1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500

There are probably cars you really like and want to own, but only with certain options or packages. In my world, the Mercedes-Benz R129 falls into the category. For me to spend money and commit to one, I need the SL1 and SL2 packages. What do they include? The SL1 comes with the ”AMG designed” bumpers and sideskirts with 18 inch Monoblock 1 wheels. The SL2 includes xenon headlights, a 6-disc changed (who cares?) and heated seats. For me, that is the pinnacle of the R129Well, I’d love a pano hardtop too, but you can’t have it all. But every R129 that I come across without these packages seems disappointing to me because I know that there are other ones out there that are better in my eyes. Today’s 1999 SL500 for sale in Pennsylvania has these packages and in a rare color, but it has one catch.

If you have a keen eye, you might notice something about this car is ”off.” Well, if you guessed the wheels, you are correct. This R129 has the 17 inch Albali wheels instead of the 18 inch Monoblock 1 wheels that come with the SL1 sport package. I have no idea where those original wheels went, but it is really unfortunate because this car also has the SL2 package. To top it all off, this SL500 is painted in Amber Red which is a really rare color for a R129.…

2000 Mercedes-Benz SL500

Last week I checked out a wild E55 AMG with a blue interior to match the exterior. Today we have another Mercedes with a little wild flavor, although this one needs a peek inside to see what is going on. This 2000 SL500 for sale outside of Chicago looks great on the surface. It spent most of its time in California, has a hair over 58,000 miles and nice options like Xenons with 18 inch Monoblock wheels. But unfortunately, this R129 has one little flaw that might keep the majority of the buyers away.

**DESIGNO EDITION** Very rare 2000 SL500 Convertible from CALIFORNIA with only 58k miles on it since new! 100% CARFAX CERTIFIED, Looks and drives awesome! Has power top, heated seats, designo interior with black/red combination leather sports seats, 17 inch AMG wheels, Xenon lights, BOSE Premium audio, and much more! Very rare find! California car with only 58k miles!

Clearly, this SL is all about the interior. The Designo option of red and black is one that I very rarely see on the R129 because the majority of SL buyers usually don’t go for color combinations like this. On top of the two-tone seats, this SL500 also has the W40 and W42 carbon fiber trim options. This is also very rare because almost every R129 has the standard wood trim and not carbon fiber. While cool, there is one major problem. Take a close look at the center console to the right of the shifter and you’ll see a giant crack that goes through almost the entire length of the piece. Not a big deal, right? Just buy another one to replace it, right?…

1998 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

I don’t need to tell you know why I am featuring this Mercedes today. What you are looking at is a 1998 E55 AMG for sale in Schwenningen, Germany dressed in the wonderful Linarit Blau Metallic otherwise know as Bahama Blue in North America. (Because there is nothing Americans and Canadians love more than the Bahamas.) A special order color borrowed from the SLK, this early W210 AMG just isn’t blue on the outside, it also went a little crazy on the inside as well.

Was replaced by a Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG W212 … to the 60th birthday …

My understanding with how the W210 AMG was built is that Mercedes would ship the half built W210 shell from Sindelfingen to an hour north in Affalterbach to the AMG factory. AMG would take the shell and some of the interior then hand assemble the rest of the car before sending it off to wherever in the world it was going.…

2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG

About a year ago I checked out the Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG and explained that the this car is one of those ”best of the worst” scenarios. In my opinion, the W203 was a pretty terrible product overall for someone like Mercedes to produce and owning one when you have so many other options just doesn’t add up for me. But like anything, when the price gets cheap enough, when does pulling the trigger on one actually make sense? In reality, buying an older, used German car never really makes all that much sense in the big picture, but we all justify our purchases one way or another. But I’ve found 2005 for sale in Florida which is actually cheap enough that it is probably going to make a lot of people consider picking this one up.

Right Hooker Week: 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG

In my first Mercedes-Benz from across the pond this week, I figured I’d start with a bang and a color to make you jump too. This a 1998 C43 AMG in fiery Imperial Red with the black and white two-tone interior. Just a quick refresher, this baby Benz comes with the 4.3 liter M113 V8 from AMG with your standard bits of accessories from Affalterbach with monoblocks, some different bumpers and the interior sprinkled with some special touches. This all is the same as we usually see in North America, but these euro W202 AMGs did have one different feature that makes a big difference in my eyes.

If you are wondering why this car looks so good and a little different from the C43s you usually see, it’s because the euro cars are lowered slightly with different springs from AMG. The North American cars, in my eyes, sit way too high and the wheel gap is unusually high. With the euro-spec cars, the wheel gap is barely there and look absolutely perfect.

As for this car for sale in Buckinghamshire, it looks like a really prime example. I don’t see any evidence of rust at all despite being in the rainy and snowy UK and the paint shines really well.…

1998 Mercedes-Benz E430

I’m probably in the minority here, but there is something satisfying about seeing a really nice car for sale at a really reasonable price. I can’t tell you how many times I run across cars that for whatever reason are priced entirely too high for the condition they are in (I’m looking at you R107 owners). This is far too common with the German marquees because naturally their owners have an affection towards their vehicles because they sought out these specific brands in the first place to purchase. So when it comes time sell, they usually see more value than it is actually worth in reality, thus pricing the car too high. Or maybe they can’t stomach the massive depreciation and are trying to recoup some of their loses. Either way, it’s usually a struggle to find of king of common ground between buyers and sellers and everyone wastes time. But today, we have none of that. This 1998 Mercedes-Benz E430 for sale in Brooklyn is not only in outstanding condition, but I think it’s actually way under priced.

2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG

I have always felt like the W208 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG was missing something. In fact, I know what it was missing: a few things. The W208 CLK-Class was based on the W202 C-Class but styled after the W210 E-Class. But if you didn’t know this you looked at a CLK and thought it was just basically an E-Class coupe. So when Mercedes decided to make a CLK55 AMG it was pretty much going to be an E55 AMG coupe, right? Not so fast.

In my opinion, the CLK55 AMG is about 8/10ths of a E55 AMG. I may be a little biased since I own a W210 E55, but the equipment and stats don’t lie. First on the outside, the E55 got 18 inch Monoblocks while the CLK55 had to settle for 17 inch. Also a section of the taillights are smoked on the E55 but clear on CLK55. Inside, the big difference is that the E55 had different seats that were only found on the E55 and no other W210 or W208.…

Fail Friday: 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK430 Cabriolet

Welcome back to ‘Fail Friday’! Today’s vehicle, well, you can probably tell how we got here. Wraps have become all the rage over the last few years and of course with the good, comes the bad. This is the very bad. It’s one thing to pick out a wrap that has the power to blind an entire row of traffic, but it’s another thing to apply it so poorly that you gave up and grabbed the spray paint. This CLK430 Cabriolet for sale in Florida (what a surprise!) was never anything special to begin with but that doesn’t mean you have to literally try your hardest to ruin it. Almost everything on the exterior of this car has been touched to make worse in one way or another. And don’t worry, the inside is as equally as bad!

2006 Mercedes-Benz S430

If you wondering why I am featuring a run-of-the-mill W220 S430 look no further than the words “Almandine Black Metallic”. That’s the name, in my opinion, one of the most wonderful colors Mercedes-Benz has ever produced for its cars. It direct light it looks plum purple only for it to be mistaken for black in the shade and at night. It’s conservative enough to be taken seriously in any setting but still gives off a great shimmer that separates itself from the usual sea of black cars. So when this 2006 S430 4Matic popped up for sale in California, I had to take a closer look at it while trying to restrain myself from getting shipping quotes to bring this thing home to me.

Outside of the paint, this is your fairly standard W220. It’s a nice, clean California car with albeit fairly high miles at almost 187,000, but it looks like it has about half of that. Being this is the last year of the W220 and probably the best year of these cars to purchase as most of the problems that plagued these cars had theoretically been worked through, but at the end of the day it’s still a W220. You’ll occasionally run into Airmatic faults but generally I trust these cars at their core. It’s still just a basic M113 V8 paired to the 722.6 gearbox that has been tested a million times over in every Mercedes from this era. These cars do a pretty good job at being what S-Class are supposed to be: a relaxing, enjoyable place to be.…

2001 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

I’ve expressed my love for the W210 E55 AMG before. I think they are one of the best value Mercedes you can buy. It’s still relatively fast even by 2017 terms, it’s not too ugly and most importantly it won’t bankrupt you in an afternoon. I can’t think of a reason I’d ever want to sell mine as the values have been staying pretty stable and given it’s rarity, it might even creep up in value a little — at least I hope. So when I came across this low-mile 2001 for sale in Virginia, I had to take a closer look.
