    FS: 1993 500E Pearl Black/Black, 87kmi, $49k (San Marino, CA)

    Nice car.

    VIN = WDBEA36E8PB852360

    1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E

    One owner from new it's my observation vehicle could win a local or regional show. amazing details from new. vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws. but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. Clear title in hand.

    That car has been massively lowered, and the rear drop looks excessive... makes me wonder if there is an SLS delete. KONI front struts, sagging headliner, engine compartment doesn't show well... price seems optimistic compared to other recent listings/sales in the $50k ballpark. Maybe someone in the Bay area can go take a look in person and see what's up with the suspension.

    Also... it sounds like it is currently in the hands of owner #2, making it a 2-owner car, unless the original owner refers to themselves in the third person.

    Resulting in the broken front spoiler.

    It's also missing one of the spendy 500E decklid model badges

    The existence of the aftermarket audio stuff is questionable.
    Further, the amplifier rack is lame.

    1) Unfinished long bolts that stick out with open ended nuts.
    2) messy wiring.
