The weird part is that the ad actually disappeared for a few months. I first saw it last fall, and then it went away, and now it's back--and the price is like $1500 lower.

If I were closer to SF, I'd definitely go check it out just to see. Hard to imagine what the seller could be hiding given the description.

normal pricing, at best, for california. i am in mexico and the deals in southern california are superior to anything you can find in the southern part of the country.

99 silver/ash, 72K, sl-2 package, former starmark and mbz certified vehicle, newer michelin pilots, car is 9/10 condition inside and out, only the windshield washer dispensor motor does not work.

purchased for 9.6k on 12/2012 and probably couldve got it for 9.3 but was in no position to haggle as i made the deal over the phone before my buddy inspected the vehicle and i flew in for the purchase(this is my second r129).

12.7 for that vehicle is nothing special in CA and i wouldnt buy it as it does not have the sl-2 package nor the sl-1 package.

my deal was normal pricing for SoCal. there are even better deals out there, i was just set on the silver and the sl-2 package was not an option for me not to have.

oem xenon lights...a must have for the r129.

Personally I think the combination of the M119 V8 and 40k miles should bring $15k at least, if the car's as described.

You can add the AMG wheels/body kit later if you want, but you can't roll back the odometer (or transform a first-year M113 into a final-year M119).

From what I have seen that cars in general sell for less money in that part of the country. I think here in the NE corridor is where you end up paying the most for cars.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.
