Looking for a 2000-2002 E55 in Texas

I am wanting to replace my 97 E420 with a newer E55 (w/ less than 100kmi).
My E420 has 145kmi and is still driving like new, I love these cars.
Let me know if you hear of a good one, well maintained!
I am fearful of buying it from a 2nd or 3rd owner that did not have the ability to maintain it well.

Thanks!

I really want to avoid a car from up north.... W210 are not known to be rust resistent. I will take my time. There are a couple of nice ones on Ebay now.
What I want is simple Garaged, 60 to 80kmi, and babied, limited exposure to sun, no exposure to snow, one owner.... and for a good price. I am not in a hurry, good thing.

A friend of mine in Austin has a 1999 E55 with 46k miles on it for sale. He has a known history and records. Silver/black and well-treated.

Wrong year for you, but if you're interested email me and I'll put you two in touch.

Now that you mention it I remember you and you stating that you have a Greek wife! My wife isn't Greek, lol, for personal reasons, lol.

Anyway, good luck on your search and I'll definately keep an ear open for a CA. located car, always the best on weather. There are a couple for sale in here and also over at MBWorld.org so check it out.

I'm working on a deal on another Benz and I hope it works out. I will post if and when it does.

Take care...JDG
