2002 Mercedes-Benz E430 with 46,000 miles

A little over a month ago I checked out a 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320 with an amazing 18,200 miles on it. I personally wasn’t so amazed by it because it was an average as a car gets. Yes, it was clean, but it didn’t have many options at all and actually had a few issues. Today, I have another W210 E-Class with low miles, but this one is the V8 E430. This E-Class with a little under 48,000 miles checks in from Costa Mesa, California but again, I’m not blown away with it for some reason. Maybe it’s just the terrible color again?

Like the E320 from a month ago, low mileage doesn’t automatically mean ideal condition. This car suffers from the dreaded burnt out pixels on the gauge cluster that is oh so common. Another thing is that this car wasn’t even optioned with heated seats. It just seems crazy to me that even in 2002, you had to pay extra for heated seats in a V8 E-Class that you are already paying over $50,000 for. Other than those two little things and the extremely boring color combination of tan and beige, this one looks as it should.

There is no way that I can justify paying $16,000 for this car. That kind of money can buy you a nice E55 and have enough money left to buy a half-decent E320. I don’t know where they came up with that price but I’m just not seeing it at all. The W210 E430 just kind of hangs out there kind of like the W124 400E/E420 did and just now as they starting to creep up in price. Will the same thing happen with these? I wouldn’t bet on it. These don’t have the same feel and charm as the W124 just because of what the W210 is. Spend $16,000 on a E55 with 46,000 miles? Good buy for now and the long-term. Spend $16,000 on this car in tan and doesn’t even have heated seats? No way.

    Why on earth you would want heated seats in California is beyond me

    Desert silver and java is indeed THE worst and most boring MBZ color combo. Heated seats in a luxury car is a must for me even here in So. Cal. It just feels good when it’s 5°C outside in the morning.

    A couple of comments…

    Not all of California is warm and sunny. Nor do cars stay in California. Heated seats are a requirement if I were to purchase a car.

    #2 – “I have personally driven and inspected this truck and it starts up right away, runs, drives and sounds amazing. ” – Truck? Really? Makes me wonder about all the rest of the details in the auction as being correct and valid.

    The price is indeed ridiculous.
    But as far as the color goes, I’d rather have this combo than say black on black.

    Next time it’s 19 F here at my non-alpine, yet still CA, home, I’ll be glad to fire up the heated seats.
