1993 300ce CABRIOLET

Just purchased this recently for $6900 with taxes and tags. Another $3500 in parts, tools and labor should have her looking pretty and riding smooth. The car has never left Southern California and was traded in to a dealer in Los Angeles. The records seem to indicate that it was fully serviced by the original dealership while under warranty up to 50,000 miles. After which it was not treated as kindly. The list included:
oil filter was crushed and twisted
convertible switch was broken but functional
all fluids were disgusting
always failed smog check according to carfax report
rear brake pads were shot
spark plugs were grimy
fuel and brake lines needed replacement
egr valve replacement and cleaning of egr tube
all tie rods replaced both sides
poly v belt replaced
accessory tensioner pulley replaced
accessory tensioner shock replaced
idler pulley replaced
transmission filter replaced
transmission flush
rear axle gear fluid flush
power steering flush
power steering filter replaced
coolant flush
many other minor jobs

The paint, interior, electrics and convertible top are as close to mint as you will find on a 98,000 mile 20 year old car.

As the job gets completed by the end of the week I will post more pictures but there are already some posted under my account name.

Love this site as it has already made life easier many times over the last week.
