A friend on mine has an '07 and is scared for when that happens He's trying to find suspensions that delete that system and they're still $3500+. Jeeeeeeezus.Awesome drive train, bullet proof engine and trans.... electronics and everything (including maint.) else will bleed you dry.
Also has 77K miles...
"AMG Tuned Airmatic Dual Control Air Suspension w/Adaptive Damping System (ADS II)" that's like a 6K job when it goes out. (if all 4 corners) I heard it's 1500 per corner.
Cheaper yes, a lot more than you're expecting this is going to be? Yes.
Can you afford a $50k car? Serious question.
STOP IT!IMO, don't burn a hole in your pocket. You have a good DD now after all that work, use the money to build your race car and just keep driving the free DD.
Thanks!I had one for a long time, it was high mileage (124k) no major issues. Last time I cheked brakes were really reasanable, 120$ per rotor and brake pads like 80$. Air suspension is about 400 a corner, motor mounts 100$ (eats those ). Probably most popular AMG out there and all issues are known, not that bad to fix if you're willing to do it yourself . Overall a great car and a blast to drive, undervalued in my opinion.
