New to MB... Buying an E55 AMG, Car hasn't been moved since 2007
Hey guys as the title states... I am new to Mercedes Benz. I was given the opportunity to buy a friends mother's 2004 E55 AMG. The car has 7000 Original Miles on it. The reason I am posting up is the car has been setting outside and hasn't moved an inch or been started since 2007. I tried to start it but the battery was obviously dead and was told by my friend it would have to be towed to a dealer to be "reset" before it would start anyways... What does this mean? Is this true? and Also since the car has set so long do you guys think the engine will be okay? seals, gaskets, valves? Any red flags I should be worried about? If you all were to buy this fine car what would be your approach at getting it back on the road?
Any and all help is appreciated!
