S211 E55K AMG Estate, E36 M3 Evo track car,
September 2005 (55 reg) E55 AMG Estate, 115,800 miles (increasing slightly with daily use.) The MOT runs for 1 year to 15 Nov 2020. The price is £11,950 and the car is in Guildford.

See lots of photos at the end of this post.

The is a 5.4L Supercharged V8 469bhp 516 lb/ft torque

I have owned this car since November 2015, it has just one previous owner (a vet in Brighton) and full main dealer service history, I have both keys, all documentation, it is registered at my address in Guildford and the car is in excellent condition for the age. I have serviced it at MB specialists, mostly Prestige Car Services in Horndean and Merc Medics in Woking. I am going abroad at the start of January for a few months, if I cannot sell the car before then I will store it while I am away.

Some of the key features:
  • Brilliant silver exterior with cognac leather and black-anthracite birds eye maple trim
  • Active driving dynamics seats (side bolsters actively move) with massage function, heating memory and variable lumbar support
  • Bi-Xenon headlights
  • Sun protect darkened rear windows
  • Harman Kardon Logic 7 premium surround sound system 810 and rear TV screen
  • Memory seats/steering column/mirrors inc passengers
  • 200mph speedo
  • Glass sunroof and 3 zone air con
  • Rear sun blinds

I have upgraded the Bluetooth for the Kufatec Fiscon Pro system. This gives full phone and music integration all controlled by the steering wheel, I tried multiple systems and unlike most others (and the inbuilt MB system) it works really well.

The engine is standard and certainly feels very strong. I am all for a fast car and considered performance upgrades, but considered I can barely use the full power for more than two or three seconds as it is, and I would get more fun out of improving the lovely waffley noise a little. So one cat has had the internals removed, this achieves the aim and makes a nice subtle increase in full throttle sound without droning on the motorway. It passes the MOT emissions tests very easily.

Bought Nov 2015, one previous owner, 79,000 miles and full MB service history and 1 year full warranty
I made full use of the warranty to fix any issues including gear box sensor causing occasional late gear changes, seat (seatbelt) sensor replaced and SBC brake hold function not working correctly.

Price adjusted to £11,450 as I don't have long before going abroad at the start of January and my preference is to sell it before going.

And for the record this is actually rated at 476 bhp!

This is also advertised elsewhere.
