The biggest problem is the gearbox though - it simply isn't up to the job and ruins the fun at every opportunity. Try manually shifting up on the redline and instead of punching home the next gear the box dithers, sending you crashing into the rev limiter. This is one AMG that really should have had a manual, or an SMG style sequential box.

Not sure whats been replaced in your major tune up but cap rotor coil wires and OVP are the biggest culprits. After that the fuel distributer and duty cycle.

I just put a new battery in my 1993 mercedes 400e and now it will not turn over at all, everything else electrical works lights horn etc.

Ignition switch is normally biggest culprit or the lower engine wiring harness needs replaced. May be starter has gone bad also.

Buying recommendation

High perfomance tires blow out from sidewalls; many problems with car I would never buy another. For a luxury car it has had terrible problems.
