Thanks. Well, it's a 2003 registered (but 2002 built) short wheel base S55 AMG Kompressor. Goes like stink, and I traded my S430 in for it. I was craving a bit more grunt. I got a bit more grunt.

I'm very satisfied with the car. Today was the first day of spring and I couldn't resist making some pictures in the sun.

Yes, both SL and S are matching in color (inside & out) build year, AMG 55 kompressor. A bit boring perhaps, but I like uniformity. I consider myself lucky

dunno why the images aren't showing....when I use my home pc, I can see them here on this thread, but when I log on from work, I can't see the images either. I'll try and figure out what I did wrong.

I am the second owner, picked her up with 56,500 miles on it, got a great deal. From Benzel Busch Mercedes in New Jersey...

I talked the dealer down $3000 on the car since he could not find me floor mats or the rear bumper joint for it. And I told him there was a little ding in the hood and the tires were not the best.

I got the mats for $109.00 and the bumper joint for $19.90 at my local Benz dealer... The dealership will take out the ding in the hood this week for $175/panel.

She is loaded with some the standard options... rear sunshade, etc... nothing spectacular.

I love the ride, very very smooth. Very satisfied with the service I was provided with at my local dealership here...

I was getting some violent vibrations at around 45MPH... dropped it off at 7:30AM, they had a driver drive me to my house so I could make it to work on time. By 4:30PM, they performed an alignment, rotated the tires in the back, installed new tires on the front, did an oil change, filter change, all fluids checked and filled and the car was ready for pickup. When I picked it up it was washed and the tires were greased up...

The only two things that are on my mind right now are...

For some odd reason, exactly between 65MPH and 72MPH there is some vibration throughout the whole car... it's nothing like what I was getting before I went to the dealer, but it's noticeable...

I am probably going to have them change the rear tires as well this week... do you think that will help?

Second is, I need to put some AMG wheels on this baby...

You are to be congratulated on the car and your ability to buy it on your own! I wolud get that vibration checked out ASAP. Unless there is something wrong w/ your back tires, it may be something more serious. Why didn't the dealer check out all wheels and tires when they did the alignment? You might want to take it back as an "oh, by the way, you may not have finished the job..." kind of deal. If it is a minor thing they might not charge you.
