Man!!! That's a nice ride!!

I just have 2 questions:
What type wheels are those? they seem to be a little different from the standard 1997 e420 wheels.

And ....If I am not being too personal, How Much did you pay for such a nice ride. I am crazy about black on black Benzs.

RE: Man!!! That's a nice ride! Hi Vern!! Fellow E420 Guy!

Hey Vern,

these wheels are AMG Monoblock 3-piece 17x8 with BF Goodrich Comp G-Force tires, 245/45/17 rear, 235/45/17 front. These AMG wheels date back to 1992, and AMG does not make 3-piece wheels anymore (The kind with chrome allen bolts holding the outer rim to the wheel centers. Have you thought of doing any performance upgrades to your E420? let me know what you have found so far. The 420 is fast, but it would be nice to take a 540i at the lights!

looks good, but off with the hood star and e420 badge in the back, on with springs and shocks and '01> rear lights.

I'm a newbie MB owner - just purchased a 2001 E320 4Matic Desert Silver with the light tan interior with only 12,619 miles on it. Carfax and MB warranty history were clean and there are absolutely no nicks, dents, dirt on the interior... Car looks like it just rolled out of the factory. Has the Starmark warranty for another 15 months. Paid $32,100 The way I look at it, I could have paid $54,000 for a new one with a few less miles but why?

Thats alot of money for a 210. I paid $20,000 for my car. Perfect car fax, 45,000 miles, 4Matic, every option but heated seats.

But Ive been hearing bad things about the 211's. They have bad electrical problems. Im waiting to buy a new ML, or the 211 E Wagon after they fix this problem.

foreyes:
Let me ask you something.
I also have a 420, needless to say it´s a 97, and my rpm´s seems to be a little low when the gear is in D and A/C on. The tach reads about 400, this is, a little less than 500. With the selector in N and A/C on the rpm´s are about 650.
Is yours the same?
Thanks in advance and ejoy your beatiful car.
Projector headlights look great.

For Rafael:Idle speed check

Hi Rafael,
I checked idle speed for you. Idle speed in Park with A/C on is 650 RPMs, idle speed in Drive with A/C on is slightly above 500, approx. 525 RPMs. Hope this helps!
