As car enthusiasts, many of us have found ourselves complaining that we can’t have exactly what we want. But sometimes, as the Rolling Stones would say, “you get what you need.” Such is the case with the AMG tuned E-class estates that Mercedes-Benz has offered for about the last decade or so. Your ordinary customer wasn’t going to waltz into the Mercedes showroom and purchase a 469 horsepower five-door monster, but for the family man having issues giving up his sports car, it was the perfect compromise. This 2006 E55 AMG Estate was brought to our attention by our reader Ry and is on offer in Texas at a rather attractive price.

Price: $29,000 OBO

I am offering my 2006 E55 wagon for sale. I purchased this car in Oct. 2011 from RBM Atlanta as a CPO w/52K miles. It has been a great car, but I need something larger now. Please see the description and photos below.

If interested contact me via PM or email jcyuhn at yahoo dot com. Thanks.

The car is completely stock but for tinted windows. It’s in very nice shape. No accidents, no paint work, no stories. It has no door dings and no dents. The hood has the expected number of rock chips, and recently picked up a 1 inch scratch from some Flying Freeway FOD. I haven’t been able to decide whether to paint the hood or leave the car paint free and live with it. Have priced accordingly.

The basics:
– 2006 E55 AMG Wagon (211.276)
– Miles: 74K
– Color: Obsidian Black Metallic (197)
– Interior: Anthracite (black) leather (251)
– Wood: Bird’s eye maple dark
– VIN: WDBUH76J46A844613
– Price: $29K OBO

Options:
– Rear door sunblinds
– Heated/cooled seats
– Drive dynamic seats
– Navigation
– Bi-Xenon headlamps
– CD Changer
– Third row folding seat
– Power rear hatch door

Items addressed in the last 12 months:
– Supercharger idler pulley
– Engine mounts
– Fuel tank sending unit, filter, and seals
– Right/Left front air struts
– Front sway bar and bushings
– Blower motor
– Power steering pump
– Valve cover gaskets
– Rear main seal
– Four Michelin Pilot Sport AS3 tires (stock sizes) ~4k miles ago
– Front brakes were done shortly before it was traded into RBM, rear brakes were done as part of CPO certification

Notes:
– I have a full size spare (on a non-matching wheel) that can be stored in the back if the 3rd row seat is removed.
– The hatch struts will need to be replaced in the next year or so.
– The front plate is mounted with double sided tape. There are no holes in the front bumper.

This car is tempting. Seriously, seriously tempting. At the asking price, I doubt it will last long. The W211 E55 AMG was my favorite of all the bonkers estates that Mercedes has made so far, as the soundtrack that comes with the supercharged V8 is irresistible. I’ve always been a bit confused as to why people call these all-wheel drive, jacked up family mobiles you see all over the place “sport” utility vehicles. This E55 is certainly more worthy of a classification combining “sport” and “utility.”

    There was one of these in my old neighborhood. Well, maybe he just dropped by the fairly uninhabited area to smoke tires. It was so badass. Same color. What a sound.

    And he once looked over at me as I passed in my alpine white W124 wagon and gave a nod. He knew I knew.

    @Brunswick – funny story, made me lol…”he knew, I knew”. Ha!

    I like this wagon a lot for so many reasons, first and foremost — it’s actually pretty discrete, especially compared to the E63 (and some of its over the top aero-flourishes). If I owned this j might actually debadge it (sides & rear).

    The color combo, the mileage, the intelligent current owner and respectable service history, the price is decent…man, all signs point towards “yes” as the saying goes. I would do weekly smokey burnouts all over town, in a wagon! 🙂

    Wow, great looking car. The amount of maintenance required in the last 12 months and at that mileage is pretty startling and likely an indication of what the new owner will have to look forward to.
