If a glow plug broke off already wouldnt it damage the cylinder, valves, turbo as it makes it's way out of the engine?

Hmmm, if the car was "clean" or in nice shape what should I expect to pay for it?

Makes me wonder how many times the owner was too busy to worry about topping off or changing the oil as well.

I'll stand by my "pass" personally.
I agree.

The "list" is extensive and shows the PO cared not a whit about his vehicle.

Therefore, I conclude that he never changed the oil in a timely manner. I'll bet that it still has all the factory fluids in the trans, brakes, power steering, radiator, diff. How can you conclude anything else?

Probably sounds like a well worn example. There are a billion W210's on the market, finding a good one shouldn't be hard.

Heck a place down the street from me is selling a pretty nice 1997 E420 with about the same miles as this car for $7,900. Its in much better shape.

About 17 miles from me. I am crazy considering it, especially since I am basing my price opinion on research I did two years prior when I purchased my 190D, but looking at ebay they seem to go for about $15K. 60K miles could probably be dumped on it and still worth 9K as long as nothing major goes wrong.
Yeah, I'd grab that sucker if you can. I think it's got a pretty good service history based on the report Blacksheep provided.

Good luck,
Nick

Not really. It would just be damn near impossible to remove without the head coming out.

There are plenty of 210s that are NOT diesels. Some 210s had 606 engines in them and others did not. An E320, for example is a gas engine AND a W210

I wouldn't buy a diesel W210. The premium people want for them is just crazy. I'd buy the exact same car, with less miles, and a gas V6, for $3k less, and eat the 3mpg difference. So what if they get slightly better mileage. When you have to remove the head to do the GP's there goes the savings.

Fwiw, the 95 I picked up with 220K for less than half his asking price of 12.5, was/is in better shape than this 98.

GPs are a PITA on these as the twin cam head makes them ultra long. Cant wait to pull my head for a rebuild. Someday, I;m sure.

I d say clean and in nice shape, 12.5K is right.

Sure, there are plenty of E320's, but this is a diesel forum. If I wanted to go gasser I would not limit myself to an E, or Benz.

I found one W210 on autotrader for $8,600, I called and it was sold (gee, wonder why), the owner said it had 156K miles and a turbo.
