Well, this is my ride.... (permanently dissabled traction control= LOTS More Power)
E430 MERCEDES BENZ "TOKYO DRIFT STYLE" DRIFTING ON DIRT - Google Video
I need to add that I rebuilt this car and TUNED it for sports car purposes. Therefore dissabling the traction control, and I think the ABS is dissabled.
But this car was rebuilt By me, for me.... for my lesiure.
This car is VERY WELL broken into when it comes to flooring it, tight turns, fast stops, drift, etc...
If thats what you like in this car, Then you dont have to worry about a transmission failure, engine failure, or any type of mechanical failure.
W210 2001 upgrades
NO TRACTION CONTROL... very fast
LOW MILAGE... 78K
Probably needs CATS
Electrical Fire under hood when I purchased it.
missing tow hitch cover... Replaced that section with a mesh grill. looks nice
potential negative specs.
needs small electrical work: aux fans (Used to work) Horn/fanfare (Never worked)
left xenon headlight ocasianally shuts off (dry rotteted wire, I'll fix that though)
"Brake" warning light used to come on because of a loose wire... hasnt bothered me for 2 weeks. Dash Board shows: ABS/BAS Malfunction (Thats due to the dissabled traction control) Low Brake Fluid (!) (thats from the "Brake" loose wire, nothing hazardous, just annoying) Display defective (Probably because I changed the instrument cluster) Lamp Defective (thats that annoying warning light that I never tryed to look into... from what Ive read here, it can be fixed)
This car had an electrical fire under the hood. I repaired everything and everything works great... unless it has been listed above.... The car is a beutiful car.
