    SOLD: 1992 500E, 199 Pearl Black/Black, 216kmi, $8000 (So. California)

    ADMIN UPDATE: Price reduced to $8000, see post 7 below for details. Threat title updated.

    This is my car. Yes it is a flipping project of mine. I did do some repairs on the car. I spent a solid 2-3 days detailing the paint alone. The previous owner had the car parked under a tree and it was covered in sap and bird droppings. My arm is still sore from clay barring 2 weeks ago. The car also would not pass ca smog until I bought it. I replaced the distributor caps and roto-rootered the clogged egr tube. I also replaced the DM Computer which was a real headache for the previous owner. They could not figure out why the cel was on and the fairly new Bosch battery (3/2016) was draining after a day or two of sitting. The DM took care of that. This car is far from perfect, and I'm sure there is more to replace that even I did not yet find as I do not plan to dig too deeply into it. That being said, the engine now runs very strongly, the ac and all electronics work, and it passed CA smog. Problems are (I believe) reflected in the price. This is a driver and a good entry level 500E for someone that wants to get behind the wheel of one at a lower price.

    VIN: WDBEA36E2NB756334

    Please contact me with any questions. Cheers!

    1992 Mercedes Benz 500E / E500 Black on Black Porsche W124 Sedan - $9500 (Riverside)

    Up for sale is my 1992 Mercedes Benz 500E. I won't waste your time explaining what makes these cars special, but I will tell you that I have owned four W124 cars over the last 11 years. This is my second 500E. If you have any questions about this car that the description below does not answer, I am very knowledgeable in these cars and would be happy to help. I will attempt to describe the car as best as I can.

    Most things work great on the car. The sunroof, electric windows, electric seats, rear headrests, seat warmers, rear sunshade, central locking, air conditioner and heater, etc all work as expected. The interior leather is probably 8/10. The headliner is sagging. The wood trim has the typical surface cracking. The steering wheel and some trim could use some attention, but overall, nothing is beyond repair. I was able to bring the Pearl Black paint back to a very nice shine over about 85-90% of the car, with some crazing on the roof and trunk excepted. There is also a small crack in the lower front bumper which is a clean break and easily repairable. Every inch of the car has been clay-barred, polished and waxed within the last week. Most of the paint feels like wet glass to the touch. Sadly though, there is some rust below right tail light, on the A-Pillars, and near the sun roof. Please refer to the photos.

    Within the last month, I have replaced the distributor caps, the high pressure fuel line and the diagnostic module (computer) to prepare the car for sale. The car passed California smog on 5/2/17 and I have the certificate in hand. CA title is in my name only and clean, no salvage or liens. Registration is current and paid through 3/24/18.

    Please note that the EVOII wheels pictured in a few shots are not included with the car and not available for purchase separately. The car is offered with the AMG 17" wheels pictured and I have the stock 16" 8 hole wheels available as well.


    I will not accept any offers over the phone, email or through text. So please do not send any. If you are genuinely interested, come see and drive the vehicle in person. Then we can talk.

    Mileage is 216,000.

    FYI... in the harness tag photos, ZD = the design/engineering date, and FD = manufacturing date.

    The upper harness in Justin's car was produced in 1999 and is is the updated type, so yes it has been replaced.

    Well we found a house to buy, and it does not have room for my 4 cars. For some reason the fiancée thinks I'm the bad guy for asking her to sell her 1.

    So I guess you could say I'm motivated.

    I am interested in the stock rims, if you want to sell those separately. My brother lives in San Diego and I could pick up.

    I finally collected the payment from western union. That was the first and last time I will ever use them, what a royal pain in the ass! Anyway, the money is in hand and the shipping company is on their way.

    The car is officially SOLD. Thanks for the interest.

    The buyer sent me a few photos of the car since he has the rust repaired and a full respray. Looks like he opted for monotone and painted over the chrome trim pieces as well.
