Personally, I think the head bolt issue is entirely too overblown. Ive owned six E63 cars between 2007-2009 and none have ever had head bolt issues. These cars ranged from very low miles (20k) to 150k+ miles and never once were head bolts a problem. Frankly, I had more issues with camshaft position sensors, etc. but that's all manageable stuff. With less that .01% of cars being impacted by backing-out or failing head bolts, I personally don't see it as a necessary predicate to ownership or an absolute imperative to fix following acquisition. The percentage of failure is just too small, all things considered. Beautiful coupe - GLWA!
Very well bought and sold - Congrats!
@Jbrauner with the last second heat!
Nice bidding action on this one - these E430s have been totally undervalued for too long...maybe not anymore? GLWA!
@aksharaminCongrats! Way to go!
@aksharaminYeah buddy! Nice job!
May wallet says No, but everything else in me screams Yes - you must own this! I cant resist.
@EuropeanCIt looks like the car is located in Atlanta, GA
Wow. This is a tremendous amount of car for under $8k!
Congrats - nicely done!
I have an E500 wagon in this same color (Everest Green Metallic) and its absolutely fantastic - totally variable in sun/shade and really looks handsome on the W211 body. Great car - GLWA!
Wow! That was incredible!! Congrats to @paulmarianetti & @thembmarket !!
Congrats! Well bought and sold!
Reserve is off! HERE WE GO!
We've got some good action on this one!
15 minutes left - Here we go!
I LOVE those rear jumpseats
@Greig1756 I think thats probably the case (that the car hasn't been driven much at all) but hopefully the seller will confirm. If you look at the carfax, the car hasn't traveled more that 1,000 miles in the last ten years (2011) so its not inconsistent for the car to have not moved much in the past five years either.
@Greig1756 Looks to me like MB of Pittsburgh inputted the wrong mileage on that single service visit. Ive had that happen on the reports for a few of my cars in the past, actually. Given the consistency of mileage in all 33+ other service records/mileage recordings (and the fact that its only 2k miles off), I would be extremely surprised if it were anything beyond that. Besides, it would be a very strange move to "rollback" a car only 2k miles. haha. Great color combo - GLWA!
@Dmitriyf1 It only takes two determined bidders to make for a positive auction result, so who knows?
@OliverPlante I actually love the factory pinstripe on 80s & 90s MBs. Its definitely a dated option but offers some nostalgic appeal, IMO. Its not difficult at all to remove, fortunately, but I'd keep it if it were mine. GLWA, Seller!
@M3INABUFU By comparison, the last known public sale for one of these AMG 3.4 Widebody coupes was approximately $150k USD in 2020. Mileage was almost identical to this one but it was silver/black and had been converted by AMG Japan, not AMG Affalterbach as here.
@internetholding Coming very soon...stay tuned!
