1998 E300 Turbodiesel (W210)

I am the second owner of this car. I purchased it with 99045 miles from a Lexus dealer.
I’m asking $7,700.

Here are the details:
193,811 miles
No Rust, no dings, no body repair
Xenon headlights
Bose sound system with 6 CD changer
Adjustable Orthopedic seats both sides. These seats adjust the lumbar support and length of the bottom seat cushion.
The car has side airbags in the front.
It has brake assist. This is when you hit the brakes quickly it applies full braking pressure immediately until you let up.
Also has ESP, Electronic Stability Program. It keeps the wheels from spinning when power exceeds traction.

Driveshaft, water pump, thermostat, fan assembly replaced under used car warranty directly after purchase. Transmission fluid& filter replaced at the same time by the MB dealer that did the driveshaft.
12/8/2006 I replaced the fuel lines from the injection pump as well as the washers and seal to cure a fuel leak. The shut-off valve was also replaced.
4/17/07 I replaced the front rotors with cryogenically treated ones along with new pads. Both came from Porterfield.
6/4/2008 The AC compressor, receiver/drier and expansion valve were replaced. The system was also flushed as the previous compressor destroyed itself. That was $1861, ouch.
11/30/2010 I had the windshield replaced, it looked like had been sandblasted there were so many tiny chips in it. Made it hard to see, especially at night.
12/28/2010 the battery was replaced. That was the original battery in the car. It lasted so long that I put another MB battery in it from the dealer.
Rear rotors and pads are new as is the rear muffler.
Front upper ball joints with control arms, lower ball joints and anti-sway bar links and bushings just replaced.
I performed all regular service per the maintenance booklet. Additionally, I changed the transmission fluid and filter at 150,000 miles. This is one of the last transmissions (722.6 five-speed) that has a drain plug on the torque converter.
It is very reliable and has never failed to start immediately and run smoothly with strong AC.
Tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE960as Pole position with 50% to 75% tread remaining. Full size spare, jack and tool kit.

Glass Moon roof tips up and slides back. I replaced lift and slides and cables.
Car passed Virginia safety inspection in September, which is fairly thorough.

Comes with 4 extra wheels and winter tires.

Car is located in Marshall, VA about 50 miles west of DC.

I have more and better quality pictures. Please contact me at juergenhbr@ieee.org
