Excellent condition inside and out. Everything works as it did when it was new. It has the original leather, carpet, wood trim and even the Becker radio all still look and operate like new. The car has been professionally repainted a few years ago and shines beautifully and looks new. A/C has been converted and blows very cold out of the vents (validation of conversion is under hood). All features and options work and the engine and transmission are excellent. The cruise works like a new MB!
Original book of service recorded by Glauser MB. Receipts for work completed afterwards also included. Car is complete with two keys and one valet key (all original). I still drive the car but never in the rain and only once or twice a week. I have many more photos if you would like to see. Would make a great daily driver and I would have no issues driving it long distances i.e. it's been to NC and South Florida a handful of times already @80+ mph. Car has approximately 152,087 miles as of 02/20/2016.
Here is what's been done over the last few months:
new brake pads and rotors (4)
front and rear shocks and struts
engine service with fluid flush
oil change 2K miles ago
new windshield washer pump
all four wheels refinished
This was a one owner car when I purchased it in September of 2015 before he passed away. Car was in Fort Myers Florida and is now in Jacksonville, FL. Non-smoker and no "old" or "funny" odors.

I'm not a serious buyer, but I know one who has enlisted me to help them find a car, as they don't frequent this forum.
I think it's a fair question and your evasiveness in this regards makes me suspect. If there was a straightforward reason for you selling such a nice car after a relatively short time I'm sure people would understand. I would, because I've been in a similar situation.
