Interior shots?

Do you have any interior shots? I'm curious about the four bucket seat configuration. Is it a 2+2?

Thx.

You can see pictures of the interior by clicking on the picasa URL at the end of the FS posting. Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

Could you post a picture of the driver seat? I want to see how it looks - I am in the market for a car like yours, and I want to make sure before I decide to drive down from Chicago.

Thanks.

I added pictures to http://goo.gl/wBgY2 of:
  • the driver's seat unstitched seam,
  • door interiors,
  • close ups of the wheels,
  • the hood dent,
  • a pair of small scratches on the right rear passenger door,
  • the rust buble above the driver's side windshield,
  • the residue from a magnetic emblem and
  • a touched up scratch that's been on the car since I bought it.

There are a few other small dents in body that don't show up on the pictures. You don't see them unless the lighting is just right and you are looking for imperfections.

I noticed some drops of oil on the garage floor from the car sitting in the garage for a week.

Thanks for the quick response. Looks reasonable to fix... or live with.

I am reading up on the W124 and trying to figure out how it would be to own one for the next few years (I have always wanted one since I was younger).

What has been your average maintenance over the 10 years you have owned it?

Here's some additional info based on questions I've received:

1. Head Gasket on your M104 engine; was it attended to/replaced?
The MB dealer replaced the head gasket at 78,231 miles (Jan 28, 2005) under warranty due to oil leakage.
2. Any AT/Transmission overhaul work during the life of this car?
The MB dealer replaced the transmission at 78,231 miles (Jan 28, 2005) under warranty due to delayed shifting and hard engagement.
3. Are you the actual purchaser (you reference purchased from MBZ/certified) 10 years ago?
Yes. I purchased the car as a certified vehicle with a Starmark warranty in Jan 2002.
