I've decided to sell my white elephant. Below are the details. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
-1992 500 sel white/grey ext, mushroom interior.
-W220 AMG staggered wheels.
-I bought it from the original owner family.
-Always garaged since new.
-Previous owner didn't keep records but I did since I got it. Below are the items I've done:
+New engine mounts.
+New rear accumulators.
+Used known good EZL.
+New belt tensioner.
+New distributor caps. (old ones are original since new and nothing's wrong. But my mechanic pointed out that there is an updated part so I swapped it out when replaced the EZL)
+New kick down switch.
+Oil changes every 4k-5k with mobil 1 synthetic oil.
-The wiring harness is almost new (previous owner mentioned he swapped it already and my mechanic inspected the wires and all seems to be in good order. You can check it on your own.)
-Still has original key box. Two remote keys and one valet key.
-Interior is immaculate with no tears or worn spots.
-All electronics work. AC blows ice cold. Soft close works on all doors and trunk (including the close assist flap).
-Rear power bench with seat heaters.
-Transmission shifts very smooth.
-The car rides and drives very well.
-Engine idle is very stable and temp never goes above 100. Always btw 80 and 100 no matter how hot outside. Speaking of temps, the aux fans works just fine.
-Engine doesn't burn oil. Doesn't leak any fluids.
-Paint is still shinny and has a lot of life left. Usual small nicks and chips.
That's the good stuff that I can think of. I'll update if I can think of more.
Here are some cons:
-When engaging the turn signal, the dash warnings blink for a split second. Everything is still functional and no issues with operation but just blinks really quick.
-One of the rear vanity mirror lock is broken so I have to keep it in place with small piece of paper.
-Radio works fine but just needs a little warming up. When you turn it on, the sound is weak but after a couple of minutes it sounds just fine. (One of the best sounding systems I have heard, better than the H.K sys in my dad's w221 and better than the lynn sys in my DB9. )
Well that's pretty much it. Some of you may ask why am I selling it?? The answer is .. I am bored. I need something different. I need something with manual tran. My DB9 is auto, w124 is auto and the w140 is auto, so I want something small, fun and with manual tran.
I am asking $6000 and a little bit flexible on the price. Just a little. The car is currently in North San Jose. If you are interested you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
