Hi. I've owned 2001 c220 cdi saloon for just over 3 years now and have been delighted with it (only had one problem which was a faulty MAF sensor). Still going very nicely with 'just' 115k on the clock. I was going to keep it another year or so, but the only problem is, it's just too small for our needs (3 kids, wife and camping gear etc don't fit easily) I'm considering reading up for an E class estate with the extra seats in the boot which would come in handy for transporting kids friends etc. A couple of questions. Firstly , is there anything particular I should be aware of/on the look out for when looking at E classes (common faults etc). And secondly, I could prob get together about £5k (£6k max) plus the sale from my current car. I would like to get a 2006 facelift model if at all pos, with less than 100,000 on the clock...is that realistic? Or maybe I would be just as good spending a bit less and going for something like an 03 or 04 plate? Any views most welcome Thanks.
