2005 Mercedes Benz CLS-55 AMG

I've owned this car since September 2017 and it's a lovely car, however having enjoyed the CLS 55 AMG I now feel like upgrading to a C63 AMG.

I will update the listing with further photos later tomorrow. The car has not been washed but I'll update with new photos when I've cleaned it this weekend.

The car is 2005 (05) plate car, in obsidian black, with black nappa leather.

This car formally belonged to whitenemesis on here.

The car is a Euro 4 Petrol 4 Car, meaning that is not subject to ULEZ or T-Charge emissions charges. Furthermore, as it is a Pre March 2006 car this is also in the lower ~£300 tax band, the 2006 cars are in the ~£500 tax band.

The car has COMAND, Bi-Xenon Headlamps with Curve, Lingatronic, Dynamic Seats, Heated Memory Seats, Harmon Kardon LOGIC 7 Sound, Power Boot Closing, Airmatic Suspension, Mercedes HFP Bluetooth and all features work as intended. There are no error lights present.

It comes with a 8 Month MOT and the remainder of a 2 Year 5* comprehensive Dealer Level warranty (This covers most / all items except wear and damage) Please contact me and I can provide a copy of the policy booklet that details the exclusions, all other items apart from what is excluded is covered. As this warranty is 5* it also pays main dealer labour rates!

This warranty is transferrable to the new keeper and has been fully paid for until November 2020 - That’s serious peace of mind for such a complex car.

Both keys are present with the car, along with all service books, manuals and a full folder of service history, the V5 and the MOT certificate.

The car has recently been serviced at Wayne Gates Mercedes Benz and has been looked after with no expense spared.

The car is backed up with a complete full Service History, with servicing up until 90-100,000 miles being carried out with Mercedes Benz, before going to established Mercedes Specialists where the car has been maintained such as:

Prestige Car Services (PCS - Horndean)

MBS of Southampton

Wayne Gates - London

COMAND Online - Lightwater

The above specialists are very well regarded as the best go to guys on the Mercedes Owners Forum and MBClub.

The car has had new Xenon headlamps fitted in 2015-16 as these often discolour and fade with age, with the new headlamps it looks very fresh and up-to date. It has also had OSRAM DRL (daytime running lights) and foglamps fitted to update the look of the car. It has been professionally installed and works brilliantly.

Recent work to the car includes:

Rocker and Breather seals & gaskets replaced and resealed

Propshaft rubber mount

Both Castor arms

New Airmatic Compressor and Relay

New Airmatic Passenger side strut

New Alternator (& coolant change)

New BOSCH AGM S5 AGM Battery

New Front AGM Battery

New Battery Control Module

New Pirelli P-Zero rear tyres (1,000 miles ago)

New Michelin Pilot Super Sports front tyres (2,000 miles ago)

A-Service

In previous ownership it has also been extensively maintained, having notably benefited from:

New Dynamic seat pump

Gearbox and engine mounts

Gearbox oil and filter change (not due at present)

Wheel Bearings

Lambda Sensors

SBC is often a concern on these cars however I have had no issues with the car and you also have the reassurance of the excellent warranty provided with the car. I can provide the policy document to anyone that is interested.

The car has been fitted with the following extras and will be included for asking price:

Mercedes-Benz HFP Bluetooth Adaptor: Mercedes Bluetooth HFP Adapter

Location of the car is in London W12

The car is HPI Clear. The valuation on this car from Cazana is £9,500 without taking the options, extras, or warranty into account!

There are no scuffs or damage to the paintwork, there is no rust and the car just needs a wash.

I've driven it both in town and on long runs including to France and it's never caused me any problems.

Negative Points:

This car is over 10 years old, therefore there are a handful of minor stone chips on the bonnet. As with a car of this age there will be wear to the leather, however there are no rips tears or split seams.

The car has a very small ding in the front wing, it's minor and it can be pulled it (no paint is broken or damaged and it's about the size of a 10p coin. (I have a quote for £75 to remove it but it's below the repairers minimum cost for callout)


There is a small oil leak underneath the car from the rear main seal, it's not caused any concern and it's very common. (see Mercedes forums for RMS leak) I have a quote for this repair at £395. If you want it done before sale, I will arrange for it to be done.

Please note: Test drives will only be provided with proof of insurance and I will accompany all test drives.


No part exchanges, payment is only via Bank Transfer and car will only be released when paid into my account.


If paying cash this will need to be done over the counter and directly clear into my account.

Any questions please let me know.
 
Price is £8,750 (including the 2 year warranty, recent new tyres etc!)

I'll aim to get pictures up this week...
 
Finally had the time to resize the photos and attach...

Some points, I've not washed the car! Sorry!!

Second, I still have the wood interior trim and will provide it with the car. It's not to my taste hence the birds eye / maple / black wood was installed instead.

Finally, the car has Bluetooth for calls and also has an AUX Bluetooth adaptor that allows for streaming from your smartphone (runs by ignition - does not have any visible wiring). (Included with car!)

A few points:

The mileage is approx. 144,000

To answer a query, the warranty for the car covers the SBC, Airmatic Struts and other items (It's a 5* Policy that covers all items, unless specified in the exclusions list - unlike other warranties that only have specific items covered and all else excluded, they also pay independent / main dealer labour rates.)

The warranty has paid out for me, without any issues. They only didn't pay for worn suspension components.

If anyone would like the Registration number to carry out MOT / HPI checks, do let me know.
 
I have a set of Front Discs and Pads for the car. Not yet fitted as the car doesn’t need it yet but purchased it for as and when it is needed

If I get around to it - I’ll swing the car over to my specialist and get them fitted otherwise they will be included with the car and they can be replaced when it’s actually due.
 
New Tensioner fitted (old one was noisey)
New AC pump fitted
AC regassed - blowing perfectly cold.
New Drivebelt fitted.
 
Spark Plugs we’re also replaced in the last 3,000 or so miles. So won’t need to be worried about!
 
Price reduced to 8250
 
Priced at 7995 - only advertised here. No further price drops. I’ll just eBay / PistonHeads / AT it.
 
BUMP.

13 month MOT - Expiry 25 June 2020.

Warranty valid until November 2020.
 
Brand new Bosch battery fitted (replaced under warranty)

Also, for info this is the car that previously belonged to forum member whitenemesis
