New MB owner

Whats up guys/gals, new MB owner here from Buffalo, NY.

Just picked her up last night and loving it! 2000 E430 AMG, 4matic. Previously I was building show cars(compact tuners) and just lost the interest. Always wanted a MB and finally had the chance and couldnt pass it up.

Here's some pics....please forgive me for the dark pics and the dirty car. By the time I got it home last night it was about dark, so couldnt do a whole lot.

After work today going home to detail her, and hopefully slap my rims on. Well, onto the pics.....C&C welcome

Congratulations and welcome to Benzworld!

It looks nice but MB did not produce any 2000 E430 AMG of which I am aware. There was a 2000 E55 AMG produced but the E430 has a different engine. Some people have placed an AMG badge on their cars, so that is probably the answer. I can see it's pretty fully optioned by looking at the dashboard switches. In case you are unaware a loaded E430 is a rare animal; I know because I've been looking for one for a long time.

thanks for the welcome guys! After looking around, I realise its not an AMG. Previous owner mentioned AMG so I just took his word for it. :stupidme:

oh well, that wouldnt have changed my mind on the purchase regardless.

Thanks again for the info, and warm welcome. I'll have some better pics up tonight hopefully with some rims and a detail

Nice choice and nice model year. I would bet the previous owner threw on some AMG rims and then called it an AMG. I hope you didn't overpay because you thought it was an AMG!!

Congratulations looks real sharp. From the pictures it looks to be an E430 Sport 4matic with replacement AMG wheels.

Check out the W210 forum.

We love pictures.
