New E 420 owner...Thnaks!!

Thanks to everyone for your guidance on purchasing an E420. I just drove home a silver/Graphite E420, 67k miles with all options but the rear sunshade. The same dealer that had the Black one with the broken cruise, switch, rust, etc got another one in on trade today.

This was a trade on a new s-class by a female doctor, original owner, all service records by the selling dealer. No rust, normal sized door dings, perfect interior. I scoured the car thoroughly, all it needs are brakes, tires and a light bulb. Everything works great and I can probably squeeze by for another month on the brakes and tires.

Because the car wasn't cleaned up and they would've had to do the brakes and tires I was able to get it for $14,500.

I've looked at more than 10 of these cars and only one was nicer than all but one that was priced $6k more. Thanks to everyone for helping me take my time to find the right one. This car is solid.

I'm sure that my next post will be about replacing the rotors.

Love my new Benz.

Congratulations... but...

you didn't mention what year is the car?

You remind me when i first got my 95 E420 and how clean it was with low mileage etc... these are very nice cars and you'll enjoy it a lot especially when cruising on the highway with that V8 engine. Stay tuned here as there are a lot of good advice on this forum for your car as well.

Any pictures??

Sorry about that. The car is a 1997 W210. I am stoked about it. I've now driven it 100 miles and so far no surprises.

Great choice

from what i have heard, 97 E420's are great cars as that was the last year for the E420 era. It has the new updated look etc.. have fun with it!

Nice Price!

I think you got one heck of a deal - considering that you have a known service history. Congratulations! Most dealers would sell that car for at or over $20k.

I'll post some pictures of the car next week. I've got to detail it over the weekend. Part of the deal was that the car was sold as is. The car wasn't even washed.
