Questions about CLK55 AMG's?

Hello Fellow Members, I have a couple questions for you all.

I'm interested in the CLK55 AMG Series , looking around to buy one now.

I was just curious if anyone knows what the Reliability/repairs are on these cars. I know that it will be reliable for the most part as it's a hand built engine.

I'm looking at a 2004 CLK55 AMG with about 50,000Mi -$24K
2005 with 70,000Mi - $20K

both are Black on black coupes both seem to be all original.

What you guys think?

Yes, the engine is hand built, but being an AMG just means the liklihood it's had the beejeezus run out of it is a lot higher. Pay me now or pay me later, i.e. get a thorough pre-purchase inspection and be prepared to pay for it. Check insurance rates for this car while you're at it.
