I know it's no BMW, but it is a sick car. Let me know what you guys think.
It's a 1999 Mercedes Benz E430 w/ AMG package.

be prepare to replace a lot of light bulbs

why is that?

the older model E-Class 96-2000 has a grounding issue in the electrical, light bulbs blow like crazy, also check your brake light housing, because of the bad ground it tends to overheat & melt the tail lamp housing, the front daytime light(the small inner ones) also likes to burn out a lot, also the front side markers contacts corrode because it isn't water tight

if any problems occur feel free to PM me I can help, I'm a tech at MB

I work in Etobicoke Queensway MB Express, so it's nowhere close to you

Bobby except for the looks, most of the stuff is almost the same, they both have their problems, but I would rather save a little more & pick up a 01&up CLK430

I think the fact that it is playing "fast and the furious" and it not matching the colours of the interior has alot to do with it

That car is almost 8 years old now. Thats why they didn't have factory units :)

Didn't they get it on the face lifted W210's though? and this is a pre-face lifted one?

I've seen only a few in north america with the command, most of them where installed after, they had to order new wood trim & the command unit itself which cost $$$

the 2000+ models gave the buyer the option of including navigation, however, i think it was a very expensive option and most people did not opt to get it. I think the screen in my car is perfect but hey everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Anyways thanks for the comments guys.
