Well you managed to get me talking, you know me, Mr. manual transmission maniac himself.
I saw one of these cars one time. This would be a GREAT car to have. If it is well maintained and checked out, he should buy it, even if only to find some terminal manual transmission freak like myself to sell it to.
Had I not recently bought the C240, I would be interested.
I certainly understand your missing your 5 speed 300E.
Have a great day,
