some of you know that i have been researching buying a w126 (other than ebay) and wanted to share with you what the market is supporting as far as "asking" and "settled" (fair market value) prices for low mileage w126s. i still haven't taken the plunge, but i wanted to give you the benefit of what i've learned in the last two months of my searching ,,, i'll limit my bombinations below to just three w126s!

1. 1990 560 sel. black/black. 45,000 miles. super clean. no maintenance history. asking: $22,900. sold: $20,000. dealer.

2. 1991 560 sel. black/black. 47,000 miles. trim issues (broken center console box cover, inoperative rear sunshade, small rub on the right front and rear quarter panels), maintenance history questionable ,,, otherwise brilliant. asking: $15,000. sold: $14,600. private party.

3. 1990 300 sel. chinchilla/chocolate brown. 56,000 miles. super clean. a/c blower motor inop. everything else worked. maintenance history from day one. asking: $13,500. sold: $13,000. private party.

just fyi. ///ajm

Thanks for the info...

It would seem people, including dealers, are buying into the low miles myth with MB.

When I bought mine, it had about 95K miles on it. My thinking was "it's just getting broken in". The PO had already had the timing chain reworked, so a major expense was already covered. So it was a no-brainer to buy. Paid $8000 for it, mostly due to an expensive sound system they had installed. Otherwise it would have been about $6500 or so. I can't see paying more than $10K for one of these cars. Use the difference in cost to fix one up, and save money overall.

I guess I've got it good in southeast FL. Just missed a SD with one owner, always garaged and full history 60K miles- 3 grand. I bought my SD with 225K miles and a bad paint job but new tranny and full paper history for a song.
