Hey all, I've been looking at W211 E55's for a while now, and hopefully will be getting one either this year or the next. I've never owned or even driven a merc before..mostly bimmers and one audi. The car i've been really looking for is a mix between lux and performance...I think that I've found it in the E55. I NEED to have a warranty on this car, especially being an AMG, out of pocket expenses would definitely make this a huge money pit. I've been looking at mostly 05-06, to keep it as new as I can, however the factory warranties are all up, so i've been looking towards CPO. Looks like I only get one more year of coverage up to 100k on that, then after its gone. How are the extended warranties with MB? They a total wash or worth it in the long run? Been mostly looking at MBUSA; the financing on CPO is catching my eye a lot more than a private seller. I live up here in Denver, I need the car to have some sort of FI, the alt kills NA cars, which is why I was looking at the 55 vs the 63's. Any thoughts or input I could get from you guys would be awesome, hopefully I'll be a proud owner on this board in the future!
