s500 coupe pistonheads , cheap car or money pit?
couldnt find it with ref, more info please
MERCEDES S500 COUPE CL500 '95 154,000 miles£1,595
Might be THIS one.
Hope this helps
This is what is being referred to....
Mercedes-Benz : 1995 MERCEDES S500 COUPE (CL 500)
That is interesting...I have never seen a 1995 with the post update climate control. I had an 1996 S500 coupe that was halfway between the cars (effectively a series 2 but without side airbags or parking sensors) and that was an early 96 car.
so whats the opinion, cheap car or money pit?
If you get lucky and nothing goes wrong , it's a cheap car ....
If you are unlucky , a cheap CL can very quickly become a bad idea ....
Slightly OT , but i love this line in the advert ...
' NO CANVASSERS... IT IS ADVERTISED TO SELL ON HERE, I DON'T WANT YOU TO SELL IT FOR ME.... I WILL GET ANGRY WITH YOU ON THE PHONE. '
The CL600 is a money cavern - the CL500 is not quite the full money pit - but if anything electrical goes funky it can get a bit silly.
Sold my 95 S500 Coupe a few years back, 73000 miles, FSH, 3 owners, for £2300. Awful car, every time I fixed something, something else would go wrong...and the rust!! Perhaps mine was an exception, but my advice is Unless you are wanting one badly, walk away.
