Evening chaps, i'm new here - have been lurking for a while but couldn't get an e-mail address that the site could approve....
Anyway, after flirting with E55 wagons I decided to bite the bullet & buy a 2012 E63 wagon - I've had it 4 months & use it daily....what a car...I love it..!!
Had been after one for sometime but wanted to buy local from a dealer & it's just as well I did as it's had a couple of issues.
The parking brake was sticky so the garage replaced the pedal gear & linkage etc & now it's back in having the panoramic roof refurbed - it was so slow to close I had to have it fixed under warranty.
Other than these two minor issues it's been epic..!!
Off to Germany in a few weeks & I fully intend to stretch it's legs on the autobahn..!!
Such a capable car - perfect for wafting & amazing in manual mode on B roads...such a beast..
Planning a LSD and possible a soft re-map in the future.
I'm based in Dorset & would welcome any pointers to local AMG specialist as it'll need a service this year.
Happy Days..!!

Sounds very nice. Got any photos?

I had to replace my foot brake last year,; what a rubbish system. I’m just waiting for my wife’s to start sticking. The car is 3 years old and starting to show the early signs.

Anyhow, enjoy!

Welcome to the forum Jonboy. Not far away from you in Poole.
There is a decent indy in Poole called Star-Tech who have used a couple of times.
Home | Star Tech service centre Poole

For servicing, I use MBS in Southampton who have looked after my 2 previous Mercedes and my current E55.
I won't go anywhere else having built a good relationship with them
MBS of Southampton - The Mercedes-Benz Specialist

When it comes to a remap, check out MSL Performance in Birmingham. Its a way to travel but they are the go to company for tuning an AMG. They can also do you a deal on a Quaife LSD at the same time.

Ah of course. I’ve never been a fan of light colours but since buying my wife’s white convertible I think they look great.

Very nice indeed!

Thanks - I looked @ silver but it looked bland, I looked @ black but they looked to understated & I looked at grey but the cream leather was not family friendly..!! - I looked & test drove the white one 3 times before finally agreeing a price & an essential 12 month warranty....
Personally I think white with black leather is the best colour...but I would eh...:)

Thanks for the pointers, I work in Poole & drive the Cranbourne Road daily - perfect commute if you ask me...
Had heard about MSL on other forums so will contact then when the need for a remap comes along..
Hadn't heard of MBS so will look them up - have been recommended a place in Corfe Mullen "Hamilton Auto Tech" but I don't know much about them.
I've not seen an E55 in the Poole area but have spotted an W211 E63 on Gravel Hill a few times...….

Yeah I’ve never been a fan of silver at all. My E350 estate is black and with the blacked out windows everyone calls it a hearse.

My wife’s is the same as yours white with black interior and really impressed.

Not heard of Hamilton Auto Tech either:dk:
E55's are very thin on the ground around here. I've seen only on,e and two E63's.

Richard Hamilton (Hamilton Auto Tech) used to be the head technician at the Merc dealership in Poole before setting up his own business a few years ago. When I lived in Bournemouth he was the only one who touched my old E320.

Top bloke, with ALL the main dealer tools and computer gear... highly recommended.
