I have a chance to buy a...

1993 300E with the M104 engine for $1,000 OBO i am offering him $750 worst comes to worst $850 , the problem is a possible fried wire harness, we have a mechanic who will get me a new wire harness for $680 and install it for me for free, i am going to help him install it so i would know later on. Inteiror is perfect, the car has good compress, has replaced every gasket in the engine, new fuel pump, no ARS cr@p and lots to other things today we are going to check the wire in the dash for any more fried wire. What do you think so should i go for it. If i do i have to sell my 300SD B/C there no more space left in the garage and my dad wont let me have 2 cars !!!!!

You could say that about practically any car (exclulding the 240 and 300D) in referencing "problems" versus the 300SD.

It could be used a source of parts for your recently purchased 1995 E320.

The 1993 300E has the same engine (M104), transmission (722.4), and chassis number (124.032) as your 1995 E320.

In the rest of the world, the 1993 300E was badged as a 320E, but Mercedes didn't decide to change the badge to E320 until 1994.

My point, exactly. I wish I had a 300SD. In fact, do you wanna trade for my 560?

Really??? I would do that, I done lots of repair in my 300SD, it has new injector nozzles, Control Arm Passenger side only, tire rod, sway bar bushing, tranny fluid and filter only mobil diesel oil USED, I do like a 560, anything wrong with it???

The 320E is my brothers not mine... I ll see how it goes, as far as the dash wires is still good, the miles is wrong it really 119K, though the wire that connects to the MAF is FRIED so that means theres other fired wires somewhere...

Well, it ran perfect until the fuel pump started giving out. I was planning on replacing it and then selling it for a 4-door W126. I honestly would consider it.
