There's a 2000 E55 for sale

It's in our local paper. 50-60K miles. Says everything works.

Private seller is asking US $25K. I'm not interested in buying it but I am curious about the price. Is that reasonable?

PS I looked at a car on Friday badged 560 SEL and when I popped the hood it had a 6 cyl engine. Didn't it lose like a couple of cylinders somewhere?

PPS I like looking at M-B cars for sale. It's a cheap pasttime (so far).

The absolutely best reason I could come-up with to buy it would be to show-off to my brothers. Both of them are into rice, one has a 92 RX-7 (I think it's 92, the last year anyway) and the other has a Supra collection (one runs, the others are for yard ornamentation).


They sneer at my old-fart's cars. I told them both I'd be delighted to race them. The route will be from here to San Francisco to Bangor and home.

No takers.

PS Brian, the garage thing STILL bothers me. Damn!

Take the badging off it and show them the vehicle. Don't open the hood.

AMGs finally getting to you guys, huh? Insurance cost will be nothing compared to the tires you'll be eating through!

That's a great price. I love my E55. I've debadged it for extra stealth. I've thought about supercharging it but will probably end up getting a 211 E55 instead.

I've always been a fan of sleepers, so the reason I like it (and the 500E) is that it's so damn plain, almost ugly.
I'd say the stock ones are ugly. However, I've seen some modified ones that pretty sharp.
