If they need replacement, it's a 3-400 dollar bargaining point, and if the seller does not want to pay for replacement and you do buy the car, get that fixed first. It's too nice an engine to waste if they fail.
Good call - I had to replace the oil cooler lines on my w108, but it wasn't that expensive.

I've been watching that listing, beutiful car but a little on the high side. But if its as good as it looks it's probably worth it. Good luck!
Thanks for the tip! Gave 'em a call. They do offer a pre-purchase inspection in the $150-200 range. Seems cheap compared to getting a lemon.

hey torre

I was bidding against you on that 84 300d on ebay. Crazy. I bid on it for my uncle. It is the exact car he wanted and it is in the same city he lives in. I'm glad that you found a cool car too.
