FS: 2005 AMG E55 w/ coilover conversion

This 2005 E55 has been extremely well cared for with many thousands of dollars spent in upgrades and preventative maintenance. The most significant includes the complete elimination of the factory Airmatic suspension with a full performance 30-way adjustable coilover conversion. The ride and handling are both significantly improved as a result. The car is completely transformed from competent to absolutely phenomenal. Wheels and tires were replaced less than a thousand miles ago as well.

Mileage: 84,XXX
Price: $26,900

A list of very recent work performed includes:

BC Racing coilover shocks and springs with 30-way adjustable dampening, custom built for W211 AMG E55

New factory replacement front and rear lower control arms and front lower ball joints

New factory engine mounts and transmission mount

New gunmetal 19" HRE P40 style wheels (VMR V710) 8.5" front & 9.5" rear

New Continental Extreme DW summer performance tires, 245 & 275

New supercharger tensioner pulley and belt, new serpentine belt

New upgraded Bosch replacement intercooler pump

New replacement ABS module

New engine valve cover gaskets

Front & Rear factory brake pads and rotors

All new fluids including, transmission, engine coolant, rear differential, and brake fluid

Replacement factory spark plugs

After the suspension was replaced all related items to it were turned off with a factory Star Diagnostic scan tool, there are no warning lights on or any issues at all as a result. A full factory alignment was performed and the vehicle drives flawlessly. Steering response and feel has been significantly improved as has dampening response. Gone is the floaty disconnected feel with Airmatic. At its softest dampening setting it feels similar to factory comfort mode but with much less body roll. I have it currently set 8 clicks back from full firm and it seems to be the perfect blend of body control without harshness. Overall the car drives phenomenally well with no excuses or issues. Selling due to moving on to another project, but sad to see it go.

Vehicle is in St. Louis, MO
