no, I meant, MB has put in the 5.5 (and other V8) in non-AMG CLS, CL, S, E class cars.

To me the 5.5 is just fine for the 99.99% of owners out there, when you stuff that 6.2 in there, it makes the car faster and changes the character of the car, but in no way are CLS, CL, S, and E class cars designed to be track cars. Personally, the only 6.2 cars I would consider buying would be the C63 or SLS. That's it.
