New Owner From Los Angeles
Been looking at the big sedans on and of for over 10 years and finaly bought a 1988 300sel in pretty good shape w/165,000 miles on it. THe seller was a con man, I think he buys and flips cars, but my wife and I didn't care. I checked it out pretty carefully and my mechanic confirmed it to be in overall solid shape. Surprsingly, my wife put it into perspective when she said to me, "Look thuis guy is full of shit but for $2300 we could absorb a mistake. It would hurt, but it's not like we're spending $10K" Bought the car and dig the heck out of it. Looking for a replacement heater/AC control unit (we knew we needed this from the outset). Would appreciate any help in locating a functioning unit at a reasonable price. By the way, this forum is amazing. Spent a couple of hours last night reading and getting alot of good background and tips.
