My son has had his 300e for 5 1/2 years and I think together we are going to upgrade him. Target is in a couple of weeks.

First of all it has 215k miles on it. and the paint is faded on the hood and top..nice on sides. So you can quit reading if this is of no interest.

This has been an amazing car.... sure we have done stuff to it, rubber, fan clutch, water pump, and other nitpicky things. It hasn't been to a shop since we' ve owned it.

I got it from a guy in South Florida after haggling with him for months. At the time it had 147k miles on it.. but wait... it just had the A/C completely rebuilt (i have 3200 in receipts) and the head had been done and the transmission rebuilt just before he got it....

I simply won't part this car out. It has to go to someone. We are probably going to sell it in the 1200 range. The euro headlights will stay, rims will come off and stock will be put on with good rubber

It gets it's fluid changes regularly. We are fanatical about that. I believe the drivers rear window does not go down..and the front passenger is closed, but to get it up to snuff, it needs to be adjusted.

The car color is black/blue with grey tex interior.

It is currently located in Greenville, South Carolina

I have a complete list of what we have done.

Pictures available.

You will have a hard time letting this one go. Great care and documentation.
Someone will get a nice W124, if you really do sell it. I couldn't.
