such a solid non-turbo car and just so smooth when you want to take it easy at 50mph

    guy who owned this before me(another forum member on here from cork) deserves much praise for rescuing it(it was due to be scrapped)

    had to replace flywheel and other little bits but at 180000 miles who cares

    HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended to anyone considering buying one(so worth it in todays cheap market place)

    keeping head to head with my friends evo 7 tells it's own story!!!!
