    Re: A tire question for you, RC.

    Quote:
    Great videos and your indepth impressions from the earlier posts are appreciated. My new E55 should arrive in a couple of weeks and now you have me really pumped. If only I had roads without the ever present threat of state troopers nailing me to run the thing up to the speed limiter as often as you get to.

    I have one question for you. Have you asked the people at AMG why the car is under-tired? My 1999 E55 has 275s on the rear and the much heavier and more powerful new one comes with wimpier 265s. I assumed they would go the other direction. I can't imagine the minor improvement in aerodynamics means as much as improved traction would with 285s. Any thoughts?

    Just a guess: maybe they want to sell the upcoming AMG 19'' Style IV wheels?
    I talked to them a lot about the E55, especially why there aren't more sporty options available like for the SL55 (Performance Package).
    The answer didn't surprise me: the E55 is a limousine.
    However I had the impression that even AMG was surprised with the success of the E55 even among younger people or sports car enthusiasts. So there seems to be a high probability of a E55 Performance Package for next year. Hooray.

    that is strange, because I was using the Safari 1.0 version!! Just down loaded iChat a/v and ordered 2 iSight cameras from Apple! Cameras should be here in the next 4-5 days!!!

    Time to switch to Windows XP Pro...or at least to Windows 2000.
    Sorry to hear that you can't see the movie. I used a tiny Casio S3 digital camera to make the movie and there was no way to control the video format.
    Maybe I find the time to convert it to a different (more compatible) format.
    Sorry again.
