He is still looking for one, I know that.

Ahh, someone better tell him about this. I know he doesn't like to buy sight unseen, but he really wants a red CE in Signal Rot, not Almandine. Price matters, and he is in no hurry, but he is definately looking, and a perfect red coupe would suit.

This one is Almandine, and it DOES supposedly have records, it might be close-enough-as-makes-no-difference.

late edit: he has been notified.

Good morning you guys.

I think I know why it has gone unsold.....

Must be the cool (or hot) red interiors!

Hattie, thanks for finding it. JimB thanks for the alert.

I told JimB in an e-mail that I think I've found a suitable replacement. It is a 1990 300CE. It is not signal red but it is in very good conditions, has low miles and a thick and complete set of service records since it was bought new at Beverly Hills Motor.

Enrique blessed the potential future purchase.

Let's see what happens!

The interior would just kill it for me also. Just seems to cheapen it a abit.

Excellent turn of events, but we need more details.

What color is it?

How did you find it? At a dealer's lot, or in a classified ad?

Any pics?

Nice 300CE Hat, but as others have said - that interior is horrid. I'd be driving around murmuring "redrum....redrum....redrum"...

Ernesto - let us know how it goes and don't forget the pics!

Good call, Ernesto...

Ah, the interior color. It was a common one in the big luxury American cars from the 70's and 80's, and with the "mouse fur" velour upholstery.

The Car magazines of that somewhat benighted time called it "Bordello Red" because it reminded the automotive journalists of whorehouse interior decor.

I wonder how they knew that.

The red interior would be a deal killer for me too, but who knows? It might come back in one day.

Look at the medium brown leather interior that was common in W126 and W123 cars in the 80's.

That color fell out of fashion for at least a decade, but it's definitely back in.

You can find brand new Audi's and BMW's with a saddle leather interior. I love it.
