Yes, the price is surprising, given the condition and mileage of the car. The seller's description, whilst full of praise for the car, certainly does not equate to what is evident of the interior pictures, such as they are. Personally, I see no evidence of the car having been carefully maintained and looked after. I wouldn't mind seeing the condition of the front seats - also, just have a look at the condition of the boot of the car. Very badly lacking. My 450SE, in comparison, would run rings around this car in just about every respect. Regards Styria

Hi Tarek, one should also look at the "fit" of the boot rubber - if that is an indication of how the car has been looked after, it is a somewhat unsatisfactory outlook towards future ownership. Also the back seat - just look how dirty it is and, don't forget, pictures can be deceiving. Regards Styria

Hi GODFATHER , I hope you are well , i will refrain from posting photo for OPERATION BLU - you will not like the state the car on for now - but i promis you that i will change all defected parts , i want to make it look as when went out from the factory. plus i can't find here cars like in AUSTRALIA .
Since i'm busy with my Rote SAU ( RED PIG) i will wait for the w116 to be done next.

REGARDS

Come on Tarek.

We want to see pictures as it was and as it is being repaired as well as the final product.

I'll second that!!! Nothing more facinating than before, during and after pics! It also shows just how much work was involved.... I'm sure we've all seen some shockers in the past; some were miraculously repaired and others ended up being scrapped. It's all a test of the owner's resolve.... None of us care if your pride n joy is a concours car, or a rusted pile of nuts n bolts! It's all about the journey and having some fun in the process. And if it was easy, everyone would be doing it! ;)

Hi Tarek, my comments revolve around statemets and claims that are made when, quite clearly, the opposite appears to be evident. If the seller wouldn't claim "how terrific the car is, and how well it's been looked after", I wouldn't even comment. If you have a look at some of Gleaming Beauty's pictures that show the work that's been carried out, you'll realize that I am very well aware of a car's condition and that I have little hesitation in showing the various shortcomings or problems, and what has been done to rectify those problems. Thus, my comments do not relate to anyone that's restoring their car, and that of course includes your efforts. Regards Styria
