Selling my white 300TDT Wagon with a salvaged title but registered. NO SMOG! I bought a new car over the weekend and can't keep this one. It was a daily driver for me and I absolutely love it. Needs a good home!
The windows work and the climate control works but may need a recharge to blow cold, the heater needs a little work, probably related to needing to flush the coolant. Oil leaks are 99% fixed, I had the crankshaft seal replaced and a majority of them have gone away. Has a sun roof that works but needs lube (have parts). The locks have a vacuum leak and I bought the parts for that as well, see picture.
The interior is in great shape except the dash which has a lot of cracks in it, hence the dash cover. There is a small tear in the headliner where the sunroof handle is, other than that the headliner is in great condition. The seats are in great shape, the sheepskins are original to the car and have done a great job of protecting the seats.
I have the 300TDT badge I just took it off before it fell off. The paint is a respray after the driver side fender was replaced, which is why the title is salvaged. There are a few scratches and dents and some paint wear.
The back bumper was sprayed black by a previous owner, not sure why. I hear you can get it off with oven cleaner
All the trim is intact.
Needs rubber runner for passenger side gutter.
Needs headlight covers, the previous owner sprayed the grills grey.
Power windows work and all switches work as well
All exterior lights work.
Interior lights are mostly working except one side of the instrument cluster goes in and out occasionally
radio works as well as the antenna
Hazard light relay was replaced and works great.
The odometer and trip work
Tach needs and amp or replace with included 240D clock
front suspension needs work, not sure of the extent because it wasn't a project that was high up on my priority list
SLS seems to be functioning but may need some adjustment and some new accumulators but no leaks
transmission had a fluid/filter change and shifts well no problems in any gear, but could always use some vac adjustment.
engine is strong and has almost no leaks, I replaced the fabric injector lines and valve cover gasket recently. it had a valve adjustment a year a go.
turbo works well, I replaced the intake seals from the air cleaner to the intake of the turbo and it runs quietly and doesn't leak.
Coolant needs another flush, when I got the car I did an initial flush and had planned on flushing again.
Brakes are in good condition, just did rotors and pads on the rear.
With some additional work this could be an excellent car!
I have made a few repairs since I got it,
Front Crankshaft Seal - Last week
Rear Brakes and Rotors- Last Month
Front Drivers door seal - 3 Months ago
Transmission Fluid change - 2 Months ago
Oil Change - 2 months ago
Coolant change - 6 Months ago (needs it again by the way, I just flushed it once to get rid of the initial grime)
Coolant Expansion Tank - 6 Months ago
Fabric Injector Lines - 6 Months ago
Oil Pan Gasket - 3 Months ago
Valve Cover Gasket - 6 Months ago
Heater Monovalve repair- 6 months ago (heater still doesn't work but I will probably get to that and fix it)
Turbo intake seals- 3 months ago.
List of Parts included:
1 Passenger side front door seal
1 Front Sunroof Seal (they got paint on it when they resprayed)
1 Rear Sunroof Seal (they got paint on it when they resprayed)
1 set of sunroof brushes
1 Clock from a 240D to replace tach
1 lot of vacuum connectors (see pictures)
1 lot of assorted fuses
1 passenger side door vacuum actuator
1 driver side door striker
1 driver side mirror cover (the only missing interior component )
1 lot of vacuum hose
This is an AS-IS sale and the buyer is responsible for all shipping charges. I am confident that the car is lovely but it is old and needs additional work, which is why I have gone into considerable detail.
