Where to buy a..?????

I am looking for a 1998 ml230 with a manual transmission. Does anyone know where to buy one. Import may be the only option?

Why would you want one? It's a low quality disaster on wheels.

However, if you really want one, you're going to have to import it and get it DOT legal before it hits our roads. Very expensive and absolutely not worth it for this vehicle. You may want to find a 320 with a scattered drivetrain that you can buy on the cheap. Then, find a donor drivetrain from a C class. Just an idea, expensive too.

My $0.02....buy yourself a G-wagen!

hank1919,

To purchase G-Wagen you can check out EUROPA G-Wagen USA.

Link: G.WAGEN USA

Another option is Ebay online.

I may do a G wagon, but I'll look more into it. I just saw a custom convertible M class in one of the JP movies and I fell in love with it. But I may do a G wagon instead. Thanks for the help guys!!
