      So my sister calls me up tells me her father in laws benz doesn't run and wondering how much is it worth 2002 C32 AMG with 192k, she told me it needs fuel pumps or something like that. The junkyard was giving them 200 dollars so i said 300 and i'll pick it up. Picked it up take it home with clean title. This thing was rough, just a quick look around needs rear tires, interior was disgusting but for 300 bucks i just couldn't pass it up.

      Heres the pictures i got sent after i found out it was a AMG thats when i said i'll take it





      So i get it home and had to clean it i dont understand how someone can kill a car like this, people shouldn't even own a car like this..








      Then i cleaned it up forgot to take interior pics but its damn clean now i am impressed





      When i got it both the fuel pump lids and sending unit lid where off for about 8 months, This is when i was starting to think i made a mistake as the pumps are 900 dollars . First i had to change the battery as it was dead then i decided to put it back together and to test the power at the pump to see what the issue is. So i get it to crank and its reading battery voltage keep cranking and it starts So i got excited haha


      All said and done i decided to register and plate the car i drive it to work and i am pumped that it even made it, But that morning i filled up with gas. When i get to work i smell gas and then notice it leaking bad. Take the seats out again and there is a hole in the fuel pump lid now it makes sense why it needs a pump assembly. But im not spending that kind of money so i epoxy seal the hole and its been good

      First thing i did was oil change as the oil sticker said 172k and it has 192k


      I do my trusty Rotella T6


      Heres the rear tires that where on it 215/45/17 should be 245/40/17, fronts are new but no name junk will replace when they wear out


      new ones


      Also first time driving i press the brakes and had horrible vibration so i machined the rotors and changed the brake fluid all better now


      Cleaned the air filters and the throttle body you can see it was well kept up


      I've been driving it daily 50 miles a day for 2 weeks now and love it, its damn fast im surprised. It still needs some stuff like front control arms making a clunk but whatever for the price i have in this car i love it. Gets 22-23mpg if you're easy on it



      I'll update when i do other stuff to it..Is there anything i should watch out for or should i sell it, not even sure if anyone wants to buy a high mileage AMG.

      Good pictures, very cool cars when sorted.
      You stole that thing. I thought I got a deal on my S6 but this is otherworldly.

      I love that era of German cars!

      I wish these cars came with a LSD in the rear then it would be a sideways machine. I'll get some better pics of it now, took the tint off as it was in horrible shape.

      The guy who treated this car so poorly should be jailed.

      Beautiful car and you essentially stole the thing.

      Excellent work! That is a killer deal!

      Also, those gauges are ATS level.

      I'll always remember that gen C-Class as the first car to make me physically repulsed by the gauges.

      Not bad for PS4 money though.

      Didn't we just have a $300 Subaru thread - and now a $300 AMG thread? I'm looking forward to the Ferrari edition....

      Well, check that. It's actually a $296.47 AMG:
