1999 E300D diesel for sale, Northern CA - Rare car, custom paint

'99 E300D Turbodiesel for sale.

Awesome, Rare, Well taken care of car - with custom paint.

Engine runs strong. Stock, with computer flash by some guy out east (forgot the name). Will pass CA smog no problem - I will smog it if buyer is in CA. Car has around 250k miles, but has had recent work including:

Newer tires (only a few thousand miles)
Newer brakes ---- ^^^^^
New Eibach lowering spring kit
Newer aluminum wheels
New headlights
New paint and body kit
New Grille
Carbon Fiber body kit
Carbon fiber hood
New water pump
New serpentine belt
Fresh oil change (amsoil synthetic)
New fuel filter
Most o-rings / fuel lines replaced.
New key / remote (old one died - still kinda works)

Car has a salvage title - It was my daily driver for a few years, and I hit a feet in Nebraska. Insurance totaled the car as damage was on the cusp of current value coupled with that it would need a 2 way tow from near wyoming to lincoln to be checked at a dealer. I took the salvage value, and bought it back. Then I put it all back together. Needed radiator, hood, bumper, fender and windshield. Core support was straightened. No frame damage. Would be happy to share pics of the damage with prospective buyers.

After I put it together, car was given a body kit, and painted matte gunmetal silver. It looks awesome.

You can see a ton of pics at:

Since pics taken - replaced front bumper with stock style (painted same as car) as it was too low and rubbed everywhere I went. Front trim has been installed, and hood / fender aligned. Headlights replaced with JDM style black "projector" lights.

Interior is super clean

Has an alpine MP3 radio with boston acoustics speakers.

Things that need attention:
- AC system had a leak - I fixed and need to charge - Will do this week.
- Driver door does not turn on dome light.
- Throws a check engine light occasionally from computer re-flash (only happens when you stomp on it to pass when the car is cold - I think it's from EGR delete) Re-sets at next startup.

Car runs and drives beautifully. I hate to see it go, but I have too many projects and a new business.

$7,800 or best offer

Will deliver reasonable distance for mileage fee - or can help arrange transport.
