i knew someone would eventually say this... :rolf:
will begin with MBenzNL mods since those are pre-approved by wifey...
after that, i'll focus on engine mods only since wifey never pops the hood... :D

NO_WUR_E 05-12-2008 12:47 PM

...forgot to mention....time to update your sig. :zoom:
I'm surprised the wifey didn't want you to keep the ML for future little MJs running around. Was it the rising cost of gas or just the need for speed?

MJ50 05-12-2008 12:54 PM

wifey actually wanted to trade-in the C...
but i said 'hell no!' (too much investment)...
no running around in my car... even lil' MJ.... :rolf:

ML's EPA was like 14/17
E55 is like 14/19...
so not much change in gas price...
it's more of need for speed... :D

PC Valkyrie 05-12-2008 01:35 PM

Congratus MJ......that's quite an upgrade!!!

I was totally in awe of the power when I upgraded from my C240 to a C55. I can't imagine how you're finding the difference in power between the E55 and your C240 and ML320.

Now, you're suddenly in the big leagues when it comes to AMG power!

MJ50 05-12-2008 01:54 PM

thx PCV!
yeah, it iss a big jump...
power just doubled from ML and tripled from C...
i need to learn the car and know its limitations... or should i say 'my limiatations'...

FASN8N 05-12-2008 04:07 PM

Looks good but what happened to the light?


MJ50 05-12-2008 04:10 PM

it appears the hood was worked on... i'll take a closer look later...

drexappeal 05-12-2008 07:51 PM

Damn, MJ! Gas is gonna be crazy expensive for you now!...LOL.

Nice. Can't wait to see it in person.
