I don't know the car in question, but $10k for a decent 300CD doesn't strike me as outrageous. After all, they were awesome two-door coupes, often equipped with manual transmissions, and a legendary Mercedes diesel engine. Having previously owned a WVO-converted Mercedes (W210), I was curious enough that I did a quickie search before throwing out an unsupported opinion...

Consider that there are three buy-it-now 300CD listings currently on eBay: one for $6500, one for $14,950, and a third for $29,995. Two others are in auction format -- one with a starting bid of $5500 and another starting at $12,000. That's an average price of just under $14k. Knock out the highest and lowest data points, and the average ask is a bit over $11k. Seems to me like a $10k price is right in the middle of the pack. The idea that it's "two or three times" too much is simply uninformed; you could easily part the car out for more than $3500.

Of course, whether a grease conversion is a pro or con is an entirely separate conversation. But no one asked!

Cheers, John

It's really not necessary to post the same reply in two different areas, dukegrad98. I did reply to kitesailor's post in more than one place, but at least I didn't simply cut-and-paste each time.
