Hi from the pitifully cold North West! My E63S goes into build on Friday with a hopeful delivery date of end 1st week in March. My second consecutive AMG - had the S63 Coupe before - but definately the meanest :) Hope to see some of you at any regional meets when the weather improves (though 4Matic is quite handy in the wet ;-) )

Hello from another E63s owner in the North West.

I'm definitely too old for mine but I'm not bothered. I've always had silly cars and see no reason to stop as yet. :D

Welcome also from a too old E63 (only 212) owner in Wirralshire surrounded by the sea ;)

It was the Harris review which swayed me towards buying mine. Agree about the lack of noise, though the switchable exhaust system helps it along quite a bit.

Assume you stumped up for the sports exhaust too then? From memory it was about 900 quid

Yes, it has the switch on it.

Worth it in my opinion, makes the car sound a lot better.

Nope, further South (like 4.5 hours South of there). Hate to publish names in case they were on some kind of 'special' deal and all that. Good thing is I get plenty of motorway miles to get used to things on the way home. Bad thing is the shitty train journey down there as they only do piddly little trains with no 1st class on them!

I’ll wave to you on your way down. I’ll be jumping on a train and heading up north to collect mine. Looks like we ordered at the right time, as it seems the dealerships have really tightened up on discounts on these. I ordered mine via Carwow to get the discount, but I believe the best you can get now is about 3.6% off. Most dealerships aren’t offering any discount at all.

Ha! I used Carwow too. Also got my S63 Coupe from them after being told by Manager at local AMG dealership that "they don't give discounts". The 7 grand I save on that one paid for insurance and petrol for the year I had it (I am fickle and it just wasn't big enough in the end). Why don't I collect yours from Grimsby, you mine from Cardiff and we'll meet up in Birmingham for the exchange LOL

They’re really good. I know a lot of dealerships hate them, but it’s up to them whether they are on it or not, so they can’t really hate them that much.

It’s a tempting offer. However, the magno selenite grey on yours may be too tempting, and I’d end up stealing it. I agonised over the colour, and ended up bottling the matte finish as I thought I’d be forever worried about birds using it for target practice.

Ever heard of Invisifilm? I'm considering whole car coverage, but it's over 4k. Half a car at 2160 GBP is still a lot. It's good stuff though, had it on the S class.

Nope, never heard of it!

I think I’ll be fine with metallic. When I ordered it we were still living in London, and it was going to be parked outside. Now we’ve moved to Oxfordshire it’s going to in a garage when not used, so magno probably would have been ok. Not to worry. I guess if I get bored I could always get it wrapped magno hell green... :confused:

IMO the basic kit - front end, bonnet, windscreen surround and wheel arches/side sills is plenty enough to combat stonechips. The invisifilm is one of those self healing jobbies and does actually work. Saved me from some serious damage on the Bentley once, after a rogue wing mirror fell off the car in front at motorway speeds and slapped the front corner spoiler. Was expecting all sorts of hideousness when I pulled over/got out, but it was unmarked save for a slight gouge which 'healed' when heat was applied by the dealer.
