Thanks for your comments. This winter, I am trying to keep my small racing team busy in the non-racing season. And, as our superstar driver is running out of trust fund money, we may have to look at plan B this year. With friends in the car business, I have picked up a few nice VW's and Audis, mostly pre 2007, at auction. Had the boys clean/ fix anything and have had no problem getting $5-$6,000 very quickly on Craigs list. Yet this W210 is the nicest of them all, truly a spectacular car that I have now driven over 3k miles because I just can't help it. Yet I will probably be lucky to get $5,000 for it. Last summer, I tried to sell my mint 1972 280SEL/4.5 to a US buyer but got zero interest even at a good price. However I found several serious European buyers with the car finally going to Sweden. I guess just not much value is given to old Mercedes sedans in the US, so back to flipping Jettas and Quattros! As to the rad hose, it looks new, as does the water pump. Could there have been a rub strip there that has partially come off? Others have seen it too, so I guess I should clean it up there, it could rub against the intake cover so will fix that. Great car though, I think I may just keep this one for me!
