Great comfort! Great power! Great quality! Great car!
Bent steering damper caused by previous owner. (fixed immediately due to horrible rubbing noise while turning).
Leaking steering pump. (not a priority at the moment).
Brake pad wear sensors needed replacing (cheap and easy fix).
Love this car. I purchased it because I looked on this site and read the great reviews, knew what to look for as far as maintenance (wiring harness replacement), and picked one up dirt cheap from a fellow car lover. So far I spent $100 and that replaced my steering damper, and I had the technician swap my brake pad sensors while he was down there. Could have done that myself, but why bother. I'm going to school to be an auto technician, and I'm sure I'll be needing to replace some more important stuff at some point.
Anyway, compared to my last vehicle (Dodge), this is a dream car. Actually, it's just a dream car anyway. Great interior quality, and this thing is a tank. The ride is extremely comfortable, and yet it still handles like it was meant for cruising around 130mph (autobahn of course). I have also owned 2 Nissans and an Infiniti and loved them. This is also on my list of favorites. :) Can't wait to do a few classy modifications to it.
The 94-95 tail lights have been installed. I also want to get the front turn signals from that year and add the euro-spec headlights, because the us-spec headlights are so dim. Might also add some hid's into the new headlights, but not sure yet. The previous owner added a CD player, but I don't like how it looks (silver face that doesn't match the car), so I'm going to add my Clarion head unit (black) that looks much better and seems to be better quality. That's all I really want to do it for now. Might get some AMG wheels as a spare set.
Anyway, I love my 1993 400E, and I thank those that have given their reviews on this website for submitting their reviews. They really helped me to get behind the wheel of this great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
