2002 c32 amg
 
Hey guys, I haven't been around here in a long time. I've been through quite a few cars since I've had my BMW too. Just thought I'd pop in and share some pics of my new pride and joy. Not sure if anyone around here still remembers me.

Anyways, this is a mint C32 AMG I purchased less than a year ago. It has never seen salt/snow and there isn't a single dent or a spec of rust on it.

Mods I've done since the car was in storage...

3.2L Supercharged V6, 354hp 333lbs*ft torque
Magnecore wires, NGK iridium plugs, K&N filters, Eurocharged ECU remap, AMG Eibach springs and AMG revalved uprated front and rear dampers, H&R rear sway bar, Quaife LSD differential, EBC redstuff brake pads, goodridge SS lines, custom Dual exhaust, Johnson CM30 intercooler pump, Kmac bushings/camber kit, custom water/meth injection, Greddy catch can, SL55 intake, Carlsson front lip, custom CF rear diffuser and spoiler.

Some pics...

Loved it, tracked it at Shannonville a couple of times too. Unfortunately I got t-boned when someone ran a red light and the car was written off. The car was totalled 1 week after I put on new pads/rotors and full suspension/sways. Car was a blast to drive, not much understeer and cornered very flat. 250HP stock, with the BSR remap I had it would put it up around 280hp crank. I've always loved SAAB's, so I knew I had to get one. I'm thinking about getting a Viggen some time in the future. I almost got a Viggen convertable but the deal fell through. I will post pics when I get home. The 2.8L Holden V6 motor was a gem, just way too big/heavy for the 93's body. There was a common problem of coil packs overheating with anything more than stock boost. I will post some pics when I get home. I'm at work now.

The AMG speedshift is pretty good. Shifts fast and lets you have full control of the auto. With the ECU/TCU remap I can bounce off the rev limiter in any gear. It even throttle blips when it downshifts. The tranny takes 500WHP + no problem from what i've read, so the fact that it's auto doesn't really bother me.

I'm on my 3rd Benz, had a 2009 white C350 Sport 4matic, a year later got a 2010 white C350 Sport 4matic, now I have a 2011 dark grey C350 Sport 4matic, in a few months I would be getting a 2012 E550 Coupe, it's nice to work for MB that gives cheap leases with free insurance to employees, I do miss the 540 but couldn't afford insurance & repair bills*shiner*.

I don't know anyone from puremb because I'm not on that forum, the last thing I need is a board asking me question everyday about my job at MB.

Looks good Bryan!

some pics of the SAAB.

Mods included custom water/meth kit, BSR tuning, BSR intake, custom exhaust, Eibach springs and KONI dampers, Chassis V brace, EBC redstuff pads, EBC cross drilled/slotted rotors, euro impact strips, GS short shifter, GS shifter reinforcement, Goodridge SS brake lines, Spec carbon/kevlar clutch, custom adjustable sway bar endlinks, etc.

Never had any pics of the car lowered. I literally had the car for half a year. It's a real shame, I really loved that car. It was rare and a joy to drive. It confirmed what I have always thought to be true about SAABs, great handling FWD car that's slightly quirky inside and out. I had more compliments from strangers in this car than anything else I've ever owned. Even though the C32 is RWD and has 100 more HP than the SAAB, I had a lot more fun in the SAAB. Oddly enough, it felt like much more of a drivers car. There's a disconnected feeling I seem to get with all Mercedes cars. Apparently, replacing all the stupid liquid filled bushings fixes the problem. I've caught a lot of random people walking by sticking their faces into the hood's badge trying to figure out what kind of car it was. SAAB's, you either love them, or you hate them. I've loved them since my uncle owned his 1967 GT850 and 9000 and 9-3's after that.
