New Benz Owner 560SEL 1991

Looking to replace my aging PT Cruiser (my first mid-life crisis car), I ran across this black on black 1991 560SEL for $2,500 and fell in love. It has about 130K miles on it and is in pretty amazing shape - but does seem to have many of the "traditional" minor issues discussed in these forums.

I am looking forward to finding digging deeper into these threads in search of the the solution to the central key locking issue and the intermittently blinking seat belt courtesy lights, as well as tracking down the mystery of frying fuse number 15.

Hoping to drive my new old car for a good long time - my PT Cruiser was a little bit fun but this is seriously awesome.

You will enjoy it. I have had three 560sel's,one 560sec,one 420sel and two 300se's but kept my last 300se. I am looking for a 560sel. They are fun to drive in Texas with vast distances. At 130k if it was well maintained it should be a great find. The 560 sel's will always be my favorite.

I enjoy crusing at three

God luck!!
