W220 S65 AMG
Arrow I've joined the 6.0L AMG V12 Club!

I've always been a W220 fan and this is my third one... started off with an S500 about 6 years ago and moved on to a biturbo S600 and now I'm at the end of the game in this beautiful S65 AMG.

This is a 2006 S65 AMG, brilliant silver metalic with alpaca gray interior. Absolutely flawless and is pretty much like brand new.

Here's a quick YouTube video: http://youtu.be/xt5P_DpkPqM

Some crappy iPhone pictures until the weather gets nicer...

Whatever there's gas in...
I saw this coming!

Looks like a "vanilla" version of your 600! (minus the 6.0L TT )

Can't wait to see the finished product! Game over indeed

Good luck with the beast. How many miles, where'd you find it, what options, are you going to race it?

Thank you! I love the beast.

23,500 on the clock, found her at Park Place MBZ in Texas.

Drive Dynamic Seats, KeylessGo, Parktronic, and all the other doodads that the S600 would have. Only thing missing is Distronic... which I really wanted..

I'll take it to the drag strip once or twice, that's probably going to be it.

I blew out the driver's side coil pack... misfires on cylinders 7-12. Poop. Got an appointment at MB on Monday, they said it should be fixed by 4:00PM on Tuesday. ****.

Not sure how long you keep your cars, but if any car needs a good extended warranty, that's the one. You've had it a week and you're in for $1300 at the dealer already, which sucks.

Shoot me an email or PM and I can hook you up with a great warranty.

Bruce, thanks for the offer, but the car is a CPO and this will be covered under warranty.

It was delivered Wednesday... so technically I've only had it for TWO days!

Chris, I'm so happy for you! So when are you getting some rims on the beast?

Btw I'm super jealous of your purchase too haha

I really like the stock wheels but I am working on a set of 20" DPE wheels in gunmetal grey with a gloss black lip.

I agree the stock wheels look amazing especially with the rivets!

Any idea which specific DPE's you want to get?

looks great buddy! let me know when you find out the model, I want to see what it looks like haha

The reason I'm so interested is because I just bought a new set of 20's and its just so hard finding the right looking wheels to fit our look!

Hey man congrats on the car! I'm in the market for an S600, but S65 prices seem pretty fair now too for the W220. I love the massive torque on the 65 but it looked like you had your 600 nicely modded. How does your 65 feel vs your 600 modded? Faster or around the same? I know the suspension is a bit firmer but these cars even with 19's ride extremely smooth. Also how are the stock IAT's? My friend's 65 always runs around 170-190 degrees and turbos always giving up making the exhaust "pop".

Exhaust pop??? Hmmm last time my exhaust started to pop I needed 2 coil packs. (misfires), so have that checked out. it's not supposed to do that. Just .02 cents here.
