Since we are talking about older M-B's...

Here are two from my garage.  I have had them both since they were practically new. 

The CLK55 had 6,000 miles on it, and the E55 had 5,000 miles on it.

They are both teenagers now.  LOL  And I still love them both dearly.

All the best...  HEO

Yes a fast family car ...

I'm sure that the Turbo driver was not able to match your skill...

Or this is a much older Turbo, probably older than a 996.

The E55 is great in a straight line or on the Autobahn. Personally I don't like it in the curves.

There's a bit of dive under braking. Significant body lean in the curves. Steering doesn't have a lot of feel. Brake pedal feel is artificial (computerized braking system). Transmission only has 5 speeds and the gear ratios are very far apart. It's geared...
