PRICE DROP! $6,500. That is a fair price I believe... any takers? I love the car but really do not need 3 Mercs.
Time to let go of the black beauty...
I'm gonna get long winded here but I want to be honest about the car.
I will post pictures when I get the chance, likely latter today after work.
'01 CLK430 Coupe
Black paint - Good shape, hood has the requisite 100K chips but not too bad, a touched up key mark on the front left quarter panel. Paint is still shiny, front bumper is only 5 months old.
It was replaced when the front of the CLK hit the back of the ML, only the bumper was cracked.
17" Chrome AMG staggered rims. Some chrome is peeling, and they do have curb rash. Really not in great shape but cleaned up they still look very nice at a roll or from a few feet away.
The tires have about 75% tread left, I'm guessing but at least that I'd say.
Bad: Rear left rim just blown out, hit something on Rt 42 in NJ. There is a small crack in the rim, damn it all!
Not real bad but not real good: CD player has the infamous 'now I work, now I don't' issue. No idea how to fix it, used to be able to pull the cartridge & put it back and it would work - that doesn't cut it anymore.
Radio works perfectly as do all speakers.
Glass: Mint. Not a scratch on it anywhere, and the front windshield is also new -replaced it in Dec. of '08 due to cracking it when the wiper slipped out of my hand replacing the blade. Yeah, that was a painful & expensive slip.
It's slightly blueish tinted, I forget what that may be called.
Runs excellent, accelerates quickly & smoothly.
Just changed oil (full Mobil 1 of course) about 300 miles ago.
Seems to be a bit of oil on left side of head, but I never have found any leak and don't seem to burn oil.
Smooth, never had a problem.
Never drove a brand new w208, bought this with 49K on the clock & owned it for past 4 years, so I don't know what a new one shifts like but this works well IMHO. I have driven smoother shifting vehicles though, to be honest.
Grey / Ash, whatever the color is. The interior is fair, it has some notable wear.
Driver seat has 2 torn SEAMS, no actual leather torn. Left lumbar & center bottom seam.
Left door panel trim on bottom cloth is loose, and the speaker cover on same door is busted. The speaker works fine, it is the cover that needs to be replaced.
The steering wheel is worn heavily, but not tears or stiching damage. All wheel buttons work just fine.
I have both cloth & rubber CLK matching floor mats. The cloth ones are in pretty good shape - certainly not new but not all stained up.
Replaced electronic ignition about a year & a half ago.
Replaced passenger cats at the same time or very close to it.
New windshield washer pump, 2 months old.
New CPS about 1.5 years ago as well.
AC recharged a week or two ago (with the dye in it), blows cold but not real strong. We could not find a leak, but I suspect there may be one since I had to recharge it.
Front wheel bearings (both sides) replaced 2 weeks ago.
Owners manual & first aid kit's still in car.
Spare tire is like new, all tools to use it still in vehicle.
Battery is about 2 years old and has never given me a problem.
RENNTech ECU (I also have a factory ECU)
RENNTech full suspension (still have factory parts).
Title in hand.
The car runs well, starts instantly,
Just hit me up with any questions.
I would like to get $7,500 for the car.
I think that's reasonable, but hey, I'm also the owner so I know my perspective is a little skewed. Talk to me, make an offer.
