    The time has come. What a shame you have to sell it. I have the same thoughts about the C43.

    What are getting to replace it ?

    Anyone who wants a first class C36, Alps is stunning nearly as well looked after as mine :rolleyes: :rolleyes:.

    All the best with the sale, who ever buys it will have a great car.

    Thanks Peter, it is a shame, shes running like a dream at the moment too!

    Making way for a W211 E55, been speaking to a few forum members regarding them, but have a specific spec in mind, looks like its gonna be a long wait till one comes up.

    so if anyone does see one which isnt in the press (autotrader, ebay, pistonheads) then let me know!

    must have at least, low milage, keyless, pana roof, command, parktronic.... the more other bits it has the better!

    Whats your definition of low mileage?
    Any particular colour? All those extras could be hard to find

    E55,

    under 40K would be acceptable for me, in silver

    im willing to wait till i find onw with the spec i want, even got the in-laws corsa lined up as an "in-between car!", I know it took you 8 months to find one... but wasnt it worth the wait ? ;) its very tempting to go for something less spec`d, but i know id regret not having the missing toys!



    :)

    I waited 8 months but at times I wondered if I would ever find a car!

    You should find one with all the spec. Pano roof is nice to have but it can be expensive to fix if it goes wrong. I think your biggest issue will be finding one with low mileage.
    Low mileage ones will go quick as a there not many around.

    Be prepared to pay a small premium for a low mileage one.

    Good luck

    Alps - your car does sound like a nice one, and I know you've looked after it well (I remember the brand new MB gearbox all those years back! - ££££!)

    Might be worth including a link to the 'for sale' advert in your sig, and perhaps offer a price for it with the upgraded wheels and the Alpine stuff (I've never seen the install but assume it took quite a lot of time for fitting etc, seems a shame to lose that :))

    Best of luck with the E55 hunt, awesome power and they seem like great value these days :cool:

    Edit - have you got any pics - will help a great deal also IMHO :)

    before someone says anything, the panels are the same color, the shadows and light of day made them look different shade!
