It's a great car - hate to part it out even though I could probably get more for it in parts - thanks for the note!

Just as an update - I have been informed that the lack of reverse is caused by a blown piston seal - about two hours of labor.

Well, you can replace the seal that quickly, but w/o taking out and tearing down the transmission it's impossible to tell w/ 100% certainty. The .3 is Very hard on it's reverse clutches, so to not replace them (quite honestly, all of them @ this mileage) would be a bit of a gamble.

Killer wagon though, wish you were closer!!!!;-)

Thanks for the advice - just one question - what is the .3 that you are referring to?

thanks...it's a sickness..;-)

530K..My Word! Impressive...!! @ least you know Everything has been done @ that point so you should be Good to Go!!!

M103's are damn near indestructible....I know as I half heartedly tried to kill one from the 170 to 240K mark.

Yes I know - I told my friend in Switzerland today that I might need counseling for this! I now own two 1995 E320 wagons - the other one has 38k on it (Georgia car btw), the 1992 300TE and a 1987 560 SEC

Did you pick that 38K car up recently? There was one for sale here that had sat for quite a while a few months back..

that is is the one that I purchased - the guy kinda screwed me on it - posted photos that made the car look brand new but both the bumpers were completely sun-faded. Had to replace the OVP relay as the car could not drive around the block without shutting down 10 times. Still a problem with the ASR light but now at least it is drivable.

Yes I am the sap that bought it :)

Ahhh..I figured it went away, I was tempted but the fellow selling didn't make me feel Good.. Shame we didn't chat sooner, a client of mine went to go look @ it and took a rash of photos etc.. Next time;-)

Interior is all sunfaded - but the dash is not cracked - no A/C either - both headlights have cracks in them - hood needs a repaint - it is a lesson for me.

we All have stories like that, trust me.. AC won't hold it's charge?? Will it hold 12 inches for 24 hours?

If you can find a talented dye guy up there I'm sure he could get the interior looking Good.

Have not tried it yet - trying to get the car to get the code for the ASR light 1st - my mom has been in the hospital and then a nursing home so that all took a backseat for the last couple of months - will probably do this next week since she is better now.

Nice SEC! - I also have one - a 1987 560 SEC pictured here when I was converting the headlights to euro-spec lights
