    Mercedes E63s

    Very sensible. That 55 engine is bullet proof. I’m yet to hear any horror stories about it

    Well mine is Estoril Blue with the xenons so he had obviously clocked me lol. I bet he thought I’m not chancing this and being shown up by an M3, off we go haha.

    Mercedes E63s

    Yep i know that feeling well. For my budget, I could have bought an 08 plate E63 or CLS 63 AMG. However, these 6.2 V8 engines suffer with a 'headbolt issue' and knowing my luck i would buy one with such a problem. Obviously, its a new engine should these fail...

    Mercedes E63s

    Hi Dave, i recently did an 800 miles round trip to Cornwall and the car performed perfectly. I can still hear a rumbling noise above 70 though but I’m having to put it down to the Bridgestone runflats. I had it back in Williams and they said it had been road tested and they couldn’t find any such fault with the wheels. So, to cut a lot my story short I’m having to take their word for it. As for that E63, I’m not sure whether it was the 6.2 lump or the 5.5 bi turbo. Either way it left me for dead lol and made me look a bit silly lol

    There is a lovely one for sale on a Merc forum I’m on. Lovely looking car as well. I think it’s up at £9200

    Mercedes E63s

    Well at a set of traffic lights on a dual carriageway. I pull up behind an 11 plate Mercedes E63s. Now, my F30 330d is know slouch as people know. I pull up behind him, stick mine is Sport mode. The lights go to green, I give mine everything it has and he has absolutely left me for dead.... I wasn’t expecting to keep up really but it just goes to show how a pretty quick car is not even close to that of a performance car. I’m not into racing, I just wanted to see how mine would fair against an AMG.....those cars don’t half go and what a noise.
  7. Dont worry about the interior, it’s a very very comfortable place to be and the driving experience is spot on. As I said before SBC Pump (foot brake), airmatic suspension and electrics are things to check out as expensive to put right. Engine and gearbox are bulletproof
  8. I’d take the CLS55 but for your money you will be struggling unless it’s an absolute dog. How about a W211 E55? £8k will get you one but again may not be the nicest example.

    Update on the 330d F30

    Thanks lads, I’ll certainly put all of this to them. I’m gutted as I really like the car, it’s a stunning looking vehicle but I’m not prepared to take it back unless the alloys are replaced or at least repaired so that the vibration goes. As a family we are going Cornwall the end of July, will be a 900 miles round trip, I’m not looking to put my family’s safety in jeopardy at any cost....

    Update on the 330d F30

    So I dropped my F30 330d into the local main dealers yesterday. As you know, there was a noise from the turbo that didn’t sound normal, I could occasionally smell fumes on a cold start and at motorway speeds there was a rumble/vibration. So I had a voicemail from them today regarding an update. They had to replace the EGR cooling pipe. The vibration is down to a slightly buckled OSF alloy wheel and NSR alloy wheel which is what is causing a vibration, they balanced the wheels and this is what they found. The technician said the loud blowing noise from the turbo was normal yet the technician last week said it wasn’t right and had to be looked at. They finished the voicemail to say the car is ready to be collected. Now Iv had the car 3 weeks tomorrow, covered about 250 miles in total. It’s obvious to me that the car hasn’t been fully road tested before it was put on sale otherwise the vibration would have been obvious. So what do I do and what are my rights? I’m going to tell them that they need to replace the two buckled wheels, from a legal standing do they have to do this?

    F30 330d Question...

    In fairness bud, the last few Mercs I had had been brilliant. I bought an E350 CDi Coupe a year ago from Mercedes in Stockport. Two months in the car wouldn’t start. Mercedes came out to my house, the car was taken away to the nearest dealership, Mercedes provided a similar model car from Enterprise for two weeks whilst the car was having the work done. They dropped my car off and took away the loan car. I am hoping BMW step up to the mark though I know I won’t be getting a courtesy car

    F30 330d Question...

    Unless they sort it lads they can have it back. I also found in the leather wallet in the glove box that it had been damaged repaired at a BMW approved dealer..... Feeling a tad annoyed at the minute

    F30 330d Question...

    Well my hunch was right. I took it into my local bmw dealer last week. One of the technicians had a look at it. He opened the bonnet, told me to give it some gas. His response was ‘I don’t even need to give it a test drive as that high pitched noise isn’t right.’ It’s therefore booked in to get checked over. Iv also noticed on the motorway at 65MPH plus I can hear a rumbling noise. At first I thought it was just the run flats but my mates car, almost identical has no such noise. I also noticed this morning when I started it from cold, I could smell fumes inside the car. Something else I’m going to mention to them. Im a tad pissed off as you would think the car would have had a thorough road test to check any potential issues. Let’s hope they sort it otherwise they can have the car back..

    CLS55 AMG

    Iv had a few Mercs lads, I did have a C55 AMG, same engine as the CLS 55 but without a supercharger. Engine and gearbox are bulletproof in these cars. The SBC pump will need replacing at some point, budget £1000-£1200 thereabouts. The car has air suspension, if any of it fails you’re looking at a £1000 per corner for a new airmatic pump. Discs and Pads are very reasonable. Electrics can fail, check absolutely everything on them. I almost bought one but running one put me off. I will have one at some point I’m sure but my F30 330d is belting so far

    Looking for a weekend convertible?

    What year is it? 2006-2008 models had the balance shaft problem. Warning sign is the EML coming on, it’s a new engine if this fails...later 08-09 models were fine
