Review: Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe (2009 – 2017)


Classy and upmarket coupe. Superb C350 CDI engine. Decent headroom in the back. Good-sized boot. Supportive and comfortable seats.

Four-cylinder E250 CDI model is noisy and lacks refinement. Old fashioned touches like foot-operated parking brake.

I want to buy aftermarket AMG alloys - what's the most cost-effective way to source them?

I'd like to smarten up my low mileage 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, rather than trade it in for a newer model. Where's the best place to buy aftermarket AMG alloys, or equivalent, to give my much loved car a new lease of life? Same with the front grille. Mercedes-Benz will sell them to me of course, but the prices are prohibitive.
To get genuine Mercedes-Benz parts, you'll need to either go through a dealer or you could find a local Mercedes-Benz specialist, who may have access to used exterior parts. Alternatively, websites where you can submit a request for specific parts from breakers, who will then contact you with prices for your chosen part. You can then barter prices down without too much trouble.
