Can't believe this thread is still going. Now that it has been hopelessly 'jacked I'll jump in again with $.02 on the SEL for the benefit of Mr Keller. Nice color but I can see the rust creeping out on the rear wheel well. Looks decent right now but won't for long especially in your neck of the woods. If you are into the look of that chassis then I would suggest you find a 300SD. You get the exact same car but with much much less potential for the lightening of the pocketbook that is inevitable with these cars in general and especially so with the older 450/560 cars. Unless you are anti diesel the SD will be exponentially more reliable and less costly but you do have to make sure it is healthy compression wise out your way. Wouldn't want it for a daily in February out there. I own and work on quite a few of these cars, the gassers and diesels. The best you can hope for as far as start-ability goes in the winter with the diesels is around zero degrees without being plugged in and you better have a very healthy battery, good connections and all glowplugs functional as well as good compression and 5w40 synthetic to start at those temps without the block heater.
