Hi everyone,

I've recently become quite fond of the 500e and was hoping to buy one, however after a bit of reading I quickly found out how desirable they are. What is the average going price for these models? How many people on this forum own one? Just curious :)

Thanks,

Spencer

It's really all about vehicle condition and service records, service records and more service records.

Worst mistake you can make is by getting lulled into getting a "cheap" Mercedes. There is nothing more expensive, especially so with a niche model like the W124 500E/E500.

Best money saved is by getting the best possible vehicle you can find. That means the price should not be #1 requirement. If price is a concern, get a 400E/E420 for a fraction of the price and get 85% of the 500E/E500 joy.

Thanks for the info! Do any companies offer reproduction panels so I could have the 500 body flares?

I think there were a handful of 3rd fibreglass type panels. The originals are still available from MB, but with the expected MB 500E/E500 price tag.

Google is your best friend for this type of search.

FWIW, there was somebody (from Australia???) selling some 500E wings a while back. Do a search on this forum.
