    Default E550 Coupe

    Does anyone have any experience with these at all? In particular the 2012 model. How does it compare to the C63 you guys think? On paper C63 is obviously more powerful (481hp) than the E550(401hp). But since the E is twin turbo I wonder what actually will be quicker at our elevation? They are both RWD so that doesn't make a difference.

    They should be fairly close in acceleration. But wouldn't be surprised if the E550 pulled on it still lol.

    Surprised to see they weight the same! I'd personally rather have the E coupe, I have yet to drive a turbo version but I adored V8 models I've been in.

    My CLS550 is dead even with my C63 black, so I'd say it's pretty close.

    I went from a 2010 C63 to a 2014 E550 cab. Power is pretty close but the lag is really noticeable compared in the TT. I miss the exhaust and the stiffness of the C63. The E feels floaty even in sport setting and the brakes feel spongy after a a hard brake or 2.

    Thanks for the input guys. I do love the looks of the E quite a bit but I've always liked coupe's. Sounds like as far as the power is concerned, I wouldn't be downgrading too much then. Plus I am thinking since it's a Twin Turbo, a tune would probably have a significant impact on the power as well and make it a lot quicker?

    Thanks G, that's exactly what I am worried about. I know I will miss the exhaust but that can be fixed. My biggest worry is the overall feel of the car. With the C63, I don't know it's hard to explain, you can just give it to her and you actually feel the overall excitement. I am worried that I would miss that with the E as it might be a bit too 'tame' for my liking.

    Other than that, they are both RWD so I don't see any difference in that. If the E was AWD, that would make a huge impact on my decision. The sedan version is, but I don't like the looks of that and I am worried it might feel even more boat-like. It's a tough decision but as much as I like the looks of the E550 coupe, at the moment I am leaning on sticking with the AMG.

    Don't even bother if it's pre-facelift model. The new LED lights are beautiful and the rear looks much better.

    It's really too bad they didn't make a E63 Coupe. Or even better, a BS version. The facelifted E Coupe is the best looking car behind the S Coupe, a 600hp AWD with redonk fenders and bodywork would be the shit.

    S coupe

    If I had to pick an E, the AMG Estate or wagon/whatever you want to call it.

    What year was the facelift for the E? The one I am looking at is a 2012 with 11K km's. Next to new pretty much.

    Is there an E coupe that's AWD? I know of the new E63's but what about E550?

    That is sexy. The S63AMG Coupe would be ideal but that's gotta wait a few years for now! lol

    The E was facelifted MY2014. There is no AWD E550 coupe.

    Damn that sucks. That's the biggest reason that's holding me back. If I am sticking with RWD then I might as well stay with the AMG lineup. I looked at a 2012 SLK55AMG for a bit but feel like it's a bit of a girly car? As for winter driving, I am sure if I doing that in my C63, SLK55 would be fine too?

    If it's your DD I would seriously rethink the size of the SLK. I had a s2000 and the lack of rear seats really gets to you after a while. Really dumb that I had to put my drivers in the front seat because the back can barely fit my golf bag.

    Super confused here. You complain that you can't drive the C63 in the winter, yet you are looking at another RWD car?

    He thought the E coupe has AWD which is does but only for the 350 but not the 550.

    Get an E400. Soon to be E450 AMG sport 4Matic I am sure.

    Tune that and you will have the best of both worlds.
