Drove by a dealership today near my house (Portland, Oregon). Saw silver '93 300CE w/69K miles listed for $25K. Salesman as much as told me I could get it for under $20. I don't need one. I have my E420. Just passing on the info for anyone interested. Gorgeous car. --Mitch

Still high!

Mitch,

Should sell for $18,500 tops if in excellent condition and with chromes, CD, slip, etc.

I'm a sucker for an MB coupe! Just look below!

More info from dealer

Went and checked it out today. Seem to be several "issues":

1. It has sportline badges, but only 15" wheels. I thought all sportlines had 16's.

2. Only 69K miles, but seems to be a lot of wear. Rubber door seals don't look so good; thermometer doesn't work; sunroof works, but closes slowly; several small fissures/ cracks in wood throughout interior; leather cracking on center console lid; POS H-rated no-name tires; much smaller battery than stock; small dent in hood (that could easily be fixed).

3. Had them check history. Looks like car has been sold at auction 4-5 times (poor car--what a waste!)

4. Asking $25K. I interpreted a little dealer sticker code to mean they would "settle" for $23.9. I told the guy it needed a lot of work, pointed out problems, etc. Sales manager said bottom line they had to get $17.6. BTW, this is a Dodge dealer--they bought car at auction, and are shipping it down to California on Thursday to sell to some more, unsuspecting schmuck down there. ANY THOUGHTS???
TIA, Mitch.

Price is going down fast!

Mitch,

1. Don't think so. Had a Sportline and it had 15" wheels. The "E" class has 15" wheels. But the Sportline's ride like a truck (for my taste)!

2. With lots of wear; rubber door seals are bad ($50); thermometer doesn't work ($17); sunroof works, but closes slowly (maybe just a lube); several small fissures/ cracks in wood throughout interior (that's harder to fix!); leather cracking on center console lid (ditto!); POS H-rated no-name tires ($650 for Michelins); much smaller battery than stock ($100); small dent in hood (place in SD, CA fixes for $75 if paint ok). The price is dropping fast!

3. History shows car has been sold at auction 4-5 times makes it a tough buy. (very tough buy; more $$ deducted!)

Did you look for leaks. The 3L and 3.2L are famous for leaks from the front seals and possibly the main seals. If so, there's another $800+ to fix.

Also does it have a CD player, phone, chromes, premiums sound?

Bottom line: Minus the goodies above, it's worth around $15,100. With the goodies, and put into "Very Good/Excellent" condition, about $19,000.

That's the way I see it!

If someone did not take care of it, you don't want it. You can buy them all day long with service records in mint shape for $20k. I would rather pay the extra $3k for the piece of mind that miles are true and car is maintained.
