Up for sale is my 2001 S500 with a Brilliant Silver exterior and Black interior. It has a clear title and right now it has 134,000 miles but it is my daily so it will go up. I have spent thousands of dollars in maintenance and only touched by my mechanic who is a master Mercedes mechanic at Helms Bros. with 13+ years of experience.
Some of this includes:
All 4 struts replaced with Reman. Arnott shocks with lifetime warranty (front 2 done less than 5000 miles ago)
100K service- All new wires, spark plugs, all rotors, brakes, gaskets and whatever else recommended.
Within the last 10k i have replaced all tie rods inner and outer, sway bar, passenger upper and lower control arms and driver side lower control arms as well as the gas pedal assembly and 2 coil packs as well.
Basically whatever the forum said would go bad, has, and luckily for me and my wallet we were able to fix it
This is my baby. Love her to death.
Fully loaded with all selectable options except distronic.
This includes: Heated and cooled front and rear seats, rear reclining seats, wood steering wheel and shifter, parktronics, power trunk and rear power shade and manual rear shade for the doors.
The bad- Car could use a paint job, if i was to keep it then it would have been this summer.
Car needs rack and pinion as well as an alignment. Was deciding if i should align it or replace R&P then align.
Windshield has crack- Will get replaced by insurance if bought from someone on the forum, will not if i have to trade the car in.
I have replaced the headlights to the updated ones from Fishcake on ebay. One ballast died so i replaced it, have ordered a set just to have a matching pair.
Side markers have been changed to black housing with a white 6K T10 reg bulb.
Rear taillights have been changed to the S550 style with 6K reverse lights.
Mirror lights have been changed to Blue instead of yellow.
I have wired a Tape to Aux and ran it through the console for a functional aux input. Cd player works from time to time so disconnected it to prevent the no audio situation.
Basically this car's drivetrain is in excellent order. I have owned it for 5 years and put 50xxx miles including 2 trips to Orlando Florida and back with absolutely no issue. Front end for the most part has been rebuilt all with OEM parts from helms bros., Autohaus, and 2 other local Mercedes dealerships. All work done by my Mercedes Mechanic who has 13+ years of dealing with these W220's. Keep in mind that this is a 13 year old car and will need some work here or there. Cars never left me stranded. Just too much time and money has me put in the mind state of a Japanese car rather than german.
I haven't mentioned a ton of other parts such as flex discs, PSE pump, New fan and all 4 Cats among others. All done after 100K but i just cant tell exactly when, definitely within last 2 years.
Price is $4700 OBO. Id much rather someone else own it than trading it in. Tons of problems have been addressed that are common with these W220's as well as some tasteful Mods that any future W220 owner would consider. For that price ill also include The 20 inch Authentic CL AMG rims with fresh Continental DWS tires (One rim does need replacing). Currently on stock 16 with New rear michelin X-ice3 and older front X-ice2.
Text Preferred and hope to get sell it before next 2nd week of March. The sooner the better. I am negotiable on price. All Offers considered, worst I can say is no.
