C55 Estate

Hi All
I'm in the market for a C55 Estate.
Does anyone one know of a 2006 or later car for sale (may consider a late 05 too)?
I know of one at Marlow cars, but it is over priced by some margin.

Also can anyone give an idea on service intervals and costs? I've tried searching, but posts on the C55 seem a bit thin on the ground.
Thanks in advance.

Ouch! Your right very over priced. But must say a rare car these days, and albeit their stock list is always intresting, still a very big load of money, 30K will buy you a good/great car, best of luck with your search, and will be intrested to hear what you end up with.

Hi,
The estate version is rare, though the production figures don,t define between Saloon and estate, you may have to settle with a 2005 car as there were only 451, 2006 cars produced and 1299, 2005 cars.
As far as the engine is concerned do a search for E55 as the running gear is the same (as far as servicing goes anyway) and the chassis/body do a search for W203 C Class as the AMG version will have similar faults, but please bear in mind items like the exhaust, CATs, brake discs & pads will be considerably more expensive.

Just to clarify Bigastons info, the engine is the same as 210 series E55. The 211 E55 is a supercharged unit, and some problems associated with that will not be applicable to the C55.
