    in my free time I mess with my mercedes e55 amg. Extensive mod list making well over 500whp
    168mm crank
    83mm supercharger pulley
    Injectors (intercooler upgrade, lines
    Eurocharged ecu+tcu tune
    Headers, exhaust
    Visual mods:
    Carbon fiber: spoiler, diffuser, splitter, steering wheel, interior trim
    19” vossen cv3, vossen fvs2 19x8.5 19x10.5

    During the winter when the car is put away I make more carbon fiber parts for it. Currently doing the full interior trim along with fenders and a hood. Will be making a custom 3 wing diffuser as well.

    Where are the other car guys?

    What happened to your 2000 3-series? The E55 is a nice step up in the world!

    I have owned a lot of cars.

    Alpina B7, some AMG cars, Lotus Elise, couple
    Corvettes, many turbo Subarus and turbo Buick Grand Nationals.
    Half dozen RX-7, Couple Fox body Mustangs...

    I would not mind having a AMG E Wagon and was recently looking around for One.

    how did you know I had an e46?

    I have had 2 bmw, 323i and a m3
    3 infiniti, 2 audi, honda, subaru and the benz.

    I would love an amg wagon. Preferably the e55 wagon in white but that will never happen. My buddy has a e63s with 800hp which is nice. runs low 10s. amazing what an exhaust and a tune can do to a bi-turbo.

    Kongo-Otto Love on first bite!

    Low Profile pimps like me drive KIA Picanto. To keep the girls happy they can use it too when the red devil shutting down the cashbox.
    Last winter i removed the "I fuck for my daddy" sticker to improve the weight/power ratio.

    I bring my 30yr old V6 buick up there and make him feel bad if you want.
    I will show him what the tail end of a regal looks like. Bone stock long block with a few bolt ons and tuned with FAST ecu.
    Just one BIG turbo. Dont need two turbos or a V8. But my buick is abput 1000lbs lighter....same horse power.
    Seats four adults and has bigger trunk.

    I was in Affalterbach as a child when my uncle picked up his golden S 500 tuned by AMG. In 1983 AMG was a big garage with appr. 7 spaces. What i remember was a red 500 SL with white leather and a TV! in the middle dashboard.

    Anyway you should invest in software from Darmstadt instead in hardware from Untertürkheim

    Either you hate them....(the majority) or you love it! No in between usually.

    I really dig this machine. One of my little brothers had a Blue One a decade ago.

    I waited too long. The stupid car's price went up a lot the past decade!

    I was waiting for it to drop. Around 2000 cars made for 2002. Very rare to see One in it's natural habitat.

    I think we have similar tastes in cars Scott. I too, love the way the m coupe looks! I saw one at my mechanics garage half a year ago. He told me that the owner had recently got it, but took him a while before he could purchase one because of how popular they are.

    If money was no object, I would want the Ferrari ff.

    Im a big Bimmer fan. The M coupe is not my favorite body style, but I'd be happy as hell to drive it. It's a Bimmer you know it handles. My neighbor had a banana yellow one he wanted to sell to me before moving back to Europe.

    At the stealership right now getting a software dx on my e39 touring. Just something i got a while back to wrench on that is not related to teeth. I used to have an e30, but had to let it go when I found terminal cancer near the sunroof. Traded it in on a VW gti with a vr6.

    Yeah e39 is the chassis. Mine is a 525iT it's not going to win any races. I just use it for PU and delivery and to take my nutty dog to the dog park and on road trips.
