    At least it has genuine 18' AMG alloys and is a well specced example. Ad an AMG kit and it would make a nice car.

    but it is not an AMG so why the fake badge?
    all present s500 owners can now badge s55AMG as it has a 5.5 v8

    Seems expensive for a very high mileage E430.

    All the downsides of a large petrol V8, without the +ves of AMG kudos and bodykit, but strangely more expensive...

    There's an E55 linked on here with less miles for over a grand less that's already sold!

    Yes I agree Will, I think many E430 owners want the AMG kudos without realising the real AMGs have dropped like a lead balloon and are actually cheaper, but there wont be a huge difference in running costs for a huge difference in performance, kinda negates buying an E430 really

    Not as rare as the mystical C23 AMG. They're supercharged too. I once heard a rumour about a rumour that someone once knew someone who saw one!

    C23s sound pretty common then - not at all rare and desirable :D

    How about C18s?

    Or what about the A14, although I fear you can only drive them between Felixstowe and Rugby

    Looks like it's had some money spent on it , but it would bother me that it is 'upbadged' ... would suggest to me that it's been ragged because the owner is trying to prove that he has a proper 55 all the time.
