2006 E55 AMG?

I was looking at purchasing a new car and I want something sporty and fun I was looking at some M3ís the. I found a W211 E55. I did my research as you do and I found it has some issues with the heat exchanger and auxiliary water pump pretty simple stuff it looks like and I can replace these parts easy I was a BMW technician for a part of my life; other than that they seem to be very reliable and a good road trip car besides the gas mileage, but will this be a good car for me to buy and keep the one I am look at buying has 80k miles full exhaust and a pulley





TL;DR

Buying a new car soon I want a 06 E55 thatís got mods with 80k miles should I buy

Get into the W211 AMG sub-forum. Lots of technically minded folks in it.

Also try to think it over why AMG models sell so cheap after few years.

Yes, much higher priced parts, higher insurance and may have been beaten daily. May I suggest test driving an E500 or E550 series with the normally aspirated V-8 engine? You have to step up to the current E450 dual turbo V-6 nowadays just to match the power of the older V-8s

The 2019 E450 at 362/369 is putting out more power than the W211 E55 at 469/516 or the W211 E63 at 507/465?
