Factory 17″ double-spoke wheels were replaced with staggered 18” AMG five-spoke wheels measuring 245/40 up front and 265/35 in the rear. The AMG wheels wear Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 tires that were added in 2018.

The front air shocks were replaced with Arnott units in 2019 and both front axles/CV units were replaced in 2020. Both rear air shocks were also replaced at the MB dealer in 2015 according to the VMI. The leak-free suspension reportedly does not settle or drop during extended parking periods. The suspension can be further tuned to Sport 1 or Sport 2 settings which lowers the car between .6 and .8 inches while stiffening the suspension and steering for spirited driving.

The multi-function steering wheel fronts factory instrumentation including an analog clock, a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and digital gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The dashboard houses the climate controls, an infotainment screen, a 6-disc CD changer, a pop-out storage cubby, and a lockable glovebox.

This one really has it all... For three brief years in the mid-2000s, Mercedes-Benz made what may be the perfect “do-it-all” car that offered reliable M113 V8 power (topping 300+ horses), comfortable seating for seven, cargo room sufficient for a month-long vacation and all-wheel drive traction to power that vacation into the Rockies: the 2004-06 E500 4Matic wagon offered everything a buyer could reasonably want in a single vehicle household and did it with classic, round-headlight Mercedes styling. While some argue that the AMG variant of this V8 wagon setup trumps the E500 – and it does in terms of performance and aggressive looks – the repair bills (or just the brake rotor replacement bills) that come along with W211 AMG ownership are enough to keep this E500 running for half a decade or more. And therein lies the question: Why did Mercedes stop making a non-AMG version of the S211 E-class wagon after 2006? While we may not ever know the answer, we know that finding one of these V8 AWD family haulers in pristine condition (and a rare color combination) like this one is becoming incredibly difficult in today’s wagon-thirsty marketplace. Coupled with the right roof rack accessories, the right preventative maintenance records and a VMI detailing all of the other mechanical repair this seven-seater has received over the years, this becomes the perfect platform for anyone’s daily duties or awesome adventures. The only non-AMG path into a V8 Mercedes-Benz wagon is through the 2004-06 E500 Estate. So, act fast if you need an adventure-mobile for the summer. They don’t come around in this condition (or color) very often and the market has long-since noticed their appeal.
