3rd daughter coming in 2 months and a move from AZ to Atlanta are forcing the sale of C43. 1 year ago I had the engine and transmission replaced with a transmission & engine out of a 1999 e55 AMG, the mileage was almost identical, so engine and transmission are with in 1.5k miles. This has given a big increase in HP and given it a much better transmission. This has been my daily driver for 3 years. I am the third owner, and the first to make the car a daily driver, although my office is only 3 miles from home keeping the miles low. This car provides a great blend of performance, comfort and class without being flashy. I am sad to see it go, it runs like a top!
In the spirit of full disclosure here are all the items on the car that I know need a little attention:
The seats in the front were not treated by previous owner and the leather has cracked, the rear seats are still in good condition, once the garage door was shut when the car was not all the way in putting a scratch in the rear bumper (see photo), the front bumper is very low to the ground and the lower grid broke when pulled to close to a parking curb (also see photo), the relay for the wipers occasionally gets stuck and they stay on, requiring me to turn off the car and then they stay off. Finally the electric seats have a short in the control box and work intermittently, (mostly annoying to my wife but keeps her from driving it
These are all easy fixes but with a baby and a move I have not been able to take care of them.
The car does have an i-pod and aux. jack for i pods and phones, the controls on the factory in dash unit will control most i pods and i phones, it is an aftermarket plug in that takes the place of the cd changer, which is still in the trunk if you wanted to connect it.
I also have a second set of rims and almost brand new tires for the rear that are a little larger, off the e55 that make the car look really mean but they rub just a little when the car goes over a large bump. This could be cured with a little creativity and I will include them in the sale of you want them. The car has never been in an accident, the previous owner bought it from his boss, who was the original owner. It lived in California originally and then moved to AZ. It has never seen any rust. The car has been treated well, and is straight.
I also purchased an AMG supercharger when I bought the motor that I was planning on installing but the car was so fast with the new motor and lighter weight body that I never got around to installing it. I will sell it for $400 if a buyer is ambitious to make a car with big HP!
