Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consigner

There is something eminently desirable when it comes to powerful estate cars, all that practicality with a punch.

The third generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211) was introduced for sale in 2002 in a production run that ran until 2009. There was a mid-generation refresh where drivetrain options, external and interior design were changed with 29 options available. At the top of the range were the AMG built 5.5L and 6.3L V8's, but the standard range also had some powerful options in both saloon and estate forms like the 3.5L V6.

This example is a facelift E350 W211 featuring the 3.5L V6 and 7G-Tronic automatic transmission. It's a car that's not to be sniffed at, able to push the estate body to 62MPH in ~6.0 seconds. Imported in to the UK from Japan in August 2020, it's a low mileage example that has clearly been cared for, and comes with AMG specification from factory. With a keen reserve, this car presents a great entry point if you're looking for a fast estate.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Graham the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

The build quality is superb and you just sit back and relax…. albeit, if inclined, kick-it and it does really go & go & go!

Graham purchased the car from the importer after it arrived from Japan in 2020. Listed with the top inspection grade possible for a car of this age, he notes "I bought it unseen, not at all disappointed as not a mark on it". With retirement on the horizon Graham is selling this example as he wants to buy something a bit more special, he's going back to an Aston Martin DB7 having owned 2 previously.

He's used this Mercedes-Benz to visit family in North Wales and Bristol, an ideal car for eating up motorway miles, and has put ~3,000 miles on the car in his ownership. With it coming in such good condition, the only things he's attended to are putting a fresh set of tyres across the car and swapping out the entertainment system for one that works in the UK. Graham will be happy to answer any questions in the comments section below.

Exterior

A W211 Station Wagon with subtle AMG flourishes make this example that little bit more special.

Wheels and Tyres

Avantgarde S AMG specification from factory, the car features 18" alloy wheels. They present in very good condition, we didn't observe any curbing to the wheels, they do however show some wear as pictured to the spokes.

When Graham purchased the car, the tyres were only in OK condition, so he chose to replace all tyres with Bridgestones. Lots of tread left and very good condition.

Bodywork

An express estate, with this being a 2007 example and AMG spec, it features a revised front bumper to earlier models. The vast panel work on this car presents in excellent condition. We didn't observe any defects across any of the panels.

View the picture gallery and video to see the detail.

Paint

Finished in the Mercedes-Benz colour of "Iridium Metallic Silver", the paint tells the same story as the bodywork, excellent condition. This car shows signs that it has come from caring ownership in Japan, and Graham has carried the baton over the past year.

The finish is even across all the panels, we didn't observe any defects of note. Please view the photo gallery to see the paintwork from different angles.

Glass and Trim

Both look fresh and crisp on this example. Often you'll see high mileage W211's will cloudy headlamps, on this example they look "crystal clear". The car has some aftermarket wind deflectors installed on the windows as pictured.

Interior

Real leather interior in this Avantgarde S specified W211 make it a gentleman's express.

Seats and Carpets

A smart black leather interior is a welcome contrast to the silver exterior. The leather presents in very good condition across all the seats, no significant wear to report. Graham has treated the leather with conditioner a few weeks back, and mentions he'll do the same before sale too.

Dashboard

Optioned with "Birds-eye Maple Wood" trim, it gives the cabin that extra luxury feel you'd expect from an Avantgarde specified car. The dashboard, centre console and associated trim all looks unmarked and in excellent condition.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Leather wrapped steering wheel and automatic gear selector, both in black, look in very condition in line with the mileage and age of the car.

Mechanics

The mid-generation refresh of the W211 introduced the M272 engine to the lineup, the 3.5L V6 producing ~256BHP is not to be sniffed at.

Engine and Gearbox

Mercedes-Benz quoted a time of ~6.0 seconds for the E350 to get to 62MPH, the V6 power-plant can be somewhat of a revelation when unleashed.

Watch the video to see the car spring in to life and settle down with a smooth tick over. This car had the 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox fitted, Graham reports that it has a smooth change through the gears, and the engine also performs beautifully.

Suspension and Brakes

This car was specified with the AMG pack from new, and so features upgraded front brakes as pictured. The drilled discs helping to ensure the car stops as fast as it sets off.

The Drive

Typical Mercedes-Benz ride quality on this express estate, Graham reports that you simply sit back and enjoy the ride, but equally putting the pedal to metal can liven things up.

Electrics and Other

Graham reports that everything works on the car to his knowledge.

The full multi media system has been replaced with a ‘copy’ unit as the Japan radio frequencies are different. You’d be hard pressed to suss its not a Mercedes-Benz unit as is designed to look same ,has current generation maps, Bluetooth etc. Also, there are connectors from it (x2) for modern day device comms input. The old unit will also be with the car in the sale.

History and Paperwork

Imported from Japan in 2020, this well optioned Avantgarde S AMG estate is an excellent low mileage example, with a realistic reserve.

Presented in excellent condition, in line with the mileage and use of this car, this AMG specified E350 estate is a real catch. It comes with a whole host of service history from its life in Japan, and has a fresh MOT actioned on it, it really is ready to eat up the miles.

The Avantgarde specification of the E-Class gives features like a full real leather interior, bi-xenon lights and a whole host of other options like auto dimming mirrors etc as pictured in the spec sheet. The AMG specification upgraded the wheels, front brakes and some external AMG flourishes to the design, like the AMG tipped exhaust pipes.

Please note, the private registration does not come with the car, the registration number will be returned to LK07 SXU.

We've actioned checks on; Seller ID, V5C, HPi.

Hi, there looks to be a hole in the plastic sill cover on the offside rear (photo 131)? Any other damage in this area?
Thanks.

Further to What Graham has mentioned. The ground at the shoot location wasn’t very level, and unfortunately to avoid the shadows as much as possible the vehicle was located with the front LH wheel on an incline. As a result this made the Rear Right sit lower to keep the vehicle body level.

When moved for the ‘beauty photographs’ the suspension leveled out, and I can confirm that as Graham drove away at the end of the shoot the vehicle was sitting level.

I hope this helps.

Wheel clearance within wheelarch is definitely different between pictures 131 (driver side rear) and 132 (near side rear).
Is there something heavy in the back?
