Hi Members, here are some pictures from last summer of my E500 that I wish to share with you. Its 1993 E500 imported from Germany in 1997. I bought it in early 2004 and have driven it on weekends ever since. It has done around 171,000km and runs like its done 15,000km, this engine is silky smooth! It gets new oil and filters every 3000 miles and it never driven hard. Its very powerful pushing out 326BHP but can be very relaxed when you want it to. It's know was the velvet hammer [:D] and as most of you know designed and produced with collaboration with Porsche.. Enjoy the pictures and thanks for reading.

Regards,
Mo

Thank you - I might respray to 040 Jet Black - Any thoughts? I have asked at 500E.com they said its very hard to maintain and keeping it flawless/near perfect - Any W124 owners have jet black/ flat black cars? Thanks help appreciated,

i've seen pics of that car before, but i still get really jealous whenever i see it... oh well -- i still love my 400E...

which, by the way, is black (not sure if it's "jet black" but it's non-metallic and black, so i guess it is). i really like the charcoal color, but i have to admit that i think black packs a little more of a badass punch, and it also goes better with smoked tail lights and corners.

Abbam,

Could you give me an idea as to what sort of prices I would be looking at to buy a similar age and mileage E500 to yours in the UK.

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you.

If you only want to look in the UK, i think you are going to have to pay around £10,000+ for a well looked after car, cheaper ones are available but BEWARE. If you want to travel to Germany, you will find one for less money, but be prepared to travel MANY KMS for the right car. On the otherhand, if you are patient, I will be selling my 92 500E (pics attached) with quite a unique dashboard (only ever seen 1 other on the net)once I replace it with my new car hopefully in the next couple of months.

Hello,

Wow thats a beautiful 500E, I saw that one for sale when I was buying mine, but I really wanted a black one!!

Anyways I have attached some new pictures for you guys with my 18" BBS CH wheels!

The last picture the back wheel looks a little high because the car is at an angle, its low trust! Hopefully ASR Defeat and 1st gear start coming soon. AMG Suspension fitted to this E500 and soon K&N filters will be done. Tires are continental's 245/45/ZR18. Also I have painted the calipers Red but thinking of changing them to the one off the W211 E55 AMG, I have seen them fitted on a W124 and they look & perform flawlessly!

Nice car you got there too! mine should be for sale if I can negotiate a deal on my new toy, W124 E60 AMG, trouble is, my silver car has been so great and never missed a beat, its going to be hard to part with it!

Here's some photos of the E500 I have for sale at the moment.

The last photo was taken yesterday as we struggled down a mountain in France where we had just finished a skiing holiday......2ft of fresh snow at the top. The picture you see here is half way down where the snow plow had managed to clear some of the road....unbelievable conditions for so late in the skiing season!

As for the car it sat all day at 100mph or 160kph without breaking sweat....once we had managed to break free of the snow of course

Fantastic cars!!!!!!
