SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    haha with the exception of the corvette z06 everything made by GM SUCKS ASSS!!! loser. and someone made a comment that said german cars are like a rolex...i dont know what's the other half to that statement but i think getting a rolex would be cool if that was an insult than i dont know where your coming from...if it wasn't than props to you.
     
  2. Did ur'll know that the sl55s which were sold in europe (as they are only out there at the moment) were recalled? That's cos the E55 with the same engine is supposedly faster (due to a much lighter body weight), and as SL55 drivers pay more money for performance they have recalled all sold vehicles for a power hike around 500hp. So much for the peope who think that the E55 is going to use the NA 5.5 engine. This is going to kick M5's ass. For those who don't believe me here is the article which was on the 'auto express' website.

    SL Is Recalled To Get Extra Power


    t's red faces all round at Mercedes – engineers are going back to the drawing board after they realised the SL55 AMG wasn't as fast as the new hot E-Class. Not yet launched in Britain, the 476bhp supercharged convertible went on sale in Germany in February. Around 100 had been delivered when production was halted for six weeks to uprate engines to 500bhp.

    This move ensured the SL55, the flagship of the AMG range, wasn't overshadowed by the next performance E-Class. The E will use the same engine, but as it's lighter and more aerodynamic than the SL, it had proved quicker in testing.

  3. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thats the spirit! Instead of detuning the E55, uprate the SL!! Good on them.
     
  4. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is strange from AMG.

    As another magazine confirmed ?
     
  5. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    why was the SL a poorer performer than the e55? n why not just give the supercharged 5.5 liter to the clk to mess everyone up
    p.s. the m5 is still best

    I never said BMW had something to compare to it. Thats the point, comparing this to the M5 is idiotic. Just like you.
     
  11. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think the recall is true. Non of this news have been spread, maybe there is some electronic problem instead.
     
  12. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    i agree with mr bmw mercades like all hand made crap from this company is bull plop

    v8 with no more than 9 hp and .3 mph than an m3 id say this was totall bull plop............... bull plop wud probably have more speed dumping into the toilet tho
     
  13. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I'm not sure how much of this is true, but I don't think a company would be publicising a recall as we'de expect. I'm sure these stuff are done in secret. ANyway we'll see if the new ones off the production line come with 500 BHP. What i stated was what I read.

  18. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you check out germancarfans.com it states the sl55 getting uprated so i don't think is not true.
     
  19. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's right. The SL55 AMG will get an upgrade to exactely 500hp, wile the new E55 AMG will get the 476hp engine...
     
  20. Re: SL55 AMGs recalled!!!!!!!!!!!

    SL55AMG to get 500bhp so it won't be slower than the E-55AMG sedan.And i am glad that the E-55AMG will be getting the 476bhp engine.<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    you post in like every mercedes thing I've read, go do something with your life other than come into mercedes subjects and bash for no reason, it's so annoying. There's a lot more to these cars than performance, there's also prestige. You can drive what you want tho, I don't care, but it does make me happy that you're driving a GM while I'm cruising in a Benz.<!-- Signature -->

    true true, the SL55's have been recalled..they will get an upgrade to 500Hp..It's confirmed...check the official MB website,,, www.mercedes.com/amg
    the new S55 and CL55 will get that same engine too: 500Hp
    isn't cool? the S class!! faster than the M3 !! lol

    The E55 will get the 476Hp,, but i think that sooner or later the engine will be upgraded , cuz certainly BMW will come with an Amazing new M5, rumors say something around 500hp..

    Hahahah this is funny.

    1) "shud" ?? - please explain that word for me
    2) "mercades" ?? - it's Mercedes. Understand what you are bagging before you bag.
    3) That statement was not backed up in any way whatsoever
    4) No car from GM can compare positively to any new Mercedes as an all-round package. Mercedes have good performance and excellent luxury and build quality. The only respectable all round GM car (Corvette) has excelent performance, and pitiful luxury and build quality.
    5) The word "BANNED" under your name there is really quite impressive, and I must say it really makes for a good, and original look.
