    As above has anyone had any experience with them? I'm about to bite the bullet this week (I think!) and put a deposit on a 2014 model. Viewed today, stunning on the outside and interior is like nothing I have ever seen! Given its the usal AMG biturbo V8 presume there is nothing really to look out for when buying?

    I was initially looking at GTR's but found the interior very dull, I would except something twice as nice for 45k.... The drive was amazing but didn't really feel the love for it...

    Any other alternatives to look for before putting a deposit down?

    No experience at all, but I would worry about depreciation on these... how much was it new? And how much is it now?

    I can imagine it will be like the old CL55 and keep depreciating until it’s worth £2K lol

    These actually seem to be doing a bit better in terms of residuals compared to the old CL's. Stunning car OP enjoy and post pics.

    I think this one I’m interested in was £124k new with the options, its up for 56k and it’s nearly 4 years old (feel sorry for the previous owner!!). I can’t even think of anything in that price bracket that’s a good.....

    Like the previous comments, they are stunning car but I would be worried on the depreciation aspect too. Sound phenomenal though! Enjoy!

    Well I did buy it, had it a couple of months now, its stunning, I love the thing, stupidly fast, stupidly comfy, sounds immense, somewhat practical (to a degree!). This one is defo a keeper!! 22" Vossen wheels already on order!

    Indeed I had a E63 before this, was one of the reasons for going back to an amg!

    Few new pics below, fitted some 22" Vossen CVTs, added some lowering links and had the centre boxes removed. I've also added a JL Audio sub and Rockford Fosgate amp/SLi4 to give it a bit more bass inside!!

    That interior is lovely.
