Nothing wrong with that. The worst folks can say is no.

That is a beautiful car BTW. Good luck with the sale.

The updated asking price is reasonable given the condition & mileage. I'd be interested myself if I had the $$$. I really do like that color... droool....

Darby some of the current offerings from EBAY.

Here is 1992 500e 79k miles on EBAY NO RESERVE

Mercedes-Benz : E-Class 500E in Mercedes-Benz | eBay Motors

Here is 1993 500e 64K miles asking $12,900.

Mercedes-Benz : 500-Series E in Mercedes-Benz | eBay Motors

These are 20 year old vehicles. No matter what 20 years take a toll.

I have seen and driven Darby's car. It is a very nice car, but not perfect.
The flashing SRS and ASR lights as well as an A/C problem accompanied by the car running warm to hot. I did not put the car in the air so I can not speak of the undercarriage and the condition, or whether all componenets are dry and without seppage or being wet. I didn't know where to take it, that would allow me to do so. I drove it and it seemed ok. Some sweating of oil on the timing cover, as well as the air induction tubes falling apart.

I do like the car, of course it being teal is a 1 up for the car for me.
Darby I thought you were going to wait till the winter?

^^^Windy City seller (1993 500e on ebay) is a bunch of crooks. Run scared from anything and everything they offer. Just FYI.

There's an extensive thread on the Windy City Canyon Brown / Rosewood car on 500Eboard.com... that car has really gotten around, it was a hot potato passed from one dealer to another. At least Windy City fixed the bad transmission and they are admitting it had the SLS removed, which prior dealers did not. Kind of a shame since it's one of the rarer .036 colors.

The teal car for sale is a 1992 model year. It was manufactured in 1991, hence the confusion. All years of the 500E's should drive the same unless they are modified.

Hey Darby,
I'm a fan of Kieffers, they for sure know these cars. From my limited experience they are good guys.
Always willing to help, I get parts/fluids from them for decent prices too. (same $ as internet, but local source)
I'm from the same area, and must say I have not seen your teal 500, or any teal 500 for that matter. Looks great, GLWS.
