SoCal Selling my 93 W140 70k orig miles DD 3200
I love this car, But I am putting it up for sale to buy an AMG car.We inherited a little money so I am looking to buy a CLK 55.No hurry to sell it as I have quite a few hours into it.
About the car- 1993 400SEL .Some rich person donated it. It wasn't running well and they
must have figured it would be expensive to fix.I bought it and educated myself about the car here and replaced the following:
Both fuel pumps (due to the age)- oe bosch
fuel filter- mahle
oil and filter mobil one and mahle
mercedes thermostat and mercedes coolant
mercedes transmission filter and royal purple fluid drained entire system
cap and rotors bosch
bosch 02 sensor
oe front rotors and pads
It runs great -its barely broken in
the close assist is not working currently, I will try to get it sorted out, the
gap needs to be reset.
The gas door area has some paint issues from spillage-have not tried to buff it out.A painter told me it was common with European cars.
good tires,pioneer stereo with ipod.
This car is an absolute joy to drive. 3200. Great deal! just try to find a w 140
with less mileage that has been completely gone through my an ASE master tech. The 93 400SEL has a built in code reader, the steel coolant pipe and a trans dipstick. It gets remarkably good gas mileage. I drive it daily. Let me know if you would like more photos, or if you want to test drive. I would be surprised if someone could find a nicer car for sale with this low of mileage and this high of original sticker price for the price of a worn out Honda. Clean title.
F Bumper has some scuffs . I will post more photos this week. 60 miles north of LAX right of the 101.
