That's a steal and a beautiful car. I would buy that in a second if it wasn't on the other side of the country from me.

    Going out on a limb here, buuuut….. sat garages all of it’s life may be greatly overstated…..

    One thing cars guys looks for to prove the garaged or not is the thick yellow shading on the headlights… that does not happen in a garage… From the one photo and angle those headlights look pretty yellow, suggesting some outside life…

    I have a 300D with 178k on it… cool cars, get good fuel economy, not a race car, but nice riding…

    Why does it fail Ca emissions?

    Pretty sure the 283,000 miles didn't happen in the garage either, unless he has a really large treadmill. Yellowing of the lights can happen while driving.

    yeah definitely not, bluebook and every other car forum about this says it is far above a fair deal price wise/. notice how all he said is no accidents ? these cars need to be drove frequently and for long distances to keep them in tip top shape. they also need meticulous upkeep . youll spend the cost of this vehicle annually in maintenance costs most likely . not too mention unforeseen transmission issues at this point are almost guaranteed to arise ( could be cause for selling )
    the 4 years this sat not being driven are super likely to have caused this car some issues.

    Not really…. The majority of the time even with 283k they sit… sitting is where they yellow… those headlights are not a car that was kept in the garage for it’s life… period…. Unless the one photo and bad angle are deceiving….

    The car price isn’t bad, but it is non op in Ca, so it means airlines and/or transport costs added to the price of a 283k mile old car… These need constant valve adjustments, and other maintenance….

    It’s got potential, but don’t bullshit us about the “garage kept”…

    So the sun doesn't degrade the headlights while the car is moving outside, but will when it's parked outside?

    I'll keep this in mind, as long as I'm walking I won't get a sunburn.

    Why post just to shit on someone's ad?

    Duh! Don’t be a dumb ass… I posted both positive and negative… I was very complimentary about the car but called bullshit on the “garaged”.

    clearly sun degrades, but the bulk of degradation is setting in the sun.. many garaged cars with 283k would still have very clear lights… You obviously don’t know shit or your his buddy… 🖕

    Meant as “ always garaged when not used “..

    At 88 my dad fell & hit his head, DMV takes your license away when shit like that happens, until you can prove otherwise. It was time for him to stop driving anyway.

    He passed last week at 92, hence the car has been sitting non op since his fall.

    Truly… Sorry for your loss! So can it be licensed in Ca? Trying to help not hurt… If non op is because Of Ca emissions that’s one thing… if Non op means a Californian can buy and prove it’s a safe driver… Viola!

    Opens the local market for you… great cars!

    Yellowed headlights on a 23 year old car are an issue ? Jesus.
    Jesus you’re an idiot and incapable of reading a complex thought…. Yellow headlights on a 23 year old car that is “always garage kept”

    23 year old garage kept car will not be that yellow… it has spent some time setting outside, setting in a parking lot, or something out in the sun…

    Great car, wish I had the room. I had a Mercedes 190D (4cylinder with about 70hp) for many years. Great cars, always reliable, but can be expensive if you need a Mercedes part.
