its a w211 im lookin for the supercherged one

hmmm i'll lookin into the 02 plate one again but i'd rather not buy from trade

a well looked after private example is what i'd prefer

i'll check it out again

theres also this other one on a 04 plate but its got 93k on the clock whihc is quite alot and if i was to get merc teir 1 warrenty it'll only be for a year because the car has to be under 100k at the time you take out the warrenty

That looks good although maybe a little too cheap?

Mine is Tektite Grey - most people think it is black so easy mistaker to maker.

Agree that looks very cheap for a 2005 model E55........got me thinking why

yeh i noticed its grey but looked black in the pics

the 05 plate does seem cheap

thing is maybe its just me but i always get cautious of buying from trade

thats why i'd rather wait for a clean private one to come up

none of those cars are making me think yeh thats the one

I can appreciate an inherited distrust of dealers but I would say don't discount them out of hand.

I don't trust any non-franchised dealers myself but I bought mine from a dealer who turned out to be excellent. I had no knowledge of them prior, and only had a few Google results to go on (they are a Maserati specialist).

I also took a punt on a dirtbox once and found myself a good independent chap as well.

There are a couple on the Merc website but they are top dollar (as you'd expect). One of them is cheaper than the other - not sure what your budget is...

i have a budget of around 12k

i was ready to buy a CLS55 AMG from mercedes which fell through which was up at around £20k

i wouldn't mind buying the right car for right money

its just finding the right car that takes time

i just sold my E39 M5 i used to own and still have a 530iA which i use as my daily

i'm in no hurry anyway so i can wait 6 months to a year
