So, I knew I wanted to get rid of my current 280 and get something a bit bigger, and I was hankering after a AM DB9 Volante, but then I saw the fuel figures
. plus for the year I wanted, I just didn't have the cash.
Then I thought about an M3 convertible, but with thier 3 part folding roof mechanism, once it's in the boot your left with enough room for a postage stamp.
I just went out and bought myself a 10 month old 55 AMG
in Iridium silver metallic (see obligatory pictures)
Just got back from paying the deposit, and thought I'd let you all know..
So the options it comes with are:
Advanced Parking Guidance
Magic Sky Control
Luxury automatic climate control
18" AMG 10-spoke alloy wheels
Harman Kardon® Logic 7® Surround-sound system.
Heated windscreen washer system
Roll-over bars with brushed aluminium inserts
I pick it up in about a week....
I'll also be listing a few items in the 'for sale section' that will be coming off my current 280, like the OEM 55 AMG front vents with claws on them, whatever the proper name for them is..
The cup holder insert where the cubby hole is, silver trim (not chrome)
and a shorty antenna, complete with internal wound aerial (as per the guide)
