sorry MJ, no matter what you do, even if you get a Veyron... you'll never be faster than the ONLY C350!

The car looks GREAT!

Also can the E63 also have the AMG startup screen, is there a DIY on it?

i'm pretty sure it's the same method...
1. press CD
2. hold 5
3. hold 3+7
4. select AMG W211
5. Back
6. turn off COMAND
7. turn off car for 5 min & voila!

n/m from what I gathered, it's only for 04-05 comand, so I dont think the 07 will work. Oh well, I got MP3's.
