Yeah, I've been spending more time over at Gerryboard. I'm not doing much besides M119 stuff these days.

Too many cars? There's no such thing! LOL. I'll check out that other thread you linked to as well...

Just updating: The buyer has gone quiet, but I've decided to take the 300TE off the market for a short period.

The roads here in AZ are pretty flat, but after a long road trip to pick up my new 2016 Audi Allroad, I realized how fortunate we are here. I just no longer feel comfortable selling the wagon as-is with a concern about a tire blowout with the worn front shocks. Some of the dips, potholes and condition of roads in middle america is frankly appalling.

With that said, I've decided I am going to purchase some new Bilstein HD front shocks, install them, and then price of the 300TE will increase to $2800. I think I may have been undervaluing the car to begin with, and this price increase covers the part cost of shocks plus a small labor charge for myself.

Currently looking for an W164 ML for my mother and it disgusts me what people do to their cars..not spend a dime then try to sell it off as "excellent" with obvious dealbreaker issues. I just can't do that myself ethically.

Glad to see you're keeping her, at least for the near term. $2500 is an awesome deal! I really want another wagon, and regret having to get rid of my mine. If I didn't make myself (and the wife) a promise to only get a 911 Turbo for my next car, I'd be all over this!
