FS - Possibly parting out my 2005 C55 AMG

It depends on my ability to get enough of the car parted out simultaneously so that I'm not stuck with half a car and half the money I need out of it, but the car is perfect. I just feel like it's going to be worth more in parts than as a whole. If you have a C55, you know what parts are available, so if you need something, ask. Everything is perfect, seats, body panels, doors, seat belts, airbags, electronics, engine and components, exhaust, wheels, brand new tires and brakes, bi xenons, fog lights, mirrors, etc...its all here and all perfect. Let me know what you need and I'll let you know how much. I'll make it a great deal, but I've got to make sure I'm covered before releasing the parts. I'm going to leave the opportunity open for the next 30 days. I own the car outright and have the title in hand, so no funny business. You can agree to purchase something and I'll hold it until the last day. As long as I'm getting the money I need to get, I'll release all of the parts to their respective parties and everyone wins. It's open season, gentlemen...let the bidding begin.FS - Possibly parting out my 2005 C55 AMG-img_1070.jpg

Why would you part out an immaculate car like that?

I'm just considering the bottom line. I'm asking $22000 for a perfect car and I can't seem to get anyone to look at it. Everyone seems to need parts though, and if I can get enough commitments for the various parts available, two things can happen: I can get the money I need, and some of my fellow enthusiasts can get the much needed parts that will make their babies whole again. I LOVE this car, but I'm not going to give it away to one person for less than it's worth when I could help out a bunch of you and get what I need in the process. Kinda simple, really...but that of course depends on how much interest there is in the parts. I'm sure there are quite a few of the lesser C class model owners out there who would love some genuine AMG parts and some AMG owners who would love to have a new one of something that maybe doesn't work or doesn't look good anymore. We'll see...

dude.. it takes time to sell these cars.. dont part it out... its not worth the time any money.. besides i highly doubt anybody in this forum would like to see that beauty in pieces.. why not drive the car to a wall then sell it in parts would probably be easier to part it out..

Yeah this is the most insane thing I have heard in a while. Please don't part it......I know the depreciation on these cars is heartbreaking but parting a car is a full time job if you are going to do it right and get anywhere near the money you need for it. You are going to need top dollar for all of your parts to break even, and most people don't pay anywhere close to top dollar for used parts. You may get a sizeable chunk for the drivetrain assuming you actually find a buyer, but my guess is that there are a whole lot more buyers interested in a spotless complete C55 than the motor. There just aren't a lot of vehicles that you could reasonably transplant that motor into, and there aren't that many sitting around in garages with blown motors with an owner thinking "gee I wish someone would sell one of these online somewhere". Not trying to be harsh, but save yourself the trouble and wait for a good buyer. There will be one.

I am parting my ml55 and unless you have time, space, patience and a bunch of random hex tools you will hate it! My garage looks like a bomb went off in it and while I have sold a lot there is still a lot left. I would HIGHLY recommend selling whole....

Need any w163 parts...See link to photos of parts below and PM me with an offer and it is yours!
