    Hi everyone...I am a long time viewer and finally decided to jump in and try to acquire a 500E. I was curious to know if any one has any info on this car besides the listing. I did a VIN search on the forum and did not find anything else. Any thoughts on the issues visible from the pics?

    A few things which jump out:

    - Side indicators are aftermarket (easy to source and replace)
    - Mats are aftermarket (NLA I believe but MB gray rubber all season mats are available)
    - Center console passenger side looks like it is separating from the panel
    - Center console wood around shifter is cracked (can be fixed by Madera Concepts)
    - SLS reservoir looks yellowed and has some dirt which looks like a drip (reservoir is easily replaced but if the SLS fluid is being added it may indicate a leak)
    - Passenger side headlight wiper is an overachiever compared the driver's side (nothing a prison beat down couldn't fix)

    IMO, it looks cleaner than average inside, and pretty decent outside... although, I think I see some minor scrapes around the front passenger bumper/fender, and is that a dent in the rear to the left of the trunk badge? I see the usual chips/dings on the wiper trim panels, and maaaybe some chips on the front of the driver fender. Engine compartment is detailed nicely, but I'd want a batch of photos of the undercarriage if you aren't local. Few more items to add to Robert's list:

    Shift knob is aftermarket (no big deal)
    Subwoofer in rear parcel shelf (hope it was done properly, could be a good thing)
    Passenger door mirror boot may be shrunken / fossilized, can't see driver boot very well
    ASR Off switch (aftermarket) is a nice bonus
    Coolant overflow hose is cut off, which is weird (easy fix)

    Overall it looks clean in the photos, assuming the underside isn't brown. Price seems on the higher side but isn't obnoxious. Plan on the usual ±$5k of deferred maintenance unless the maintenance records have a whole pile of good news. If you're not tied to Pearl Black paint, and/or pre-facelift, I'd take a gander at the rare Anthracite Gray 1994 for sale in SoCal... or the silver one in Sunnyvale, if it's not sold.

    BTW, welcome to the forum!

    I agree that this one looks pretty clean inside.
    One more thing I noticed is that there is something seriously funky with the front spoiler.

    This is why I love this forum...the eagle eyed members are amazing at catching the issues from just the pictures. Thank you for the feedback as I plan to go see it this Saturday. I will report back once I see and drive the car. At the time I plan to review the underside.
