    Looks nice in the pics.I like the OZ Superleggera wheels. They look a lot better on an E500E than I thought they would when perusing the Tirerack pics.

    This car could make somebody really happy. 226,000 miles isn't much after seeing how many miles are on Dr.P's/Glen's car. I know that Glen has put a lot of time and $$$ into it but look what he has in return for his enthusiasm.
    I think just about any E500E that has been maintained by regular services and / or an enthusiast could be around for a long time.

    I think the OZ wheels have spacers... don't recall them being available in an offset that would fill the fenders so much.

    Overall the car appears to be an ideal daily driver. Looks like it may need a headliner, but otherwise the interior looks very clean for the miles.

    Yes, I have H & R aluminum wheel spacers with longer lug nuts on the car. No rubbing issues at all.

    And yes, the headliner is slightly separated from the headboard - probably can just re-glue the material back on. It never bothered me and I don't even notice it anymore.

    Would you guys recommend this car for my 16 year old son? He loves mine and this would give him an early appreciation of the model, but not sure I want him to have the power this car has. Thoughts?

    If he is abnormally responsible for his age, and has displayed unusually good driving skills, maybe. I'd make him do a couple of Skip Barber type schools first before turning him loose with >300hp. (And also quietly install a cell jammer under the dash so his phone won't work, lol.)

    A late 300E/E320, or 400E/E420, would be a better choice for a new driver, IMO. With ASR, to keep them from swapping ends on wet pavement. 124's are safe, cheap, have ABS+airbags, yadda x3 for ±$2k... and you won't mind if it gets bent.

    I'd put him in a cheap 300E/400E for a year and tell him if he behaves himself, after a year or so he can make payments on buying the 500E from you at a reduced price. He'll have more appreciation for it if he earns it, especially if he has to invest some amount of $$$ to upgrade. Just my $0.02.

    That's good advice. How safe are these W124's? Are they better than say, a 2005 model?

    For a young driver, an e320 is plenty of fun, without too much power.
    400e.....still a little too much power for a youngster. My $0.025

    Good question. I am not sure about the safety factor between the W124 chassis and W211 chassis (2003-2009 E-class). My gut feel is the two are likely comparable, although the 124 lacks side airbags. You can see crash test data & videos on the IIHS.org website for the 211 chassis, but they don't go back to the 124 chassis. You can find 124 crash test videos on YouTube. I'd take either one over almost any "economy" car!

    The USA-spec gearing in the 400E helps calm it down a lot. If the young driver has a lead foot, the 300E would be a safer choice. If they rarely go past half-throttle, the 400E is pretty tame thanks to those 2.24 granny gears.

    I once HAD a beautiful 1994 E320 wagon. . . before my kids started driving.
    The oldest girl took out the rear bumper, front bumper, left headlight, ran over a tire and pushed the radiator and surrounding components rearward, and backed into a truck causing damage to the wagon and the truck she impacted
    .
    That old Merc is still running great with 270k on the clock, but she is no longer very pretty.

    My conclusion: Do your best to keep the kids away from the collectibles.

    Quick update: fixed the radio antenna - it works again. Car is still available. The car was smogged close to 90 days ago, so I 'm going to have to re smog - does anyone knows if a California smog inspection is needed if someone outside of California buys and registers the car?

    The smog test would have to be in whatever state the car will be registered. I doubt if any state will accept another states smog certificate even if it's more stringent.

    Everbody want's all of the blanks filled in, the t's crossed and the i's dotted on their forms.
