Help - Thinking of buying 95 Cabriolet (320)

I'm looking at a 95 Cabriolet (320). Any specific areas on the car I should look at? I've read several threads that deal with the wire harness. When did this problem start and is there a way to determine if the harness has been replaced?

thanks for any help.

David

There was a break during the 1995 year when MB changed to a better harness. Check with a major dealer and they should be able to give you the particulars.

I have been very happy with my car. Bought it with about 60k miles in December 01. Only real repair I have done is the water pump - about $700. My car had excellent service records from one dealer here in Dallas. Service included replacing wiring harness under warranty. Look for oil leak around head/valve gasket at rear of engine on the passenger side.

I am considering an aftermarket warranty for about $2,000 as insurance against air conditioning failure repair. Also, you will probably find the stock audio equipment to be insufficient, especially with the top down. Mine came with a really nice aftermarket from the previous owner. Also, I got from him the original Becker radio and speakers unused and boxed up nice and neat in case a future owner wants to return the car to stock.

Check the tires out. I will never put anything but Michelins on mine. You will find that this is not a real great handling car. It is designed for cruising in a straight line, I guess. You will find at higwhay speeds, the car squats down and the ride firms up. Kind of an autobahn cruiser.

I would think you would be able to get this car with relatively low miles for around $30g's.

Thanks very much guys. It sounds like you have been happy with the yours. I have a 92 300E, and I was thinking about getting something sporty for my wife. Actually I'm kind of torn between giving her the 92 300E and getting a 90-92 SL or getting her something like the cab.

Anyway, thanks again for you input.
