New Head Gasket Means Better Performance

Since the new head gasket put in in 2008, the engine performance has been great, I am assuming due to a clean polished throttle body or head. I am not sure anymore on the terminology since I am not a mechanic and I have moved on to other interests but this car is definitely better than most of the other mid-high mileage Mercedes out there. The car has not only been maintained but is now reconditioned. It is like driving a new car. I must note that going to a dealership has its benefits, like two experts working on the same car at once and getting the job done right the first time. I have no complaints. Princeton Mercedes Benz is probably one of the best servicers out there and German Car Shop in Edison came highly recommended by a master performance mechanic I knew in the area at the time. My only issue with German Car Shop was that I had no place to wait for their excellent work to get done. Brown MB, who put on rear pads and did regular oil changes, plus the rear differential gasket on the car, did a fine job as well. Most people who see my car assume it is a 2000 year model because it looks and drives so nice. There is an offer on the table but please do not hesitate to bid!

Tune-ups and plug replacements all done on time every time by expert MB mechanics!

Is That An Offer?

Turbonium - You have a nice ride. Maybe you would like to make an addition to your fleet.

Post 4Matic

Yes, I would take another Benz any day, maybe a 4Matic. But I doubt I will find one as nice as mine now.

I would get $2,800.- for my 1996 E320 , would be a loss of $4K after 3 years of possession.

Good luck! What will the next car be? W211 or W212?

If you ask me, the eBay ad is not really inviting. The photos are few, small, in inadequate quality and do not show the best of your car. The open hood could raise questions. There is a lot of cars on eBay, yours needs to stand out more. One thing more: "Buyer pays eBay fee" is perculiar, a turn-off for sure. Constructive comments though.

Good luck with the sale!

W210 1996 E320 Exterior Smoke Silver, Interior Mushroom, 159,999 miles as of 09/09/09, 170K as of 02/01/2011.

Texholdem is right. Those pictures are not that good. But rest assured, the car is great.
