My first Mercedes!!!

Hello all,
This is my first post on Benzworld, so I figure I’d talk about the car I just bought!! I decided to buy a 2002 CL55 AMG after wanting one for a year and a half. I researched everything about the car and finally decided to do it. I’m really exited to drive it (currently finishing up paperwork and it’s going to be shipped to me shortly!!)

I had the opportunity to buy a black one (mines grey on grey) but I hesitated and it got away from me but this ones got less miles (102,500). If you devide the miles by the amount of years it’s only been driven about 6500 miles a year.

Insurance is kinda expensive (I’m 18 so that explains it) $272 / mo with state farm. But I was expecting that.

I also put some money aside especially if problems arrive, ABC in mind. I’m really exited to drive it!!

Welcome to the club!

Take it easy until you get used to the power then enjoy smoking tailgaters and 380Zs, Scions, etc. on the freeway! (Up to the posted speed limit of course )

I got it from South Carolina, I’m in Virginia. Unfortunately I bought it sight unseen but it’s from a dealer and they sent me many videos of the car running, all the items working inside the interior, etc. I bought it for $5300.

Have you seen a video of the thing on a ramp? Would be worthwhile asking them to do so before you part with your cash. I would also suggest you get a third party pre-purchase inspection done. Almost EVERYTHING on an AMG can cost three or four times as much as on the corresponding "Vanilla" Mercedes model. Get the suspension, brakes and exhaust (including the catalyst and the oxygen sensors) checked out, as well as for rust. Also get someone to run a fully Mercedes-compatible code checker (not just a run-of-the-mill ODB-II scanner) and verify there are no error codes.

Other than that. welcome to the poorhouse, oh, sorry, I mean club!
