Selling the '98 S420, unexpectedly. A relative called 3 weeks ago and offered his 2008 750LI with 70,000 miles at a price I couldn't refuse.
Work that has been completed since I purchased the car in February 2014 w/ 102,000 mi:
New (used) MB metal cam oilers/valve cover gaskets. And since we were in there replaced: timing chain guides/rails
New brake pads/rotors (Brembo ceramics all the way around, Brembo rotors on front & ATE on rear)
B Service at 120,000 miles
Serviced transmission and replaced differential fluid
Painted front & rear bumpers along with rocker panels simply for a “refresh”.
ProgRama Inc Rebuilt Vac pump (under rear seat)
Replaced both seat bladders (from Eddie A)
Replaced passenger side window regulator
New battery from MB
Replaced child seat sensor in passenger seat
Replaced rear sway bar links/bushings
Applied 3M invisible protection to both headlamps
Replaced front shocks with Sachs Boge along with sway bar bushings/links
New Pioneer retractable screen head unit with blue tooth and back up camera
Needs attention: Upper control arms/ball joints, crack/scrape on front air dam, the A/C compressor makes an intermittent tapping noise. It has made the noise since my purchase and has not gotten any better or worse. The prior owner said it made the same noise when he owned it. A/C works as it should, so it doesn’t seem to be an issue.
Car currently has 120,328 miles and I am driving it on occasion. The prior owner was a snowbird in South Florida, thus the low mileage and the car has always been garaged. The car is in the parking garage at my office all day. No accidents. Price: $6,800. I have some records prior to 102,000 miles but ALL records from 102,000 on. Exterior is Black Opal. Pictures in the link below. Car is located in Mobile, AL
