    Need to sell my 2007 AMG 6.3 Cabrio. Marrow transplant precludes open cars and UV exposure. Clean carfax, owned by me 3-4 years bought from 1st owner who got from OC Fletcher Jones, bought off lease and moved to Portland OR. Sorry, title should say 29.8k miles

    I hunted for a couple years before I found this one. Designo Graphite/Black, Burlwood, windbreak in box, in bag, unused, Fidelity Platinum warranty until 3/2020. No valve guide issues, no head bolt issues seen in some M156 engines. MB dealer VIR shows oil services every 5-700 mi, I did full service here and leakdowns, etc were fine.
    car had 22,254mi when I got it 3/15, did motor mounts as usual, MSRP was 98.5k Can't find Monroney,but all books there, took CD changer out (supplied) for factory iPod, added full factory Bluetooth phone with factory parts. Works thru Comand/ can bus as does iPod. Also added Smarttop module so you can raise/lower top, windows on the move in traffic, can adjust speed, set at 25mph now. Adjustable through dash screen. Also can put top up or down with 3 presses of key rather than hold it as top cycles, or put top up while parking and it cycles with ignition off.

    I replaced the ancient Continentals with Pilot Supersports, upsized to 245/265 for grip when I got it. Have a Eurocharged 6.3 tune from SLS Black. Car originally was restricted by throttle only opening 75%. Currently has claimed 540hp I forget tq, but I have all stuff to put stock tune back in if you wish. No issues with tune, Eurocharged has great service and backup. Doesn't burn oil, and no valve guide or head bolt issues as seen in some M156 6.3 motors. See Benz world for more details, but I put Fidelity warranty on it so I didn't need to worry about it, transferable and valid to 3/2020. Had oil leak that pan reseal fixed. Mains looked great with pan off.

    Exterior is near perfect, one nick on hood from rock that also took out windshield. Replaced with factory windshield, no leaks. Car had Xpel on it since new, partial hood, full front end and headlights. Car has factory Zenons optional. I put white cornering lenses on it as well, orange included.

    Options on build sheet, but I'm winging this, will try to include when I post videos and pics. Keyless entry and Go, Bi-Xenon HL w/washers, Comand with Nav (2014 map), Sat radio, power open/close trunk, heated seats (only option it doesn't have is cooled seats). Memory seats with width adjustment, full black leather, Burled walnut wood, Parktronic, rear side airbags, HK stereo with subs under rear seat. 243 cabrios built '07/'08, 3 in Designo graphite.

    I've put less than 200mi on it in last 15 mos. Spent 8.5 mos in hospital for transplant last year. Really enjoy this car, but it's got to go.

    $28,800

    Thanks

    Here’s Carfax. Driven about 1k in a year, daughter loves it so probably put couple hundred on it.
    Few comps on market, this is lowest mile and highest optioned. I’ve got still photos but videos seem to cover it well.
    Really needs to go, too much car to give to 17yo daughter.

    I’ll drop price to $28300.

    PM me here and include EM and cell please? I’m at doc or in chemo often but I try to respond ASAP.
    Thx
    Lee

    Price drop 27800.
    Up on cars.com and Craigslist for first ask.
    All comps on market nowhere near the quality or options of this car.
    Needs an FC home.
