If yesterday’s 2008 E350 wasn’t quite doing it for you, then perhaps stepping back four years will get you on board with the long roof Benz program. This 2004 E500 4Matic Touring looks crisp as can be in Capri Blue and the grey leather interior with dark wood accents really ties the whole package together. I think this is one of the best color combinations you can get on these or just about any car really. The polished silver wheels and chrome grille isn’t bothersome as usual when paired with this paint , a testament to just how nice a shade of blue it is. Given that the car has had 4 owners, all whom have lived in climates known to be less than friendly to cars so I’d look very closely for pitting and chips in the paint. It appears to be in the claimed “Like New” condition but until you see it in person, you never know.
What is clear is that the original buyer wanted to maximize the sporting aspirations of this 5.0L V8 powered wagon. AMG wheels and a factory installed AMG bumper do give this example a tastefully aggressive look. The aforementioned lump has just enough juice to backup the attitude, 302hp from a 5.0L engine isn’t the best hp per litre ratio, especially in a 4,320 lb car. However, with 339lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds, I don’t think you or your passengers would say the car is slow, especially if the folks in the rear facing third row seat.

Aside from the E500 not being the most efficient wagon for stoplight drag racers, are there other drawbacks? Of course there are, it’s a post 1995 Mercedes. The ’04 models W211s are get a particularly bad rap for having a boatload of electrical problems and the adaptive ride control system had issues as well. Going through the CarFax you’ll see that a number of things were replaced under the stewardship of the 2nd owner, mostly suspension bits so that’s somewhat comforting. Additionally the car was regularly taken in for checkups by all 4 owners and as bad as this sounds, at 104,276 more things should have failed by now. The fact that they haven’t, well maybe this is one of the few ’04 W211s that won’t have a nightmare SBC unit failure or maybe it’s just lurking in there, waiting to attack now that the car is out of the extended warranty period. For $10,950 could be worth it for the automatically adjusting sport seats, I’ve heard they’re delightful when cornering.
That’s the front bumper from an ’09 E350 Sport- post-facelift. I think you have to change the grille as well to do this conversion. Makes me think that the car was in a front-end collision right away. Also has 18″ AMG wheels from a C-Class.
