Don't know what you guys are talking about! Must be a different ML market where you live. I looked up the pre-owned vehicles on the MBUSA web-site here in California. A 2000 ML55 with 48,094 miles on it goes for $45,285. A 2002 ML500 with 41,268 miles on it goes for $34,565 with 41,268 miles on it. So for a warranty you get what's left on the original factory and one year starmark and then buy an extended warranty? I drove a 2001 ML55 with 42,321 miles on it going for $48,175! I bought a 2005 ML500SE for $48,500 with 000028 miles on it and a full factory warranty! The difference in performance doesn't mean that much to me, and I don't like fender flairs! Just my view!

In my own point of view, ML500 is more than enough for daily drive. I don't think you will use your ML55 for freeway race with Mitsubishi Evolution, right ?>?>

AMG, i just got a 00 ML55 to play with. Arriving here next week.

Check out of state or www.autotrader.com or ebay

Much cheaper. Easy $20K range for an AMG.

Please complete the following ...



remember price is an issue...


2000 ML55 AMG VS 2002 ML500

Both these are closely priced however the AMG models seems to be about 1-2K lower.

I would chose the ..... because.....
Mbeclass, I think we've been through this before. Obviously, your heart is in the ML55. Go get it. However, I'll say this again. If you want pure performance, there are very few that will match the ML55's potential. On the other hand, if you want excellent perfoemance with added utility, including 4-year factory warranty (which is a pre-requisite for the ML), the 05 ML500 is a clear winner. You have a choice to make, but you have already made the choice and just want confirmation. Get the 55 and then come back and tell us all about that never disappearing grin on your face after your first drive!!!!

Sorry about the offensive picture and I already did it. I used to post it up on Audi Forum but since, I jumped for MB and I should behave myself like a adult as a father of two kids.

Get a 2002 or 2003 ML 500 Sport, newer with more upgrades and looks and performs almost as well, plus you'll save money

l have to agree...the 02 ML 500 model would be a better pick....l recently purchased a 02 ML 55, so l got the best of both worlds, the AMG, and the 02 model, with nicer upgrades, and better build quality...l would definitely go for the 02 ML 500..The 2000 ML 55 was the first year for the M-Class AMG, so l would be leary...[:0]
