I honestly might be scared to show up to look at this car and not buy it. Might get capped.
Of course, this is probably owned by a 19 year-old white boy from the 'burbs.

I just emailed him---

Your a liar

Everyone who's an insider is once again rollin their eyes. 32 isnt even possible unless at a steady 35 mph. Peachparts and the other sites pretty much make it NOT a go deal to put lies off on people.
But im the same way as far a s looking for a newbie for the 81 cd i have--im just not gonna lie to them about it.

He's a member on benzworld, and STD. He has a much cooler job than flippin burgers. The car is gorgeous. I'd trade mine for it.

So, I guess he's joking about the 38 mpg?

One too many short-cuts for my money. I especially like the euro light fasteners. But that's coming from a guy who's been waiting for weeks for $10 fastener bolts to arrive from Germany . The red needles, weird screws in the console wood, and missing seat nets are deal breakers.

Paint looks nice though...
