6 Months Registration.  210,000 km.  Serviced every 10,000 km at Eurotech (Burleigh, Gold Coast).

This is my wife's car. We have had it for three years.  It is in excellent condition inside and out and has been meticulously maintained. 

The ML430 was the top of the range prior to being superseded by the ML55.  The car has never been fitted with a tow bar, and the benefit of the V8 is really the added life you can expect from the engine since it is not working hard.  Just over 200,000 km is nothing for this car.   Petrol consumption is surprisingly good, particularly out on the highway.  We typically average just under 12L/100km around town. 

Priced at over $95,000 when new, the ML430 is a very safe and comfortable car.  The doors have double layered rubber seals making it virtually soundproof.   And with 10 rubber to body mounts the ride is very smooth.  Very safe car - 6 air bags, traction control and electronic stability.  And excellent handling - four-wheel fully independent suspension, three "open" differentials allowing torque to be routed to a single wheel if necessary, adaptive five-speed electronic transmission, wide footprint, and rigid body construction.

We have spent a lot of money keeping the car mechanically A1.  Not including minor maintenance, we have done the following (with receipts kept unless mentioned):
  • Spark plugs
  • New genuine battery
  • New brake pads
  • New rear break discs and pad sensor
  • New radiator and hoses, etc
  • Re-gassed air con (receipt missing)
  • Harmonic balancer (big job!)
  • Engine mounts and gear box mounts
  • Tie rod ends
  • Ball joints
  • Throttle cable
  • Drivers door central locking actuator
    • Over $6,500 in receipts (not including the $4,000+ spent on wheels, audio/visual and tinting).  Majority of work done at Eurotec (West Burleigh).
We purchased this car from the original owner in Sydney.  It had not been taken off road when we bought it and we haven't taken it off road.

The paintwork is in excellent condition however there are some minor stone-chips on the bonnet.  The interior is in immaculate condition.  The leather seats, dash, etc are as new except for the usual scuff mark on the drivers back rest.  The dark-green colour is beautiful and looks great with the AMG wheels.

The only thing not working is the front-passenger central locking (recently stopped and haven't got around to getting a new actuator). Otherwise everything is excellent working condition.  You can find other examples of this car at a lower price but you could easily spend a lot more on those cars to get them up to the same standard as this one.

Will take $1,200 off if you prefer the original rims/tyres (with 50% tread) over the new AMG mags.

Please call me on 0432 158 151 if you have any questions.
