DON'T HAVE A TECHNICAL QUESTIONS, JUST WANTED SOME INPUT FROM YOU SEASONED MB OWNERS. WHY DOES THERE SEEM TO BE SUCH A RESISTENCE/HESITATION FOR BUYING A GREY MARKET CAR.

I HAVE ONE WHICH I AM TRYING TO SELL IN ORDER TO BY A NEWER MB. HOWEVER ANY INQUIRIES I GET THEY SEEM TO BE TURNED OFF BY THE FACT THAT IT'S GREY MARKET.

I REALIZE THAT PARTS MAY BE HARDER TO GET, BUT THERE OUT THERE THROUGH THE INTERNET AND THIS SITE.

MY CAR IS AN 82 280 SEL, EURO VERSION OF THE 380 SEL WITH A 6 INSTEAD OF 8 CYLINDER. IT LOOKS AND RUNS GREAT(THIS IS NOT AN AD) I HAD IT CHECKED OUT AND FOR A FEW $ IT COULD ALMOST BE LIKE BRAND NEW AGAIN. I LOOKED AT A LOT OF CARS FOR A LOT MORE MONEY THAT COULDN'T EVEN COMPARE TO THE ONE I BOUGHT.
THERE IS ONLY 124000 MILES ON A CAR THATS 20 YEARS OLD, THAT ONLY ABOUT 6000 MILES PER YEAR.

I CAME ACROSS A 88 420SEL, THAT IS MINT WITH LOW MILES AND I WANT TO BUY IT, BUT I DON'T SEEM TO BE HAVING ANY LUCK SELLING MINE. ANY THOUGHTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
