Description:

Hello everyone,

It's finally time to sell my C55 AMG. This is a two-owner car; I originally purchased this car in 2009 with 46,000 miles, and I've had it for 9-1/2 years now with a total of 218,000 miles.

Through 2016, this was a daily driver Georgia car, and now is a Michigan car (including the winters).

This car is fully loaded:
- Diamond black metallic paint (it's actually a dark blue, and recently polished in October)
- Black leather interior (in excellent condition, surprisingly)
- Navigation (with the last version DVD from 2015)
- Black birds eye maple wood trim
- Chrome split-5 spoke wheels from a CLK55 with new tires all around
- Rubber floor mats/trunk liner
- Extra odds/ends/bits

What doesn't work or needs attention:
- Rear sunshade (the torx-style internal gear mechanism stripped)
- Driver side bottom seat heater (most common failure in these cars)
- Sunroof needs to be cleaned & re-greased (old grease seizes the motor from opening/closing)
- Passenger side door lock is intermittent; it may need replacement in the future (I recently replaced the driver side)
- The suspension is worn out - all parts of it
- The engine leaks significant oil from multiple locations - about 1 quart per 1,000 miles

Overall, this has been a FANTASTIC car over the past decade, but now it's definitely time to go to the next owner. I foresee this car as an awesome car for anyone who wants to put in a little wrench time to change out the suspension bits, or just leave it as is and enjoy it/use it. The A/C works, electronics work, all of the basics all work without issue.

All original books, window sticker, etc will be included. This is the best deal currently on the market for a C55, and while it does have 218,000 miles, it hasn't been beat to the ground to get there.

Please message me if you have any questions.

None, looking to buy
IMO it would be worth it to fix the starter so you at least have a runner. You could probably command another $1k for a <$500 fix. Nice ad though. I have the same car (and color) only mine is an 06 with 175k. Still feels solid.

Just replaced the rear tires, so now it has new tires all the way around!

I've also gone ahead and ordered the sunroof lube so I can get the sunroof working again.

Funny how when you sell stuff it's the best it's been in a while...
