FS: 1997 S320 SWB Silver on Grey

I'm selling my 1997 S320 Short Wheel Base (SWB), which my brother (Steve211) bought from the original owners in February 2010. I bought it from him with about 33,000 miles in December 2010. It's been a great car but my wife would like an SUV. When he bought it, he serviced the car and had an oil analysis on the engine oil and transmission fluid from Blackstone labs, which showed both to be clean and in good shape. I have the reports and can e-mail them if interested. Mobil-1 0W40 engine oil has been used every 5,000 - 6,000 miles since acquiring from the original owner and the transmission was serviced with the proper MB fluid for the 5 speed (A 001 989 21 03 10) w/torque converter drained as well and new transmission filter and new plug adapter installed. Spark plugs were changed, power steering fluid and filter were changed, fuel filter, air filter and cabin filter were changed. Also, he installed an idler arm bushing kit, and new left, right and center tie rod links and a set of new tires and alignment at about 32,000mi and I installed new brake pads (Akebono ceramic front/OEM rear) and the sway bar drop links at 51,000 miles.

This car drives perfect and feels solid. All electronics work, including the door and trunk assisted closing. The interior is very clean and no tears in the leather. The outside is in very good shape but the bumpers show a bit of wear. The original owner parked the car in a carport but the rear bumper was not protected so the top of the bumper is faded a bit. The front has some scratches on the passenger side where she must have scrapped it in a parking garage. other than that, it's in very good shape and the paint color is still deep and clear. My brother and I only use Zaino Brothers car wash/polish (www.zainobros.com) and therefore I know the paint is protected. The original owner lived near Wilson, NC and my brother in SC so it has zero rust.

This really is a solid, well built car. We have 2 kids and therefore need an SUV to fit bikes or I would not be selling it.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to see more detailed pictures. However, the pictures don't do it justice.
