I well definitely stay active on these forums; RF is still the best car/truck forum on the net and there'll still be things I can chime in on. But for now I'm just enjoying my little present to myself.

It has a auto with paddels, I dont think AMG has made a non auto car in a long while

Danggg, that sucks! If I upgrade/trade-in to a newer truck, i sure plan on taking anything not-factory off. Because the dealer will take all that stuff off, whomever is in the shop practically gets it for nothing.

Nice, Quite an upgrade indeed! I have driven an SLK55 AMG, and that engine was pretty damn nice. Yeah, Mercedes doesn't put a manual tranny in the AMG cars because it can't handle the power.. Willkommen!

well... thats different... in a good way I guess... usually the ranger guys go to a bigger truck or get a muscle car, not a German luxury car, lol...
