I have mixed feelings about your possible purchase.
The Good: Original owner in his 60s with a service history.
The Bad: In my opinion, the Brabus modification (tough re-sale).
The Mediocre: The mileage is a tad high, but not bad.
But to answer one of your questions in a direct manner: Brabus will put ungodly horsepowered and torqued engines (if you ask them) that are excessive for certain cars. I'd also be concerned about that, but I'm referring more to something like an SLK - E55s are a lot of chassis and body and I think they can handle somewhat more than Mercedes offered in the 2000 E55.
