Mercedes Benz E320 Sportline Convertible

 By: @lberti : May 8th, 2021-08:36
I am having this car for quite a while in my radar. I was able to locate one in mint condition with below 100k km and all services done on time. 1 previous owner since purchase in 1996. Price around 36k usd. What do you guys think of the car overall, qual...  

Have owned the corresponding Mercedes Benz E320 Coupe since 2013 and it has made for a great regular driver!

 By: trs : May 8th, 2021-09:13
Bought the Coupe with 60k km from an old lady who was the first owner and put on an additional 115k km over 8 years no problem at all. The only non ordinary maintenance issue has been the windshield wiper motor that failed twice and is expensive to replac... 

Thank you very much trs for the valuable input.

Body rust seems not to be a problem on this car. Was driven during nice weather only. I am not sure how true this is, but inwas once told that Mercedes has the cheapest parts of most of all car makers. It seems to be their philosophy to keep the cars on t... 

Without having seen the car all I can say is that where I live in Germany the E320 Convertibles worth looking at start at around USD 30k / EUR 25k.

If you want a really nice one with less than 100k km you will likely end up paying EUR 30k.

Good point.

I fully agree with you Nico.

 By: @lberti : May 8th, 2021-10:07
Great to hear you like the car. With regards to the price, this is the price listed and only have seen the car once and would need to take my brother with me for a mechanical check up (he is a mechanic). After his ok will go into the price discussion. Bei...

And fantastic classic benz design, one of my favorites for sure, Congrats!

Thanks Salman.

Have not decided yet. Will only be bought if no rust and technically on mint condition. Need to do some checkups first. Looks good though😎

I can’t comment on this one specifically...

 By: Esharp : May 8th, 2021-11:15
I’ll let the other more knowledgeable people here advise on price. But setting that aside, those E-series convertibles were, and are, an absolute classic to my eyes. Clean design, a perfect boulevardier. So, if you’re happy with the price and model, go fo... 

Thanks comment. I like the word "boulevardier" in combination with the watch.

I keep my eyes open for the 300 ce24, but pls dont expect me to HK. 😎

There’s some shop in Japan

 By: Esharp : May 8th, 2021-12:13
...which is rebuilding that generation of E-class wagons. Now, I haven’t felt the need to own a car since 2004 (!)...but if I were so minded and some devotees like them were rebuilding these cabrios, I’d be very tempted! Looking forward to a time when I c... 

Japanese are crazy with old mercedes.

 By: @lberti : May 8th, 2021-12:27
There is even a "white mercedes club" in JP.

Fine choice

 By: JLCman : May 8th, 2021-15:14
One of the best four seater convertibles of all times. And one of the last high quality Mercedes Benz cars ;-)

Yep 😎😋

A perfect car, I owned one and love it and more when I got a twin-turbo conversion together with all needed modifications

 By: PoyFR : May 8th, 2021-16:29
The all conversion was carried out (Engine, Radiator, Gearbox, Steering Column, Chassis, Exhaust, Suspensions, Tires), by Mercedes specialists at Hughes in Beaconsfield UK It was a flying machine, comfortable, fast and safe as well as not one single issue... 

You put a twin turbo on an E320 Convertible? 😎😁

 By: @lberti : May 8th, 2021-18:25
The car in discussion is a SPORTLINE and fully packed, incl Memory Seats, and and and..... even CD changer. If i get it, it will remain original and clean. Only thing it needs is a good clean up and a color polish.

No doubts same car W124 E320 Convertible

 By: PoyFR : May 8th, 2021-18:59
The all conversion was carried out by Mercedes as explained above. Before this convertible I had the coupe 2 doors and before I had the same version but E280 We are talking about the very same model 😉

And what was the outcome in fugures? HP, Nm, Speed, 0-100 kmh?

 By: @lberti : May 8th, 2021-20:50
You had a nice history with this car! Did you also modify the suspension?

It was a perfect and reliable car thanks to the appointed specialists very high level of competencies

 By: PoyFR : May 9th, 2021-06:38
All the works were carried by an official Mercedes dealer appointed for those very special conversions. Otherwise I would have never considered modifying a single bolt. Afterwards that car drove like in a dream and was trouble-free I can't remember precis...
