      2012 E63 Designo E63 AMG wagon/86 z31 300zx/19 Tacoma/BMW F31 touring
      08-27-2020 10:12 PM #1
      Got the replacement from selling my 1984 R30 Nissan Skyline. I found the car, convinced the owner to sell and bought it all within 24 hours.

      I was daily searching for a white 12-13 E63 Wagon with performance package. There was one listed with 48k miles but the guy was asking $54k which was really high. I finally emailed him and offered him 47k. He said 50 and I said 49k. He said he would sleep on it. Next day, he calls me and says he doesn't want to sell. I was bummed. I had posted on IG that I would pay $350 for anyone who found me a car I bought. I got a DM from a guy who has a 1 of 1 and said he was also looking for a white one and had put together a database of all the known ones. Highlighted the ones he thought I could get. I reached out and all were either sold or not for sale so then I move on to the non highlighted. Google searching the 2nd vin on the list brings up a Lynchburg VA name and phone number only which is only 2 hours from me. Call the guy and say " Hey, you don't know me and this is kind of weird but do you have a white E63 AMG wagon"? Yes, he replies. "Would you consider selling it"? He says yes again but says I don't want this car. I ask why and he says because it has 180k (I am thinking miles) but he says sticker price. I asked him how on earth is that possible and he tells me how he owned a MB dealership and spec'd the car out at the AMG basement in Stuttgart where all the best one off cars are done. Goes down the list and then tells me the interior color. I ask how much and he says he thinks he will list on BAT. I go on to tell him about my past cars and he recognized all of them and says this AMG is the car for me. We agree on a price and I bought it. It's never even been titled before and came with the certificate of origin so I am technically the first owner. Apparently the car is well known in Germany and was in magazines from when it was being built at AMG.

      The white wheels have to go. Yes, I am going to mod it but anything I will do will be reversible. I love the fact that it's not metallic white, has yellow calipers and the interior color. All of my favorite things. It's like it was built for me.

      I will take better photos tomorrow when I clean it. I am tired now.

















      Everything I own is for sale for the right price. If you really want any of the cars I post about, shoot me a PM.

      AMG basement?

      Untitled '12 or '13 car?

      Brown interior - is that butterscotch, baseball glove, or cat ****?

      White wheels?

      Clock the same size as the tach?

      I am so full of questions. Looking forward to learning more....

      I didn't realize how unique this car is... It's on an entirely different level.

      You couldn't have found a better example.

      Thanks, everyone! Don't worry, I would never get rid of the wheels. They just need to be removed from the car.
