Hey..I'm new to the forum..glad I found the site though..anyway..

I currently own a 91 300SE, awesome benz, love it, but thinking about buying a 93 300SE. Looks great and the owner has records of everything. Wondering if anyone has any intput on whether I should purchase or's a list of what he's had repaired/maintained:

"The following items have been replaced; Radiator, Antenna Assembly, Vacuum Pump (for automatic door and trunk closures), Blower Motor Sublet and New Climate Control Sublet (for Air Conditioner). "

Car looks great, even with 118k miles on it, and I'd definitely have it checked out by my mech...but the price seems "fair" - so I thought I'd ask anyone's input..should I go for the new 300 or stick with my old school big body benz? lol -

thanks for any info anyone can pass along

purchase or not

That all depends on your priorities...

I personally worship how the w140 looks, i think its the most intimidating most powerful looking benz every made. The w126 is my second favorite, i vote that over the new s class on outside look.. i actually owned a 90 300se...

So if you like the w140 and you always wanted one and you can afford it, then go get one.....

But if you love ur current 300se and its working fine and you dont have the strong urge to purchase a
w140, then stick with it..

If you decide to buy a w140, and you can afford one, i recommend you buy a 96 and up...because the first few year of a new model had some problems to be tweeked over the first few years... As i said if money is no object buy a 97 or up s500 or s600...if money is an issue get a 96 s320 or s420.

If money is very tight and you want that new 300se...look up private party value, and if you can get it at that or cheaper, thats a great deal. Have checked by mechanic first though...

good luck
