I'm putting my 1988 300CE up for sale, I've had the car for about a year now and have invested lots of time and money but currently have 4 W124 cars and need to make space for other projects! she's runs very well, pulls strong and shifts smooth. Ideally will go to another enthusiast who will continue to care for it and keep it on the road.

195,000 miles, about 8,000 a year
Clean title, 3rd owner, no accidents, 100% rust free
Strong and efficient 3.0 liter 6-Cylinder with Automatic transmission
NO warning or check engine lights on

Pros:
-Original 040 Black paint w/palomino leather interior, a great 10ft car
-Car runs and drives well, the M103 in this car pulls stronger than the one in my 120k mile '90 300E, especially good power in the 0-40 mph range
-Power windows, airbag, sunroof, power seats, power telescoping steering wheel, heated mirrors, belt presenters, etc
-Transmission was rebuilt and has ~75k miles on it, also recently serviced
-Rare genuine Lorinser full body kit and spoiler made in Germany
-High-end audio system with upgraded speakers (6), tweeters (4), and Pioneer head unit w/ iPod/iPhone connectivity, professionally wired for amp and subwoofer.
-Mille Miglia wheels, tires have good tread
-Original factory tool kit, jack, spare, and owners manuals
-Factory service manual
-LOTS of extra and spare parts included, black grill surround, custom built strut bar, etc.
-Almost 25 years old! (collector plates, no registration, collector insurance rates)

Recent work:
-Oil change about 100 miles ago w/new OEM filter
-Full transmission service 200 miles ago with new filter, fluid, seals, etc. Shifts smooth.
-New brake pads and sensors
-New LCD outside temperature gauge
-New window relays and switches
-New fuses and bulbs all around including H4 headlights
-OEM Hella full glass European-spec headlights and wipers
-New European-spec dark-amber turn signals
-Updated Bosch 94/95 style taillights and bulbs
-Replaced battery cables
-Replaced EHA valve
-Replaced airbag with good unit from low mile '91 300E
-Replaced right side fuse bank and cover
-Sunroof tracks cleaned and serviced with MB grease
-Numerous new relays and electric modules
probably lots more that I'm forgetting!

Cons:
-Typical wear for a 24 year old car, paint shows well but has some small dents and flaws, some interior trim is showing its age
-Leather was re-dyed in the past and the front seat now has some cracks
-Exhaust is loud (for a Mercedes), quoted $400 for full new system
-right rear quarter window doesn't work
-Heater and A/C works but doesn't really move air, maybe needs blower motor.

Price is $3500 but don't hesitate to PM me an offer, I'd be willing to work out a deal, especially for a fellow BW member and the worst I can say is no! The car is located in Friday Harbor Washington on San Juan Island but could meet in Anacortes, WA (about 1.5 hours north of Seattle) to avoid the ferry

PM to ad or email me direct at [email protected]

Thanks!

I was just in George, WA, I did a show at The Gorge. I wish I could have taken a look at this when I was there. If not for me, at least to report to the forum members. GLWS, you have a great looking coupe!
