    Hi all, just bought a C32 so thought I'd pop in & say hello. Just come from 12 years of TVR's so used to great performance. I have to say though, this thing is at least as fast as them all if not quicker!!
    It used to belong to forum member 'Benzedup' & after reading back a bit it looks like it has had the Eurocharged map & pulley! Don't know if this kit is still with the car as there is no record of it. Have emailed Eurocharged today to see if they have any records etc
    Terrifyingly quick, possibly too quick so we'll see how it goes.......

    Welcome to the forum. No such thing as too fast:D You'll get used to its performance before long and want more.

    Welcome and well done on your purchase. C32 AMGs are fantastic cars, and yours will be a peach given it's previous owner.

    Thanks chaps. Beautiful car, really loving feeling my way in to it. It's a flippin monster!
    Suffering the dodgy selector module at the mo though. 'P' not showing on the dash more often than not, so only starts when it feels like!!! Was going to use it every day but the TVR has come to the rescue!!!

    That just about sums up running a C32 :D

    They're great when they're working though.

    Welcome to the forum mate, great car, loved it and yes it was a monster, nothing use to come near it, use to shock a few people inc 911s

    I'll have a look this weekend to see if I have any invoices for it.

    Where abouts you from?

    I'm glad it's gone to an enthusiast, it's a lovely car.

    Hi Joe, I'm near Neath, South Wales. Previous owner to me was Neath too! So will be looking them up in the next week or two.

    There you go, small world. Yes so would love to gather as much info as I can about the car, so any info you have would greatly appreciated.
    Are there any national AMG meets & stuff like that?

    I'll have a dig around for some invoices this weekend and email you some, if I find any.

    There's a big Eurocharged event happening on the 18th at MSL in Birmingham, have a look in the events section.

    MSL events usually bring a big turn out.

    I have to sell one of my cars (space etc), both are great fun but I keep coming back to the C32 over the e55. The E55 feels more quality, has everything you could want but after I drive the C32 ...I just love it :dk::doh: I think... I feel more "involved" in the smaller car, the MPg is slightly better over all in the E55.

    I must admit ( dont say it ---now you've done it) I have been lucky so far with reliability, maybe as it had MB history from day 1 to May 2014 when I bought it but, clutching that wood, I've had no real issues apart from suspension bushs/Torsion arm & Tyres Brake etc Oh & I thought I heard a rattle from the S/charger pulley a few months after I bought it , told the Wife & she agreed I should replace it ...so I did with a 65mm one :rolleyes:...she understands the importance of regular maintenance ( steady lads) so it was done.

    This car was advertised as a standard example so went to see & bought this car as a standard example. Very surprised to learn of it's mods. Took it quite easy on the test drive so no real chance to 'Give it some' so to speak.

    I've had 9 TVR's in the last 12 years & this is the only car I've been afraid to use full throttle on! Even with traction on!
    Seat of the pants tells me this is a flippin monster. ... Wow. :eek:

    It's not your average c32 mate, I loved it!

    It's flipping rapid too, use to surprise a few.
