    If I could take what I paid for my car, plus what I've put into it since buying it, plus a little extra, I would be after this car so fast it would be...well...as fast as a 6.0L M119 can drive.

    I do understand why some might not want this car. Many collectors only want a "real" AMG. Others, who might just want a fast car, can go faster for cheaper.

    I'm not among those people. As far as cars go, I love the W124 above all others. And a faster W124 than the "fastest" (i.e. 036) W124? Sign me up!

    This is a car to enjoy driving fast, overtake fast, hit the corners fast and floor it, and feel the torque in high speeds.
    Wheels and shift knobs are always different tastes on different people.

    As long as you know that you are flooring an E60 M119 engine maintained with the best fully synthetic oil and “breaking” the engine properly, this all that matters.

    This is not a collectors car, the kickdown switch must be activated very often to feel the adrenaline

    Exactly. This isn't a collector's item, nor is it an investment. It's an awesome car, in a rare color, in fantastic condition, to be driven and enjoyed.

    Maybe portiadog will see the light and keep it!

    I disagree gentlemen, Isn't a 6L 500E in the US more rare than a Porsche 959 ?

    Yes its not a documented 1 of 126 factory E60 AMG, but then these are at least +150,000USD in Europe.

    Unfortunately I have no garage space for more W124s

    I'm definitely not in a rush and I'm definitely not going to "puke it". Maybe it will just end up sticking around in that case.

    Agreed, for sure. I spent over 3+ years (now over 4 I guess) looking at and digging into various E60's and any half way decent 957 codes all were well north of $100K, and most had little/no history. Also most/all of the aftermarket E60's for sale, that had lower mileage (under 100K miles say) and little history are also well over $100K. There were some other rare ones that were built/converted as new E60's (without 957 code) with full documentation from Mercedes that were also well over $100K.
    (More on this whole topic later when I get a chance)

    The engine in this car is unobtainable. It was put in this car as a *brand new* E60 engine (I am not sure how many miles on the engine now). I don't think you can obtain a new E60 engine from anyone right now, unless someone hoarded a few when they were available, and is planning to sell at some point. Regarding the earlier comment on the wheels, if these were the wheels that were made by the guy in Germany who was offering them to members on this board at one point, and they were good enough for Jonathan, I would be happy with them. I definitely would have considered buying wheels from the guy who made them and offered them here.
    Since this is basically a Jonathan build I would have a lot of confidence in this car.

    I think sometimes it just comes down to presentation - for those who are not into the black wheels and blacked out grill and are worried about things like the shift knob - all of which are really easy changes to make, maybe that does not make this car as attractive to them? If that were me I would simply think about this car with 18" Monoblocks (or respray of centers of existing wheel - even better), chrome avant garde 6 ribbed grille, swap the shift knob if you don't like it, and if you don't like the steering wheel buy a stock one, a sportline one or a C43/E55 one. All of this is a days worth of work max.

    Assuming the economy doesn't crater, I don't see cars like this become less valuable.

    Not sure about the wheels, but maybe after two months of NO sale it is time for the owner to get back to the original looking steering wheel and gear knob.

    Yes, easy changes to make for the buyer but it is the first impression that is the most important ))

    So it makes sense for the owner to spend some time and some cash creating a new sets of
    1. professional beautiful photos
    2. photos with some important details, for example underneath

    With that kind of photos (and original interior parts) it will be much easier to get a good sale on Bring a trailer.

    just because something is “rare” does not mean automatically “valuable”
