    Yup I would guess starship mileage.

    There's an article about W208 CLK55s in M-BE mag. this month (saying how cheap they are now).

    That's been for sale for a good few weeks now.

    There's a link on the forum somewhere.

    As for high mileage, there was a CLK55 for sale recently with 190K+ miles on it. :)

    What's 'high mileage' these days anyway?!? :confused:

    Its a different car ....

    Reg is S222 MEE on the month old one , and even allowing that it might be a personal plate ( albeit a terrible one ) the add from CP Cars in Nottingham says it's a Y reg ....

    The one on Autotrader is on a X plate and is in Iver Heath ....

    Would guess engine is just fine with regular oil changes but what about all the mechanicals..at 140K will bits not need replacing all over the beast? Surely a grand or 2 more with 60K fewer miles would be a better?

    I would personally steer well clear of any car that has been chipped, remapped etc. That is me and I'm sure there are excellent examples of these cars that heave been breathed upon, but look on Youtube and see how these little minx drive their nchipped cars. A performance increase is done for a reason and an AMG is a highly tuned beast.

    The AMG range is quite literally bartgain basement and if you are serious about buying one then there are some very nice bargains out there. You know however just how thirsty these beasts are.

    Good luck

    Regards
    John

    That's right John , and thats putting me off , the ' remap ' ..... like you need more than 367 bhp ?

    Suggests that it may have been driven hard quite often to me ...

    Knowing also how expensive the AMG specific bits for this car are , and that they will soon be wearing out is also a concern

    You know it makes sense, looks like seriously good value...

    Any idea on the mileage on this one? I could possibly have a look for you as it's literally round the corner from me...
