You are a man after my own heart

When someone or something says I can't do something, then I just get more determined to make it happen!

Good link on CANbus here http://www.semiconductors.bosch.de/pdf/can2spec.pdf

Now for the past 4 years I have already had a car, stock 560SL, that is faster than a Ferrari 308 GTSi in all speed categories with the exception of absolute top speed. The 308 GTSi is Allegedly 10 mph faster. That is Allegedly with a capital A. You will note the 308 has 5 speeds and the 560SL only has 4. If the 560SL had 5 speed it would maintain road superiority in all speed categories over the Ferrari 308 GTSi.

So I guess you could say that with the M120, I could beat the Ferrari 308 GTSi in all speed categories even if the transmission were stuck in 4th gear. I guess I should declare victory and go home, but there is only one problem, "I want that 5th gear" When MB went to 5 gears they unfortunately went electronic.

I suppose your going to tell me that the 560SL and Ferrari 308's are both boat anchors when it comes to performance. I know, but keep it quiet, this whole reply is all just a really good BS story.
