The price is $10,000 Cdn. I'm quite confident I can buy it for less than that. It is not cheap for a 240D, regardless of the mileage, so I'd definitely negotiate. If it was a 300CD or TD at $10,000, I'd have my cheque book ready even if the price was non-negotiable. The speed is not an issue. I have faster cars at my disposal though I rarely drive fast. I certainly would not drive the 240D on the Canadian highways though the speed limit is merely 100 km/h. The gasoline models like the 280 and 280E are much faster, but I can't find any around at this time. I believe the 240D does 0-100 km/h in 25 seconds. The 200D takes 33 seconds? That's as slow as a passenger bus. Damn, I wish I still live in Europe. I found two low mileage W123 coupes, a 230CE and 280CE, on eBay. I wonder how much they'll sell for... I'm just waiting for a North American to list a W123 coupe.
