what do people think of this? Is the power figure realistic?
It's been talked about before http://www.mbclub.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=56040&highlight=e400+amg
Buy an e500 matey rather than this E400
The only advantage the one listed would have over an E500 is if it were RHD, but it isn't, so an E500 is a better car all round.
Unless it's absolute exclusivity you're after, then the AMG will be far more rare.
Disadvantages of this car to a 500e are :
- 52 lb ft torque
- cult status
Pity it's left hand drive too...
LHD rules !
Wish all my cars were left hookers !
Much more fun and safer too !
I enjoy my LHD car and in an odd way it's nice to have something a little different.
Overtaking is pretty much just as easy in a RHD car apart from one thing. Your final glance. You have checked that the road is clear, you KNOW the road is clear, every part of your body knows the road is clear, but not being able to do that final last glance before going for the overtake without putting a large portion of your car in the apposing lane takes some getting used to. Cars are fine, vans etc are no fun.
The power helps though after that haha.
We drive on the left hand side of the road and we normally park on that side as well as it goes with the flow of traffic.
On a right hand drive car, you get out of the car onto oncoming traffic.
On a left hand drive car, you have the nice safe pavement!
Its also easier to look over your right shoulder when joining a main road from a slip road: you have a much better view.
Never mind the power...........what about the price ?
Probably when getting out of it when its parked on the LHS of a road.....?
Sorry just read Pupsi's reply, already covereded!...serves me right for not reading the thread properly!
