Now that everyone is in holiday shopping mode and searching diligently for a good deal, I’d thought I’d throw this one out there. This is a 2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG for $12,000. No, it isn’t smashed in the rear and you just can’t see it like some tricks some other eBay auctions try to pull. This is a perfectly functioning 6.2 liter V8 monster that normally trades around the $20,000 mark. Yes, it is $12,000 for a reason, but the pluses for this car might just outweigh the minuses. Let me explain.

So this car is a classic good news/bad news example. Lets start with the good news. This car already had the infamous M156 headbolt issue fixed. That is great news because you don’t need to worry about that $10,000 elephant in the room. You can drive in peace of mind knowing that you won’t be waking up one day and having the dreaded ”check coolant level” warning message then have your stomach drop. The other good news is that this car doesn’t look half bad. I can’t find any real major issues that I can see and everything looks well enough. Now the bad news. According to the paperwork disclosed, this car was in some type of rear end accident. It is kind of vague, but at least they are up front about it. Other things I noticed are the paint is in pretty poor shape with swirling and scratched, the interior has a tiny bit of wear, the steering wheel badge is aftermarket and the Comand system has some random lines running vertically through it. If you can live with all that, then not a huge deal.
So $12,000. Worth it? I’d say so. This is a really good way to get into a M156 car without a ton of money needed and still have fun. The headbolt job already being done is worth it alone to me over say a car in better condition without the accident. You can easily use this as a daily driver if you wish and not have to worry about it cosmetically that is if you can deal with the MPGs that the M156 returns. Otherwise, these cars aren’t too bad to live in terms of reliability and maintenance. Yes, it is still a modern AMG car, but nothing insanely expensive. So if you save enough money doing all your shopping, how about this car under the tree for Xmas?
