Jason,

Yikes! I would agree that you should get a second opinion. It seems to me that you could get that done for around $2000.

As mentioned, you could look for a wrecked one and swap engines.

It's ironic, when I mentioned recently about me looking at a 420, you messaged me that your car was going strong. I hope that didn't jinx you.

There are alot of good cars out there for under $15K. My theory is, the less you spend,the less you loose. The trick seems to be, trading out before something big fails. There are a ton of good S Class Mercedes out there betwwen $5-10K.

Your situation is why I'm being so cautious. After reading your post, I think I might know why the 380SE I looked at idled rough.

We just need to be careful.Good luck.
