I'm selling my 1992 MB 500e with 165,000 miles. I've put 70,000 miles on this car as a daily driver and it is rock-solid, and very fast.
Charcoal metallic with Black Interior, upgraded sound system, 17" wheels and autobahn power make it a pleasure to drive on trips.
Good rubber all around. Recent major service completed and many service records available.

Before there were AMGs, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche built the 500e!
See this link if you aren't familiar with the 500E. It is a good story for car buffs.

Has anyone actually seen this car in person? I'm interested, but on the other side of the country. Seems like a reasonable asking price for a higher mileage car, but looks like the front end has some dings to the paint and is missing wipers on the headlights. Anyone see anything else that seems out of place or amiss?

This would be my first 500e, so I'm also a little wary of such a high mileage car. Anything I can expect to fail that should be specifically looked at apart from the wiring harness? Seller says the MAS has been replaced as well as water pumps and distributors. He has service records for the past 5yrs or so.

Would appreciate any help or advice as I start thinking about getting a pre-purchase inspection completed on the car.
