    What 'purpose' does your big AMG Saloon serve?

    MPG - its worthwhile alone telling people you get a real 18mpg or 25 on an economy run... When they bore you with 55mpg at 47mph..... Local Shell garages all know me well and always ask how the E is going - thankfully very well I can say again!! If you are going to buy a bear - make sure its...

    Would anyone buy a e63 private sale?

    I'd say yes - considering selling privately carries its risks as well no-one has mentioned! Warranty on E63 is ~ £1700 a year with no excess, Unless its risen significantly since 2019.. Full AMG dealer history is a must upto 5 years old I'd say - Servicing with said dealer also gives a years...

    So sweeping around a very large roundabout leaning on the nearside tyres if you see what I mean, and turn onto the dual carriageway exit & the car starts shaking with speed related rumbling from the rear from 35 mph +.
