    I think these are the only cars where anyone would dare say it "only" has over 200k on the clock. I think the E46M is next ... another 1/2 million miler in the making (sans different ownership).

    Re: FS: 1993 Mercedes 500E immaculate $27k obo clean title

    I wouldn't exactly call that one immaculate. Looks like hand painted impact strips on the front bumper, no mats & crusty intake tubes. IMO first appearances are everything & you can bet that car needs ALL usual deffered maintenance taken care of to boot. (Is $5k figure for that not outdated by now!? I DIY & my parts bill is way over that alone). No mention of maintenance records either - does that mean is has none at all or the seller is too lazy to mention?

    Not good for $27k especially with the high miles. Sorry to sound somewhat harsh but just telling it as I see it.

    For 220kmi, it looks good. Very good, in fact. I've seen cars with <100k that looked far worse. I wouldn't label this one "immaculate" though. Better photos are needed, pictures taken at dusk in poor light are NOT useful. And, the all-important shot of the driver seat bolsters is missing.

    That said, I hope he gets that price or close to it. I was going to ask less for my '92 with 40k fewer miles and a near-total mechanical restoration (this black one seems to have better paint though, other than the front impact strip & bumper.)

    ^^^ car is not of the guy you speak 2 posts earlier. I believe he already sold his 500E some time ago to a MB specialist. Nice guy, met him at one of the local meets with his E55k.

    Car in the ad, I actually went to check it out a few weeks back, some guy in Elk Grove who at the end of the day has a nice hi mile driver, overly optimistic pricing. Lots of wear/tear. 12k car. Didn't see worthy to post about it, since the ad/price itself is laughable. Back to searching for my true desire, an Almandine 500E.

    The ebay auction listed in the post immediately before this one had a high bid of $13,790 and it had met reserve.

    BUT....

    The car is back on ebay due to non paying bidder, according to the seller.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/1993-Merced...pZl2PH&vxp=mtr

    Interesting side note... the "winning" bidder of the previous auction has placed bids on 23 ebay cars in the last 10 days. Including F-cars, P-cars, BMWs and Mercs. Which to me would indicate some sort of account breach or other illegitimate activity.
    The second highest bid was only $100 short of this scumbag's bid... is there not a way to do a second chance-type offer in these types of circumstances, within the ebay system? If there isn't, there should be.

    There is a "second chance" offer capability where the seller can offer the car to the 2nd highest bidder (possbly 3rd, etc). Seems odd the #2 person didn't bite, ditto if the seller was unwilling to come down $100 to make a sale.

    I smell shill.

    I could envision a group of independent dealers who place bids on each other's cars in order to first get the activity and then the price they want to get for the car. If no one bids above the shill, the auction ends and the seller says the "buyer" backed out.
