1998 SL500 F/S

its time to separate after 4 years ... the family grow .
1998 sl500 silver with hard top and 98,000 miles.
is has the xenon and heating seats
asking $4999
the car is in very good condition mechanically.
no accidents , some scratches on the front and rear bumper.
out side is 8/10.

interior is in great condition.

at the last 10000 miles i changed fuel and air filter.
atf fluid and filter.
spark plugs
brake fluid
coolant.
i also replaced the camshaft adjuster magnets.
took care of the known problem of the ticking.(replaced the oil tubes at the top end).

the Bad:

srs light is on due to the passenger seat sensor broke.

based on this condition my asking is $4999 which i think is great price.

Thats a really, really good price for a car in your condition. The fixes are easy IMO. You should sell it quick I would think. I paid almost double for mine last year... but it was pretty mint with 44k miles. Still, a '98 in great shape for under $6k seems like a steal.

Get some great photos, and great description and I would think it would be gone in a few days on CL or eBay. Great deal for someone who knows what these cars cost.

The cylinder is very easy to fix DIY. If you can fix it yourself, I think you should be able to get an even higher price. Honestly I've looked at beaters with worn interiors and average exterior condition for the price you are asking. Your car doesn't look like a beater for sure. Good luck with sale.
