2008 S63 AMG
Sleeper S63

Well, group, I've been absent for a minute... I experienced oil leaks coolant leaks and power loss. So I took my S63 offline to have new gaskets, valve cover, intake cover, crank seal, timing cover, water pump. control arms, brakes, rotors, sensors, and brake system flush I'm 80% complete to get it back to the standard of where I want it to be... Majority of the work was covered under extended warranty. My out of pocket was $4874.13 Total bill was 11930.11 It runs smoothly with no effort in accelerating. It's a sleeper because I keep it factory and plain. A few M BMW owners learned that rather quick LOL!

Glad to hear it all turned out OK + extended warranty paid for itself!
That's a long laundry list! What year + how many miles before all the above work done? Driven hard, bad roads,...?
I have a 2016 + glad I got the extended warranty + prepaid maintenance...

2008 S63 AMG
2008 W221 with 64000 miles to date. The previous owner did some upkeep but cut corners on some of it... I'm getting everything back to my standards of what an AMG is... Extended warranty paid for a lot of the work. I was surprised because they like to not pay for this kind of maintenance. I'm80 percent of where it will be in operating and appearance. I daily inspect the car for leaks signs of wear and tear. Before I drive it I let the oil warm up to 176 in temp. It runs better. I have done a cold start and roll just to see the difference in how it operates.

I had a 2008 and I loved it SO MUCH! It cost $10k in repairs in the first 2 months I owned it, most covered by the extended warranty. After 2 years I got a 2012 instead. Had that for about 2-3 years and then got a 2018. They're all GREAT!!! In some ways, my 2008 was the prettiest of them all. Loved the bland silver color with silver wheels.
