Cleaned MAF and it made things 10x better, but for a fleeting moment. Symptoms returned and so did CEL. Replaced MAF and everything smoothed out, acceleration/vibration/idle- all good, for a half hour. CEL light is back on with p0100 code. Acceleration hasn't changed, still doesn't feel heavy or sluggish anymore. Rough idle and vibration sporadicly making appearances.
If I leave it off for awhile the whole car sits down. When I restart it and put it in gear it raises and runs like nothings wrong. I reset fault and ride perfect.

Just bought a 2001 S55 AMG with 67000 miles. Very clean, been maintained at BENZ dealer all along. Only issue I see so far, which I am not sure is significant, is that the temperature gauge starts normally low in the morning and then levels off around above 80 but sometimes fluctuates between 80-100 but never reaches 100. No leaks, no noises, no overheating, not sure what the ideal temperature is. Not sure if thermostat been changed.
