after having the C43 AMG for a few years now i have been looking out for a suitably cheap E55 to take the 5.4ltr engine and the 18" wheels for my C43, and found one recently very cheap and in good shape.
I was amazed at how fast it is, noticably more torque than the 4.3ltr version of the same engine, and the big E Class handles very well too. Not quite as good as the C43, but it sure is faster.

Not yet mate, i will look at getting it organized when i finish nights on Wednesday.
The build quality on this E55 is really quite incredible though i must say. Previous owner has spent more on the car in the past 5 years than i paid all up to buy it, and its in really great mechanical order.
I will probably look at the timing chain and guides when i have the 5.4ltr out of the car, although it runs that smoothly i doubt there will be much needed.
275,800klms on it, and youd think it was more like 25,000!!
I loved the W210, but it doesnt handle near as good as the W202, and the seats are not as snug around the bolsters, which are adjustable on the C-Class AMGs.
There were 30 W202 C55s made in Europe apparently, it was supposedly a 30,000 euro option, the difference between mine and the factory one is the speedometer in mine goes to 280 and the factory C55 goes to 300, and mine has a 3.07:1 diff ratio instead of 2.82:1.
jbmeyer13: Wolfy's Marquee isn't working? Did you spill a pint on it and short the MB?

wolfman: Always the same sarkasm Kurt that's why I never checked in until now. I knew you wouldn't give me a cheerful answer so let you hang for a while. Removed the last part you probably are a decent guy Eye to Eye.

stridsvognen: Wolfman, its768% better thanyour Marquee for sure. As it can actually display a image.

wolfman: So how's the black level on that thing? When the screen is supposed to go pitch black do you perceive it as genuinely black? Like the opening of CARS where it goes on and off pitch black. Or Prometheus with stars against a pitch black space.. or any Sci-Fi

stridsvognen: I have had multiple Digital projectors hanging together with the Marquee, the Sony is actually the first one that i actually turn on and use, so put 100 + hours on it already.

wolfman: What in the name of God possessed you to go gray.. Stoned are you?

stridsvognen: Its nice to have a new 5000$ digital to show off next to the Marquee, it makes the Marquee look like it worth all the 35000$ printed on the lable on the box.
