Unhappy Selling my 89 420 SEL

Hi all I am selling my 89 420 SEL.

Color: Mother of Pearl and it is Fresh Paint

Interior: Burgundy Leather

I have had or done these items in the last 8n months.

New Tires, brakes, tune up within the last 2000 miles. New Sony CD player. Transmission service, rear end service, A/C service. Complete front end rebuild. Upper and lower control arms, inner and outter tie rods and center and shock. New Bielsten shocks in the front and rear.

I have also replace the headlight bezels and upgraded the head lights to HID 9004-2 8000k. When the car was painted I took specail car in taking all the Alum trim off and took special car in polishing it all. I have been asked before if I wanted to sell the car and I had an offer of $7,000 and I turned it down. I was proud of my work and my sweet looking SEL.

I am still proud of her and want to keep her but I want a SL!!! So I have 2 other cars so one has to go. The SUV is the wifes and then I have a 91 300ZX with 70,000 miles I don't want to sell that but the wife says that is the one that should go.

The 89 420 SEL with 150,000 miles and that will be after next week because I am driving her to FLorida and back. Current mileage is 146980. I am asking $4750.00. If you have cash and no games I might let it go for less.... If you want pictures send me a private message.

The int. has 2 issues. bottom of the driver seat has the stiching ripped and the arm rest that is it! NO Cracks any where or rips anywhere. A/C will run you out of there and gas miles I get roughly 18to 20 in town and on the highway 23 to 27 depending on if the A/C is on or not.

I look forward in hearing from all of you.
