The paint presents very well. It was repainted in 2002 with a base coat clear coat. The body panels are all straight and line up well. I did not find any filler when I went over the vehicle with a magnet. The bumpers are in good shape and do not appear to have ever been hit. The glass in the vehicle is complete and in good shape but there was a rock chip in the windshield that was professionally repaired. The lenses on the car are complete but the left front headlight does have a rock chip in it as well. The left front rim has some chrome peeling off of the lip (pictured). Both left side rims have the beginnings of the chrome peeling as well but is very minimal.
The interior is in good shape. The front seats do have some separation at the seams on the bottom section. The back rests are in good shape. The rear seats are in nice shape and show little wear. The carpets are clean and in good condition as well. Floor mats were used to prevent wear on the carpet. The headliner is in decent shape and does have a couple of spots that may clean up. The door panels are in nice shape. The dash in in good shape and does not have any cracks on it. The wood grain accents are nice but the piece around the shifter does have some cracks.
The engine fires right up and idles nicely. It drives down the road well and the transmission shifts as it should. It just passed the California emissions test and has a current smog certificate. All of the lights functions correctly as do the gauges in the dash including the clock. The tape player works as it should. The AC blows cold and has been updated to R-134. The sunroof works as it should.
This Mercedes 500SEC is a great looking coupe that you don''t see every day. It has been well maintained with receipts for work done from 2002 to present.
