Should I buy a 2008 Mercedes Benz E63

Well I've been looking at various automotive sites like autotrader and youcarz and this 2008 E63 Benz really caught my attention.

Just wondering if anyone in this forum has had any previous experience with this vehicle and if there is anything I should watch out for.

Your help is really appreciated!!!

It's about the same thing as a Ferrari or a Porsche. It's a toy.

Wonderful car, beautiful engine put together by an expert technician, looks of hot rod, all features for defensive driving, plus the comfort of a well thought cabin... and it can be yours if the price and cost of ownership don't scare you.

Every other consideration is subjective if all the maintenance and care schedules are kept.

Hope you'll enjoy it. jV

There is a forum devoted to the W211 E63 (scroll down from here and look for the AMG sub-section) and I would ask the actual owners for the specifics. I'd love to own one too. One thing I can tell you is that the various E-Class MBs are undergoing a chassis overhaul and the 2010 model year will introduce the W212. Therefore I would suspect the pre-owned W211 will sell for less than now pretty soon.

You mean they are not selling it in the US yet? They had promised early delivery, I thought this fellow was talking about the new one.

My apology to him, anyway an AMG is a great car no matter how you look at it.
So what I wrote goes.

Cheers, JV

Personally, I like the C63 better. A little less power, but I find the overall package more appealing. It's sportier somehow.

We have 2010 212's and the 2 door E 207's in stock at the dealer I work at. Not many but we have a few. I performed a PDI on one this week. It is a ok car if you like the looks. Similar to a new C class interior styling. But as far as a E63, I would not say it is the same as a Ferrari or Porsche. You can easily use a E63 as a everyday car. Still functions and drives like a E550 or 350 even, but there is more if you step all the way down on the pedal. Later model 211's have worked through many of the earlier issues. Never really became a fan of the 63, still biased to the supercharged 55. But the rest of the car is better on the 63.
