    FS: 1994 E500, Brilliant Silver/Black, 119Kkm, £30k (Leicestershire, UK)

    ADMIN EDIT: Price increased from £27k to £30k somewhere between original posting and spring 2017. Thread title updated with current £30k price.

    VIN: WDB1240361C179542

    This November 1994 example, first registered in January 1995 is a rare facelift late model E500 W124 endowed with a 5.0 litre V8 48 Valve engine producing 322 bhp & 480 N·m (354 lb·ft) of torque. (snip)

    This E500 was awarded a high 4B auction grade and is in fantastic condition outside,inside and underneath having recently arrived from Japan despite being manufactured in November 1994. Colour is striking silver,a great traditional Mercedes-Benz colour.Alloy wheels are desirable Evo2 items with near new Bridgestone 245/45 ZR17 tyres fitted all round.Alloys have been recently diamond cut by one of the best alloy wheel refinishers in the UK and are unmarked and perfect,better than new!

    Engine bay presents very well and is super clean,further evidence of a past caring owner,intake pipes have been recently renewed which is nice too see. The all important engine wiring loom has been renewed with the date code on the label.There are service labels on the car and engine oil upon arrival to the UK was a golden honey colour,an excellent sign of careful maintaince.The engine on this example is super smooth,the four speed autobox shifts smoothly and precisely,no transmission shunt and kicks down properly and drives straight and true,just how a really good E500 should do,a joy to drive!

    This unique E500 has recieved a very special suspension upgrade with the previous fastidious owner spending a huge amount upgrading the front shock absorbers and rear SLS self-levelling shock absorbers to E60 6.0L AMG W124 units,this is a very rare and desirable upgrade for an E500 with adjusted valving giving better body control over the stock units,we’ve never seen this before as the parts for this conversion are very expensive!! Part number decals on the fronts are (HWA 124 320 1530) and the rears are (HWA 124 320 0313) confirming these are genuine W124 E60 6.0L AMG items.

    Interior of this example is fantastic,the leather throughout is in superb condition,confirming this is a genuine low mileage car,it’s clearly evident this example has been kept out of direct sunlight and garaged by it’s previous owner,the rear seats look like they’ve never been sat in,one of the best condition E500 interiors we’ve seen! patina on the dashboard is excellent and this has been a non-smoker car,wood on this example is fantastic with no cracking and a deep shine.AMG white face clocks have been fitted.Headlining is in super condition free from dirt or sagging.Steering wheel is a lovely matching leather/wood item in fantastic near new condition featuring the adjustable reach option (441) not all E500’s have this. The interior of this example is a very nice place to be!

    It's never seen salt and always been driven on Japan's beautifully kept roads & has been owned by a mature driver (non-smoker) since new, garaged when not in use, so condition is as perfect as can be.

    Since arriving to the UK in Febuary 2016 this E500 has received our usual extensive service program to ensure the car runs perfectly for the new owner,belts fluids inc diff,autobox,engine oil+filter have been renewed with high quality Castrol/Mobil fluids and genuine Mercedes parts,Airfilters/pollen filters.Bosch spark plugs,distributor caps+rotors having all been renewed as part of our thorough and extensive service preparation. A new genuine Mercedes drivebelt has also been fitted.

    This example is the only one we have in stock in the UK and took months to find as we’re very selective about what we buy,we reject many cars! Late low mileage E500’s are becoming increasingly sort after by collectors all over the world and prices are on the rise. More pictures to follow soon!

    Now fully road registered in the UK,complete with an M’ registration number,12 months MOT and UK warranty this beautiful E500 awaits its new owner.

    Priced at £26795 this E500 represents a great investment opportunity and will be almost impossible to repeat with its desirable and expensive suspension upgrades.

    Interesting price. Its always difficult to judge "from a distance" so to speak, but I would hazard that the car is about £10k - £15k overpriced when compared with other E500E's for sale over here.

    Of course, some may feel the various "add-ons" the car has suffered while in Japan adds value; for others, this would be desecration!

    No sound system (no front door speakers)...? In 1994? Weird! The car appears to be in above-average condition, from the photos anyway.

    Is the spacing of the characters in the E500 badge correct? To me, there should be a slightly larger space between the "E" and the "500"?

    He means it's modified, not stock. Modifications of any type can increase value to certain buyers, and reduce value to other buyers.

    This particular example has relatively few mods compared to the typical Japanese-market cars. The steering wheel, stereo, and gauges should be relatively easy to convert back to stock if desired.

    E500 uk for sale....anyone viewed it?

    Hi guys.

    found this extremely useful forum while researching a 500e Mercedes, one of my all time dream cars. Not many/any in Ireland so I'll be making a trip to the uk to make a purchase.

    Anyway.....has anyone seen this car at jt autoclassics?


    http://www.jtautoclassics.com/page17.html


    it looks good, expensive but I want a good one.

    Cheers

    Hi Irish Guy !

    Sorry, can't help with this particular one. I believe JT Classics are in Leicestershire, so maybe a member of this board who lives near there could take a look? Might save you a journey?

    I'm sure you will have studied the Wiki section of this site - it contains a wealth of advice on what to look out for when buying an E500E.

    Its always difficult to judge a car without actually seeing it, but I'm sure other more knowledgeable members on this board will be able to make at least a partial judgement based on the pics provided. A quick glance at them shows the car has been "tampered" with, i.e. AMG shocks, etc. Also, I couldn't quite make out whether it had the correct headlamps? Anyone?

    At just under £30k, it is pricey, but if it truly is a sorted car, and the mileage etc. is genuine, then I would say it would be worth it - given what it costs now to bring a tired E500E up to spec.

    Good luck with your purchase!
