JAB12 bid $25,500
@Blakleyleonard “Some that do are not authentic papers” Huh? I’ll just leave that right there until @thembmarket answers my (our) questions. Thank you for your input. I’m sure its a very nice car.
@TheMBMarket can you please clarify the question since your market insight take and first hand experience driving this car implies that it is a pre merger AMG car? It is evident it has gone through a restoration as it looks very clean, but AMG 'look' is not the same as Pre Merger AMG. Some of us would like to decide if we bid on it or not, and having full transparency on the origin of the pre merger AMG 'tag' on this example would swing the decision. Seems like the seller doesn't know, which is fair, but we'd like some clarity please. We're not just tire kicking here. Thank you.
@PCM1 very nice interesting car. Seems well preserved. Can you please post the AMG part numbers on the body kit?, I can't make photo 181 and the next has water spots. Front and rear bumper should have them accessible. Thank you.
@GSXR thanks for the quick response. As always, your wealth of knowledge is much appreciated.
@GSXR do you know if this kit will fit my car?
Whoever wins this, please contact me if you are interested in the correct pre facelift '500 E' trunk badge for this example. GLWA.
For the wellbeing of my wallet, thankfully this one is white. Pretty neat example. Good luck with Auction.
This seller is local to me. Great to deal with and total car enthusiasts. Bid with confidence..
@gsxrThat bidding is still going on. They are good guys, local to me.
Thanks @gsxr I drove the E to work today so was extra motivated.....
@Dallas , come to Miami in a few months and I'll buy you a beer and give you a ride. Well done.
The AMG wheels alone are worth the price of admission. Good luck with the auction!
@UI_Classics can you please post paint meter readings so that we can settle the questions surrounding paint.
when you want a car you want a car. Congratulations @mbzcollector . Enjoy in good health!
The way I grew up around cars, its service records and all prior documentation are part of the car, not part of the selling price of the car. I don't get it. Good luck with the auction. I've owned 2 of these, both low mileage, currently have a '99 in the garage with less mileage than this. With the proper maintenance they last forever. Fun cars indeed.
@Mouse19 Thank you for posting the paint meter readings.
@Mouse19I did some research, it's stock suspension. waiting on paint metering before I bid. Thank you.
@Mouse19photo No. 210 shows Bilstein shocks. Other photos as well. Will wait for the paint readings. Thank you.
@Mouse19 Can you please post paint meter readings and clarify if any paintwork os present on this car. Also, car has a lowered stance. What suspension springs are present. I can see Bilsteins on one of the photos but can’t make out the springs. Thank you.
