I just bought an E55 a few weeks ago and share your enthusiasm.. However I'd have guessed you were about 17 from all the "pay attention to me!!!" posts

ohhh nothing great,just pilot super sports lol

I knew I needed an lsd after the last few changes to the car when the drag radials wouldnt hook right.

the ones I sold you would spin and you were dead hooking with them

honeslty my next mod is to lower boost to a 168 and enjoy the car this summer.

Ohh and the tires Im getting next are the toyo r888s in 275/35/18 dont even look how much they run,it hurts but I need to put the power down some how
