So here's my story: I'm taking a job in Spain and will be leaving the country around September for an undetermined length of time. I am not going to be advertising this car
in Autotrader/eBay/Craigslist or any of the regular channels...just thought I'd offer it up to the enthusiasts here if anyone wanted a stab at it. If not, I'll just keep it in storage until I return.
For those that don't know, the Grand Edition was a limited-run of 600 to commemorate the end of the W140 production line. The interior color/wood combo was exclusive to this model, as were the illuminated door sills and 'Grand Edition' floor mats, and 18' monoblock AMG sport wheels.
With just shy of 99,000 miles on the odo, it's been meticulously maintained its entire life. Naturally, full maintenance records are on hand as well as a current dealer inspection sheet certifying everything as up to snuff. The exterior has two small blemishes, one just above the windshield and one small indent on the trunk just to the right of the license plate. Neither are noticable unless you are looking for them. Everything in the car is stockCurrently it runs perfectly however there are two things any prospective buyer needs to know about. 1) the cupholders seem to be stuck in the center console. I haven't been able to fix this on my own. and 2) the rear window shade seems to be stuck in the 'up' position. I believe it's a fuse out since it's definitely lubed and not jamming, however because the pump is potentially about $800 to replace I'd certainly factor that into the price. The car is currently located outside of Charlotte, NC, however I am willing to personally deliver it just about anywhere in the country that's near an airport that is serviced by USAirways (I work for the airline so it's not a big deal for me to get home.)
