Default Mercedes question; purchase or pass??

found an 88 300se loaded with factory options. outside is in good shape.. interior could use a cleanup. anyway, it starts but needs a new battery and has over 150k miles on it. its got the inline 6 motor in it (non diesel). its $500.. the engine bay is spacious and everything looks easy to get to since its an inline 6

he says he just started it last week off a jump.. and I saw it today, its everything he said it was and was not. and he also said it had brake work done before he parked it about a year ago.

is it a good deal for 500? or would a be buying a heap of German poo?

$500 for any running car is good... but expect it to break down soon

Nice price but like said before it will break down (hope it doesnt) but chances are it might and fixing a benz is a bit pricey.

I'd buy it. My Uncle has been a Mercedes guy his whole life and I have seen these things go through some crazy things. His son (my cousin) had a 300 Diesel Turbo with like 290xxx miles on it and thing was still going with great gas mileage! (and he beat on it too). Someone rear-ended him and it got totalled or I bet he would still be driving it.

His mom (my aunt) had the same car, but non turbo and it had like 260000 miles on it and was still nice. My cousin also totalled this one lol but ya they're strong cars with long lasting motors. They barely maintained them too

For $500 buy it, drive it until it dies (which could be soon), and then sell it in peices for profit.

The headlights, brake booster, heater core, blower motor, etc.... are all worth over 100 bucks seperatley. OEM Parts from MB are very very expensive, and mercedes enthusiasts will often look on sites like CL for used parts before buying new. Hell, I sold a pair of headlights for $350. I would say go for it and see what happens. Those cars never cease to amaze me, even with gas engines.

I don't understand how people all the time sell cars "that need a battery". Put a fucking battery in the damn car and sell it. I see this all the time, are people that cheap?

It probably has more problems then a battery. It's way easier to just say "it just needs a battery".
