W203 C32 AMG!

Due to changing jobs I’m going to be covering many more miles and am therefore reluctantly selling my 2003 Supercharged 3.2 V6, C32 AMG.

This particular car is fairly well known on the forum – It used to belong to ‘Bobby Dazzler’ who had the car for 10 years.. A search of Bobby’s 10K or so posts will reveal lots more info about the car than I can write here!

I am the 4th owner

Performance: Figures below recorded by Autocar,
BHP: 354
0-60: 4.1 Seconds
30-70: 3.9 Seconds
60-0: 2.6 seconds
Top speed: 177 MPH / 155 MPH limited

Economy:
Surprisingly good – on a round trip to Lichfield recently (200 miles for me) the OBC read 32.8 MPG (Motorway, sat on cruise at 70 the whole way).

Spec:
Rare Bi Xenon HID Headlights
Genuine AMG Boot Spoiler
AMG III 17” Staggered Alloy wheels, with almost new premium Tyres All round (GY Eagle Assymetric 2 / Hankook equivalent)
COMAND 2.0 (Sat Nav, CD player & Changer, BOSE speakers)
3.5mm AUX input in glovebox for Phone / Ipod
Auto wipers, lights
Black Napa heated, electric memory seats
Auto gearbox, tuned by AMG
Electric windows, & heated powerfold mirrors
Auto dimming rear view mirror & driver wing mirror

Mileage:
Currently 130345 – Will go up as car in daily use for ~20 miles commute

MOT Expiry: 19 Dec 2016

History:
The car has a comprehensive amount of Service History – Up to 119k FMBSH, afterwards its been maintained primarily by avantgarde automotive Independent MB specialist in Clevedon, Somerset. An excel table below gives you all the history for the last 12 years or so., all backed up with receipts.

Under my ownership it’s had a new radiator, water pump, rear shocks, and front arms / bushes: so no big jobs left.

Generally, I’d describe the overall condition as pretty good, although you can judge from the photos (Will be uploaded shortly).


Known not so good points:
Corrosion wise, there are a couple of small bubbles on the bonnet – the worst being on the leading edge above the grill. Wings / Arches all good as previous owner had them re-sprayed and waxoiled.

CD Changer is a bit temperamental (Sometimes won’t read CD’s…. )

Few odd stone chips, as to be expected on a 13 year old car.

Passenger heated seat base intermittent (Drivers replaced by MB warranty by Previous owner)


Price:
Always difficult to value these things – Fully decommissioned C32’s have asking prices of 10k, whereas multiple owner, missing history high milers are going for around 3.5k.

I value this somewhere in the middle,

£4995 ovno

Cant seem to edit posts:

0-60 Should be 4.6, not 4.1

Also the car is on H&R springs as the AMG rears are known for breaking.
