Service: (During my ownership the car was in care of Zach @ Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner, VA
12/02/2011 – Virginia State Inspection – Passed – Sticked good till 12/12
11/29/2010 – 28 point inspection @ M-B of Tysons Corner (Clean bill of health after all the bulbs were changed for good measure; only one was out, but the bulbs come in pairs and my M-B tech loves me.)
05/06/2011 – 61,832 miles - Complete Street+ Alignment when I mounted the SL65 wheels on @ M-B Tysons
Bought the car with 58,000 miles in Nov ’10.
Oil changed week of purchase & March 22nd, 2011 @ 61k miles.
Always with Mobil 1 0W-40 as Mercedes and AMG advise.
I am the 3rd owner of this car, it has always been locally (Northern Virginia) owned and serviced.
This car has been a blast to own. This is my second Mercedes-Benz C-AMG. My first was a 1999 C43 AMG that I owned for just over a year before selling it to get this C55.
I am in no rush to sell, it is currently sitting in a climate controlled garage next to my BMW M3.
Reason for selling: I’d like to move up in the AMG game either to the sensible W204 C63 AMG w/ 030 Package, or a ridiculous W215 CL65 AMG.
Tested faster than: 350Z / 370Z / E36 M3 / E46 M3 / 997 Porsche Carrera S 3.8L / Boxster S 3.2 / Cayman 2.8 / Challenger STR8 < Professional driver on a closed course! :-D >
Dyno Results: 311 wheel.hp & 316 wheel.trq after custom tune by Jerry@Eurocharged on a DynoJet @ Moore Automotive and Performance – 9776 Fairfax Blvd, Fairfax, VA for the EuroCharged Summer 2011 Dyno Day.
Warranty: Inactive but Available through 3rd party, I have the paperwork if you want to sign up for it. I would have gotten one but it’s a N/A 55 motor with 67k miles, this thing is bulletproof and won’t even hiccup for another 100k miles.
Issues with car: 67,xxx miles weren’t friendly to the windshield + fog light covers + drivers side lower valence/air dam corner paint. Everything else is on point.
