Selling my 00 E55

Hey guys I'm looking for a good home for my E55, I drive my 83 300D more and more and this car just sits. Drop me a line if you're interested. I'm in Houston Texas and this has been a Texas car its whole life. Serviced by first owner at Mercedes-Benz Sugarland, and at Star Motors by me and my indy that works on my 300D did the last service. All records available. I would like to get $12,000 for it.

I'm the Second owner, clean carfax
93,xxx miles
Dunlop Potenza tires are almost new
Recent Major service
Brilliant Silver/ Black leather
New OEM Floor-mats
Rear sunshade
Xenon Lights
Heated Seats
Bose stereo
Multicontour / Electric seats
Sunroof
Keyless entry ( 3 remotes ) One new style chrome keyfob and 2 original smart keys (one new in plastic).
All books / records

The last services included a new O2 sensor, new coilpack, new oil lever sender pump, new cabin filters, new air filters, everything checked out. The car has had a new torque converter before I got it as well as valve cover gaskets. The pixels in the dash are perfect and was replaced by the p/o. Also on the last service I got a new OEM front passenger rim due to a crack ($975). The headlights have also been refinished and I had them install brand new foglights.

Call for more info, this car has been overly maintained and is in mint condition. Call me or email with questions 832 552 6082

You have a very nice example OF A WELL KEPT w210 e55.

The W210 E55 is quite rugged, almost "bomb proof" - and some of the previous service work (like valve cover gaskets) usually point to a MB dealer "over diagnosing" - and these non-issue may tend to make a unaware buyer a bit skittish that the W210 E55 requires high maintenance - which it doesn't.

For a enthusiast - their question will be details regarding tranny service and replacement of the tranny adapter plug.

$12K is retail - and your car is a candidate that can deserve - but although pre-owned prices are up, as a 2000 this will be a cash buyer, and certainly enthusiasts like on this forum almost always look for a reasonable-bargain price.

Atuto Trader check national competitive posts before drafting your ad to seek a national market - and you might consider having a CarFax on hand to email to a interested buyer.

Just trying to be helpful - it seems to be a righteous well-kept E55 and deserves a good /loving new home !

I priced it under what people were looking to get for theirs, not only in my local market of Houston but also on ebay and autotrader. I posted the car here because I'm not interested in selling the car to a "unaware buyer".

repainted bumper, mismatched headlights, replaced damaged rim, replaced damaged fog lights? That sounds like some extensive front end collision damage.

Can you share the VIN?
