So did you buy it?

Im tempting Daniel with the Carnal delights of a Nice W116, Maybe a 280SE.

But wait, theres more!

No mate, you need to read, explore and post a bit more to move up a notch in Member status to see the rest of the forum.

Its just a basic form of ensuring that not just any tom, dick or harry can spam the for sale.

Will keep that in mind Joe. It might not be leather and instead MBtex, but colours the same and it is a manual 'se' here in Adelaide and very nice looking car. If owner wants to sell will be sure to let you know - plenty of manual s but not so many SE here.
