Hi All, Been a long time since I was last on here researching Mercedes Benz. Always had a soft spot for the big 80's Merc's but never got around to getting one. However, I've just been offered a 500SEC for £1500 and I'm sorely tempted! It's silver, with a few patches of bubbling paintwork around the arches, but inside she's as clean as could be. Done 117kmiles, which I assume is nothing to a car like this and had a lot of money spent on her recently including new radiator and other stuff I cant remember. I'd only use it as an occasional car (already have a modern daily driver and a old BMW Cab for the summer), so would insure it on a limited mileage policy (I'm old with no claims etc., so should be relatively cheap). Anyway, down to the reason I'm posting on here. I'm looking for views on whether this is a worthwhile purchase or likely to be a money pit (already have too many of those!). I know the fuel costs would be high, but what about reliability? Are parts expensive? What's your view on the 500SEC?
