RE: BUYING OFF E-BAY?

It’s a 300 SD, not the other way around – that’s a first gen car, so it’s not an 87, and the 87 300 SD had a six cylinder engine.

What do I win?

RE: BUYING OFF E-BAY?

I love Ebay - but like any deal - buyer beware, and be SMART. I've bought 2 cars (great deals btw) on EBay, as well as lots of other stuff. For smaller items, the Ebay Stores are very secure.

But personally, I wont buy an EBay "big ticket" item (like a car) without actually seeing the vehicle and handing the check to the seller at that point.

RE: BUYING OFF E-BAY?

Say, you guys are good. How do you tell the first gen car from the later models?

Did you send the seller a message - and give him a dope slap?

Bought my E320 (2000 - W210) from a 100% feedback dealer with a trail of selling big germans on ebay and got a great deal on a real cream puff. ( 10/04 72K $18.2K)

Your right, do your homework. Approach with caution.

How do you tell the first gen car from the later models?
a) 14 inch ‘bundt cake’ rims.
b) Ribbed lower side panels
c) That color brown is rare (if ever used) in second gen cars
d) The rear deck/parcel shelf with the first aid kit and speakers is different for 86
e) No tilting sunroof
f) Different seats
g) Different door panels material
h) Type, design, array of switches in the stack and console
i) Uber ugly DOT headlight assembly (actually the second gen DOT are ugly, too…)
j) Last year for the five cylinder engine was 85 (last year for the first gen.)

Well the 87 300SD has been corrected to show it as an '83[:0]

Did you drop him a friendly note??
