2000 ML55 AMG.....for sale...probably
I needed a pickup, so I sold my wifes car and got a truck. She doesn't want to drive the truck, so she has been driving the ML. I love my wife...but she would prefer a different vehicle. Why I do not know...but regardless, I am thinking about selling my baby. Here's what I got...
2000 ML55 AMG with 97k miles. All the bells and whistles; leather, NAV, BOSE, etc, etc. I added a single OEM third row seat as well. I removed the interior spare tire carrier for more space, but kept it just in case I ever sold.
Recent work includes; auxillary water pump replaced, tranny serviced, A/C serviced, new washer reservoir, replaced front cats with Magnaflow heavy metal hiflo cats.
Service done in the last 10k or so miles; both passenger door lock actuators replaced, new brakes, rotors, tires, LOF (mobil 1 synthetic), differentials serviced (mobil 1). Other recent small repairs/preventative maintenance; MAF cleaned, window switch adjusted.
Runs incredibly smooth. One thing that still needs attention is the sunroof. It doesn't leak, it just slightly whistles when driving over 25mph. I thought about just buying a sunroof visor to deflect the wind. At first I thought it was the Mercedes ski rack crossbars but it does it with or without them.
In about a week the car will have a new hood and grill, paint matched. Thats what happens when my wife runs into the back of my new truck (tail gate was down). No major damage, just the damn expensive hood and grill! I have pics to show the minimal damage if need be.
In my part of the world the kbb is between 12500, down to 8500ish for trade-in. Considering I have put so much into it in the last 12 months, I was thinking about $11500.
What do you guys think? Any takers?
