More info...

The car was purchased from a Mercedes-only, German mechanic in California in 2000. It had 165,000 miles and he gave me a 1-year warranty! I used it for a freeway commute for a couple of years, and it was always maintained in excellent running condition. When we moved to Providence 2 years ago, it got almost no use for a while, then has been garaged for about the past year. I wish I didn't have to sell it, but we're moving back to California and there's no easy way to get it there.

On top of that, it won't soon be exempt from the revised CA smog rules. It needs a bit of work to pass RI smog, but it is exempt in MA now, and will be exempt in RI and many other states next year.

The new transmission was paid for by the tow truck driver's insurance company ;) I have receipts for most of the other maintenance work and a Chilton's manual, but no owner's manual.

I'd like to get something for the car, and for it to go to someone who will appreciate it as much as we have. I don't know what the right price is, but I'm open to reasonable offers.

Thanks for your interest. - K

Thanks for the calls, and for patience with my post-bumping.
