2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
This vehicle has surpassed my expectations. I had two M3's before this car. I miss the exterior design of the M3, but nothing else. This car's interior is first rate. The stereo is first rate (unlike the M3 it can handle bass). The ride is nicer than the M3 as well. I understand they cancelled the C55. I guess they couldn't fit the 6.3 litre motor in the compartment. Its a shame because I think this is a perfect small sports sedan. One of the best I have driven.
Motor, stereo, the amber night light, exposed stitching on leather. Oh, and the motor!
Make the C55 look different from the ordinary C class. Make the exterior design more aggressive. Other than the exterior styling, this car smokes the M3 in every way. Oh, and put better looking wheels on. I switched mine.
