Back on the MB forums again

Hello everyone,

My names Matt im 25 year old business entrepreneur living in Canada. Im back on the MB forums again, i cant seem to get away from Mercedes vehicles. My first car was a 1995 S320 man i loved that car, ended up selling it and buying something more work related (being a 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost).

So now im back here where i began, i would like some insight on purchasing a 2000-2004 S55 amg I'm in love with the 2003-2004 model the look and interior and add ons are exquisite. What are your thoughts on the car itself i heard alot of issues with ABC problems and them being high maintenance. Now with my W140 i was always fixing something under the hood to make sure she was up to date, would there be any big problems i may encounter?

And of course if anyone knows anybody selling a S55 amg anywhere in the States i will gladly fly down and buy it given that its a good deal

Its good to be back here!!

Welcome to benzworld. You'd get better replies down at the "W220" section of the forums.

W220 S-Class - - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

If I was to buy a S55, I'd no doubt get the 03+ models. Have you checked autotrader? I see them from time to time at relatively 'cheap' prices. Make sure you get one with records so you know it's been taken care of. Just remember, in the end it's a very complicated engine, transmission and car in general. You may not be able to work on as many things as you would be able to on a W140.

Good luck
