I'm new to this forum, and I just want to put up some pictures of my newly acquired 1993 500E. Although I picked the car up in Poland, this car came from Russia - Kaliningrad to be more presise.
The car was registered for the first time March 24th 1993 in Germany, and exported to Russia in 2010 in lieu of a w124 300 Diesel due to some strange import rules they used to have.
The color is 481 Bornit Metallic. It was repainted after it came to Russia. Seems like a very good repaint. It has some very minor faults (at least that I have found) - duo valves might be up for a clean, outside temperature display shows totally wrong temperature (too cold), and sometimes there is a flapping/clicking sound from under the dashboard.
It has a steering wheel, exhaust system and 19" rims from Brabus. 245/35-19 up front and 275/30-19 at the back. It also has a russian alarm system by the name of Sheriff 1070 - quite advanced, but I cannot find a manual in any other language than Russian
At the moment the car is on russian plates, put it will very soon be put on Norwegian plates.
