    sure does look nice.
    im curious about those calipers having renntech painted on them.
    unfortunately, there is no customer pay data at any mercedes benz dealer for its whole life time.

    RENNtech used to sell an Alcon set for some crazy money. They were quoted for my car but the owner at the time passed. I think we’re talking $1500 back in ‘97.

    For this one, I’d say, if you’re in the market (1) make a call, then (2) book a flight to Maine.

    maw

    P.S. I'm sorry, that was $4,100 + 4 hours labor, in '99 for the Alcon 13" front brakes from RENNtech. No wonder he passed. That was the last thing they quoted for this car. Evidently, after having given them $10k over 2 years, he decided they were getting carried away with the brakes. Plus, he'd already done the One Lap of America on the stock Brembos, so there's an argument that he didn't need them.

    Maine is a special kinda place. Not an easy destination for air travelers.

    Might I suggest a drive?

    Through the EPC, anyone does. Also DataMB.com

    A few folks do have access to a database of all 500Es produced, using information privately compiled from EPC data into a single database.

    I have kept continual records since mid-2003 on 500Es that have come up for sale or have otherwise popped up online. This and my personal anecdotes and observations of them, along with screen shots of the eBay or web ads/auctions, forms my “personal database.”

    That’s 15 full years of record-keeping.

    When a car comes up for sale and is posted here, I often add to the thread the notes I made about it long ago in my personal database, as well as posting the PDFs of past auctions and such.

    It’s part of the historical record of each car that I have. Often they go through three and four and five owners over the years.

    I also track all cars that I find out are scrapped, wrecked and de-commissioned.

    I have records of dozens, but I'm sure there are plenty more that never see the light.

    I pulled a Carfax on the car.

    It's clean. Doesn't indicate any changes of ownership, but there have been several.

    Some additional information I can share:

    This is a consignment sale. The Dealer is Ray Ayers @ http://ayereuropeanauto.com

    Service records are available. Including invoices for the Renntech bits... CF airbox and brakes.

    The seller has taken and sent pics which I requested. Overall, he has been very responsive. He also furnished a copy of a recent PPI.

    I've invested a few hours into vetting this car. I'm 95% sure that this one isn't going to be "the one" for me. I don't want to publicly post anything which the seller has sent to me, but I will certainly share via PM my notes and thoughts about this particular car.

    In this market, and especially compared to others cars at this price point, I think it's probably a "Buy." But I don't think it's a screaming deal, especially given the location.

    I've spoken with Ray as well, and asked GSXR to post the pictures and documents he sent me. I think it's a screaming deal, actually. But reasonable minds can differ. He's got over a half dozen inquiries, if that's any indication. If you don't get it now, next time you see it, it'll be at least $10k more, is my guess. A couple of doctor owners after the original one who spent the RENNtech money, is what it sounds like. Last owner bought in '13, only took it to car shows. I told him I'd recount our conversation and post the stuff. He was ok with that.

    Thanks, Gerry and GSXR. These are what the Seller provided. Ace10 may have more. Seller says the car has never seen snow, etc. But it does look like some owner may live or have lived on or near dirt roads. I think someone is going to be happy with this one.

    Cheers,

    maw

    BTW, Ray also has a low miler over there (sub 30k) that he’s really high on. But he’s known this one longer. That’s all the news that’s fit to print.

    This car remains unsold. Three months on the market feels like a long time at this price/condition. Has anybody done additional investigation?

    In a couple of days the snow will be falling in Maine. lol
