Gents, It has been a while since I posted, and lots of happened in the last few years but I always have my daily read of the forums. I used to own a CLK63 Blackseries, but after 65,000 miles it was starting to scream "its going to cost you", which was confirmed by having to dig deep for a new axle, discs and other bits in one hit. Not much change from 10K. So I traded it in for a C63 and a sedate E350 coupe. Loved them both, but after being spoilt with the CLK Black, the C63 wasn't just enough, yes I should have had the PP one, but I felt like a change (only after 4,000 miles) .. and I wanted more grunt! So, my local dealership obtained (as I love the 6.2's) a late E63 with performance pack and all the toys (including rear blind!) lol. And boy does it shift. So against the grain of what appears to be people scrambling for C63's I went with an E63 with Performance pack (around 547bhp) that in a straight line ripples the tarmac ... Oh and the added bonus, the number plate had AMG on it. . nice So did I do the right thing, maybe.. but at least now I can scare the pants of my Parents and wife in the car at the same time.. All while being massaged, inflated and blown cold air on my buttocks at the same time. So gents and ladies, did I do the right thing.. and should I be mindful of any hidden issues with the E63..
