I Must Make Ammends: 2004 Mercedes-Benz E500 W211

Janis Joplin had an interesting point when she sang screamedOh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?  My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.  Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,. So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?  A Benz has been the sign of having "made it" for decades, but even if you haven't "made it" you can certainly "fake it" with a cheap late model V8 Benz. Find this 2004 Mercedes-Benz E500 W211 offered for $4999 in Sugar Land, TX via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

Good morning and thanks for clicking on my post. If the posting is still up, YES the car is for sale and I welcome your call.
Originally ordered mid year 2004, this Alabaster white beauty is packed with every option available. Sport package, factory tinted "blue glass" , panaromic roof, premium sound, integrated phone, navigation, heated and cooled leather seats, keyless entry......….premium wood trim, power everything, rear air, upgraded wheels...I cant think of a thing the car needs or hasn't been recently gone thru !

Low mileage ( 90k_) , meticulously maintained, current on all scheduled maintenance, clean title history, never flooded, a stunning example of what a certified pre owned Mercedes should be. New battery, bi xenon head lights, brand new Yokahama tires, all books and records, even the original window sticker, factory navigation, integrated phone, premium wheels, panoramic roof......heated and cooled leather seats.....this car was the pinnacle of luxury when ordered ! Its an amazing car for the money ! Price listed is cash, I WILL NOT finance and not interested in trades. It is cross posted so PLEASE send me a PM and I will be more than happy to speak with you on the phone.

See a better way to drive something fancy?


  1. Heated & COOLED seats .. there it is!

  2. What I can't figure out is why the owner wants to sell it when it is such "perfect" vehicle? He does not say if it has the airmatic suspension which seems to fail around the 100K mile mark.

    1. Then again, how legitimate are (some) CL listings? Ever search YouTube for
      prior experiences?

  3. So many cars, so little timeApril 16, 2020 at 10:01 AM

    Didn't even know that MB carried on the coveted 500E/E500 designation from the W124 original. No Porsche collaboration on this one, presumably.
