Re: New car, sorry it's not a WK2

I've read the same from multiple people... that the 55 feels faster but the 63 actually is faster. I remember back in the day when I kept up with MB forums, someone emailed MBUSA asking about the differences between the 55 and the 63 and they said that the 63 is much more consistent. With the massive torque of the 55, wheelspin would often become a big factor in 1/4 times and while the 55 could peel off quicker times than the 63, it didn't do it consistently. They said where the 63 shined over the 55 was on the track with its refined suspension, upgraded brakes, and lighter weight (apparently the 6.2L is lighter than the 5.4L).

Got any mods planned for it? And did you have any mods on your 55?

Re: New car, sorry it's not a WK2

thanks for the thorough input guys ... I'm still torn in between the 55 or 63 I guess my main thing will be down to modding cuz on the mb forums they say that the 55 is friendlier to mod than the 63 ...

sorry for thread jacking lol

but yeah what mods you got planned?

Re: New car, sorry it's not a WK2

I don't really have any mods planned. It's too new to me to really know what I feel it needs. I like the rim/tire combo on it. I can't think of any engine mods to do right now. I just haven't found anything missing. Other than a bit louder exhaust. I like to hear it while I drive. And the normal subs/amp thing.


I need to name her too... Feel free to suggest some for me.

Re: New car, sorry it's not a WK2

you guys hit it on the head. 55 is more of a beast, 63 is more elegant and refined, and every-day creature-comforts! Man I miss going home and driving the E55

Congrats on your purchase and great choice!

My Dad and I always had a rule: The car must start with what the body style or manufacturer is...my Jeep's name is Jill, we named the E55 Escobar The Range Rovers were Rodney and Reggie etc

First you need to determine gender...then I will provide you with a potential name My Jeep was a girl from the get-go (my baby), but the Rovers and E55 were men...is this your baby or bad boy?
