1998 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG
I would like to start by thanking everyone in advance for viewing this project and a massive thank you for anyone that contributed!
I will start with some background history about the car; been in the family for 5 years now and parked up for the last 2 years. I was given the car 2 weeks ago with the view of running the car as a daily and having the issues taken care of when funds allowed. Unfortunately the work is quite extensive and will require more funds and being a student I am struggling; and need your help!
