Domimax, thanks for spotting the Carfax discrepancy. I contacted Auto Haus and they resent the "correct" Carfax which has mileage but no other facts. Would a good PPI be enough to compensate for lack of records or should I just drop this one? Any thoughts.

I don't need to rush on a purchase but I'm looking for a Euro 280 or 380SL in good condition for under 8k and haven't found anything. I did find lots in the UK but then have the problem with the right-hand drive...

Somehow in my minds eye I cannot see how a Carfax on a Euro car is of much good.

Can anyone else comment on that? Rowdie?

The Carfax doesn't seem to help, I agree. In the meantime I spoke to the dealer and price and he doesn't want to come down below 9500. Given the lack of documentation and the odometer I think that is high. I'm willing to pay 7500 but not more.

I bought 2 cars from that dealer and are very happy with the professional service I received.
To find a Euro for that price you have in mind is like you already found out not possible.
280SL in excellent condition are selling in Germany above 20000 Euro., so you might come down on your expectations on a below $9000.00 car.
