FS: 1993 300TE, 235k, 3.2I, RWD.

Selling my beloved 300TE. I am the 2nd owner, I bought it at 188k miles on Jan 1 2010. It now has 235k miles, almost exclusively highway miles (driving back and forth from San Francisco to Solana Beach).

Please do a search on this forum for my name to see the entire history of the car since I've owned it. I love this car very much and have maintained it as such.

3 things wrong with the car.
  1. pressure accumulators should be replaced (not essential, but back is bumpy)
  1. radio antenna doesnt come out anymore.
  1. engine shakes (misfiring?) - I have tried to fix this, as documented here, http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w124...ml#post5038975 but was not successful, otherwise I would keep it because it runs great, and I love the car.

Besides those 3 things, everything else on the car is incredible, and she runs like a champion race horse. If you search for me posts, You'll see I created a post citing that the AC does not blow cold. At the time, I only had the car for 3 months and did not realize that the setting was on the Economic mode. When you turn it off, the AC blows ice cold.

paint, all original, no fading whatsoever. no dents. everything is original, no aftermarket accessories. no rips in the leather.

If there is any interest, shoot me a reply. I am in Solana Beach, CA.

Ignition coils are brand new, spark plug wires are brand new. spark plugs and o2 sensor replaced within past 500 miles or so.

brake pads new and the rear rotors are new.

Pics of pretty much everything including interior, exterior and engine shots will help greatly.

Also if you have maintenance records and if you can mention what is done and whats not.
Like wiring harness, hg, trans services?

I have the maintenance records from what I've done to the car somewhere, possibly in my SF office. What was done before I bought it, I do not have.

I've done the radiator cap, and changed the hose that splits into two that has antifreeze running through it. Obviously oil changes every 3,000, obviously spark plugs, I've definitely done all the transmission services on time, the records are probably kept at the shop I did them at, so that would be available. All the "maintenance" stuff have been done religiously. and everything I mentioned in the previous post regarding ignition coils, ignition wires, o2, etc.

I'll take the pics when I have some time later this week. Please keep in mind that since I have not driven it, the outside is dirty. cleaning and wax would obviously reveal the exterior to look like the picture above.

the wiring harness probably not done, but i'll have to verify that with a mechanic.
