Default Just sold

I just sold my e 430 last week , bought the S500. I needed more room.

E55-
Great car
Not real comfortable
Old body style- New e-class alredy being built.
Fast but not real fast, roll on power is best.
too many old body E's on the road to feel special.
Wholesale #'s are still too high to make them interesting
Look cool
For the most part ,only Merc owners know what they are.

once again -lot of money for an outdated bodystyle.

If the cost of the E55 is close to a M5, I would take a close look at the BMW! I love MB but if you are looking for perfomance the M5 is much faster..

Here's one that was sold last week at the auction I attend. Remember, this is a WHOLESALE PRICE.

2001 E55 AMG 12,048 Miles Black $54,000

I have a sweet 2000 E430 Sport in Glacier White with Java Interior, current mileage is 21k. It's my personal driver and it doesn't have a mark on it anywhere. Let me know if anybody is interested.

big diff between e55 and a sport suv. Why not go for the latest and greatest Porsche Cayenne.

War- sounds nice .You could really drive a 430 for ever it's a great midsize hp sedan. What's next?

I agree w/ you on the M . Have you heard about the new M7. It looks unbelievable.

e55? That's one damn nice car, and it's fast too.

I don't think you can go wrong with that pick!

F34PC, I work for BRABUS and know the E55 very well, the vehicle is an overall great car, the only thing the vehicle seems to lack is in the suspension, as far as performance changes this and the wheels are the items I have found that customers change the most.

If the price is right get it, but like the other guys said the new chassis is on its way, the new W211 will be released in the states this September, below is the link to BRABUS if you want to take a sneek peek at the new W211, the current chassis is a W210 in case you did'nt know.

GOOD LUCK

You got any leads for a blower setup that I can make work on my '99 SL500 (3V)? I know Lorinser makes a bolt-on kit but don't know how much custom crap is involved. I don't want to crack open the mill, so I am not really looking for the usual Brabus approach (bore/stroke/port/cams).
