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.
lfcfan: Hi Todd, have been reading endlessly about the topic, and I really don't think that I'll be capable to 1. do the job myself as I don't have enough of the right equipment, and it looks like only the people who have access to TI exclusive distribution networ
