I am consolodating my fleet because I will be moving soon. Otherwise Id keep it because I love this car. I have had it since september 2000.

514k miles, very well maintained, and loved.

20% tint in rear, 38% tint in the front (metailic tint)
AN oil cooler lines
560 SEL brakes, professionally resealed, with bigger backing plates, etc. (stock 14" bundt cake wheels will not clear these brakes)
aftermarket radio with MP3 and input on the face, infinity kappa perfect speakers
antenna wired for XM
euro headlights with "chromed" insides
Im just going to sell it with the 15" wheels pictured. I know you have seen my car on 16, 17, 18 inch wheels on the forum, but the car is for sale with the 15" wheels as pictured.
euro warning triangle.
fire extinguisher brackets already installed to seat frame (no buckets or extinguishers yet)
passengers side convex mirror lense.
euro grey pin at trunk (to turn light off with trunk open)
... I can send you a spreadsheet.

Maintainence Items:
A/C compressor at 475k ish.
A/C Line at 495k.
Timing chain at around 500k miles (all new rails and pins), Im glad I caught that, the tensioner and banana rail almost failed. I am glad that I baselined the timing chain when I did.
cruise amp
rebuilt injectors at 510k, It didnt need them. I just wanted to do it.
New glow plugs at the same time
All new front suspension, including a steering box from a car with 30k miles.
replaced the ignition tumbler last month.
of course regular oil changes at about 3k miles.
recent tranny service 514k miles
valve adjustment, IP timing check 514k miles
renewed axle shafts 514k miles
european glow plug controler (with 60 seconds afterglow)<--probably doesnt need this, starts well as it is. 514k
new trunk seal 514k
I can send you a spreadsheet.

Extra Upgrades/ maintainence that I have started, but not finished:
boost gauge and pyrometer (EGT). I have the sensor in, the gauges would just need to be wired and installed in the car.

I have run biodiesel (www.mountainbiofuel.com) in it and it responds very well. It starts very well (after I did the glow plugs and injectors) even in the subfreezing temperatures. I was going to put in a block heater, but I havent had to use it yet. I personally feel that 50/50 biodiesel runs better and starts better.

This car has been very reliable for me. I was commuting from Tucson to Flagstaff in Summer 2005, and I have driven it to San Diego to see my family, more times than I can count on my fingers and toes.

And whomever buys my car will have first right of refusal to buy about a pallet full of parts (We can work that out too).

I will also be offering up my 1982 300CD (white) up for sale check back.
FS: 1982 300CD Located in Arizona $2500 OBO - ShopForum

I tried to be as detailed as possible and hit the major items, but if you have any questions let me know. I have a folder full of recepts about 2 inches, well over 15k of receipts. I always wanted to be able to hop in this car on friday night and drive anywhere I wanted within the USA.

If you don't like the price, then this car is not for you. It is ready to go another 100k+

18inch wheels are neither for sale nor included in the $6500 asking price.
