    Hi thoredan, I use to make my brake in here in Germany on the first 1000 km (about 600 miles)
    I usually do the first 300-400 km (180-250 miles) not over(speed) 120-140 kph(75-85 mph) and never do pedal to the floor.
    If I have around 400 km (250 miles) on IŽll drive up to 160-180 kph (100-115 mph)
    when I reach my 1000 km (600 miles) IŽll allways check out what top speed I get out of my new one. That`s the way I do it here and never had any problems with one of my cars.

    HELL NO, for what that car costs, take your time and break it in right. But then give it a good run and let us know please

I am young only 32, The only thing I like are my cars and computers ( I dont even own a watch) And I love payless shoes. crazy as that sounds, if you ever ran into me anywhere you would not even have a clue what car I have sitting out side. Waste not want not.

    Hate to break it to you, but you're in for a rude awakening when you meet your first AMG. You will get owned in a straightline race from a dig or from a roll by any supercharged or turbocharged AMG car.

    Will do asap once the snow is gone here in PA allmost all 18 inches have melted and roads are allmost dry ( i have taken it out in the bad weather and it did just fine, but it is drity wash it every night but one trip and its trashed hate the salt)

    Dam you are young to have a STS V8 Good for you that you can afford a STS V8 you will love a xlr v it feels like a much younger car its a shame it so expensive and few like us can afford it at our ages.

    I have driven AMG MB allmost all of them clk 55 sl 55 the only ones with the "good" engine ( i have a detailing company in the main line ) granted they are quick, but have YOU ever driven a XLR-V? The xlr feels light on its feet way over powered and I am sure it will take one of them and not be embaressed at all from the 4.4 North Star SC. I was just on the blue route the other day 476 and 60 to 103 came way too quick AMAZING!

    Danny, you`ve made the right choice, absolutely
    A friend here in Germany had an 04 sl 55 amg, in 6 months his car have to be towed for electronic-problems and because he was so mad about it, MB took his car back and gave him a new one.
    Now with the new one nothing has changed, three towings (again electronic) and he will sell it if ever he can and want to buy a new Z06 or an XLR V.

    We were messing with some xlr-v's we had and when you trick the vaccuum operated exhaust blockoff into always staying open the V sounds all the sweeter.. these are turning out to be fun little cars.

    How did you control the vacume?
    I understand there is a electrical fuse that can be pulled, but can't seem to locate the right one. appreciate the help
