I became interested in the Mercedes line a short time ago when we began looking for a daily driver/trip car. Needed something larger (than our Mini Cooper) and more fun to drive with hopefully better mpg than my Chev Avalanche (8.1 liter). I used to have a 1984 Lincoln MK 7 SLT and was thinking about something like it, but did not want a front wheel drive and was seeing many of the MB so...hmmm. So, test drove a C320, then a E55, got hooked and finally ran across the one we bought. This is one of the most fun to drive comfortable cars I have owned. The mpg is not quite what I was going for initially, but what the heck, the fun factor more than compensates.

We just purchased a 2001 E55 AMG, 77K on the odomenter. I am having a few electronics issues and of course have to replace both passenger side window regulators, otherwise the car is in outstanding condition. However, I am having a bit of confusion over the exact mode,l so maybe somone can help...

2001 E55 AMG. 5.4 supercharged, red/charcoal interior with dark wood trim. When I tried the vin locater on this site it gave me an older vehicle. The supercharger seems to be the issue...All vin/body/engine numbers are sound and consistant. All equipement is OEM. On the W210 I do not find the 5.4 supercharged edition, but the W211 shows only for the 2002 and on.

Any help is appreciated.
