I think you've posted photos of your instrument cluster and I don't recall the ASR warning lights.

I checked my W126 brochure for Aussie specs. Its a march 1989 brochure and it lists ASR as an option on the 300SE and SEL, but i've personally only ever seen it on 420s and 560s and most commonly on 560s. To be honest, I don't know why you would specify it on the 300 motor.

At least in the United states, it was standard on the 560 for 1991 model year.

Looking at some price lists for the german market, a 300SE base model was around 60,000DM, and a 560SEL was around 125,000DM. ASR is listed as a 2900DM option, so probably more appealing to the 560 buyer....

Thanks for that info Bryce.

My 1989 300SE did cost $130,000 when new.

Going back and looking at the pics of the cluster my car does not have ASR.

But the car does have SRS and ABS.

Sorry Tim, my post was in jest. Inferring that it doesn’t have enough power to spin the wheels. Your car does not have ASR . Sorry again for confusing you

This weeks car, a 280SE 3.5 W108

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mercedes...C/173016820968

Looks like a decent car. Price is not cheap, but probably not out of the range of one of these cars. Car is clearly not perfect but looks like a nice driver.

Hi Bryce I have seen that 280SE 3.5 on eBay not a bad looking car.

Maybe it’s just me but would painted hubcaps suit that car better than the alloys and is the paintwork a little dull?
