    560 SEC Widebody, 500E, Hammer and SL70/73

    There are a couple of B12 owners on the Alpinaregister.com Might be worth trying there if you haven't already.

    W212 E63 6.2

    That is going to limit your choice quite a lot! I'm not that keen on silver cars but seem to have 2 amg estates on the drive and they are both silver!

    £20k E55

    No parking sensors, which is odd. Looks nice, well detailed certainly but the drivers seat has seen some wear and not that well kept for an exemplary example. I think they'll be very lucky at that price, £12-15 maybe.

    E55k Estate 30k miles

    Ha reminds me of a patient a good few years ago. She came in one day with a really nasty looking burn on one calf. I asked and she regaled a story of getting out of her new boyfriend's Caterham 7, only he didn't mention it had side exhausts... needless to say not her boyfriend after that. It did...

    Cars that you have owned, and had high hopes for but moved on because you didn't like or get on with, for a particular reason?

    Rather incredibly this I really wanted one, got a decent deal and a decent car, not in grey scale and it went like a rocket with a 500bhp Manthey remap. But it wasn't at all practical (despite what they say), the alarm drove me mad, I was terrified of the carbon ceramic brakes and it did...

    S212 E63 Kleeman wagon....

    I have to say I quite like it. I seem to be a sucker for high mileage cars (I've got 5 and only 1 is under 100k, 1 is over 200 and one is approaching 300!) but that doesn't make them bad cars. In a different place or even if it was a bit closer I might take a look, but there and waay up north...

    CLS 63 EDITION 1

    From the sublime to the ridiculous as you say. Is there something about rying to buy a car from this central northern belt? There seem to be a lot of slightly iffy places. I'm sure that's a huge generalisation but for us southerners it's a lot of what you hear! How can you tell/do you know? As...

    CLS 63 EDITION 1

    That puts a slightly different spin on things. A bit leggy but noticeably cheaper than the other one. Thanks for the steer.

    Another S211 E55...mega money

    Really? 11 is high (the one at 9.5 hasn't sold) but it's worth a bit more than that don't you think?

    m113 oil level

    I didn't know that was even an option. Is there actually an aperture for it?

    m113 oil level

    Our c55 has said a couple of times to add a litre of oil at the next chance. However when I check the oil level it says it's fine. Using the "hidden" menu it is saying 7.1 l which to my mind is a bit low as reading suggests 8-8.5l. Anyone got a more definitive answer? Thanks

    CLS 63 EDITION 1

    Thanks. There is a ed 1 for sale too but there's not a great deal for me and my e55 needs a little bit of prep to get to be ready for private sale. Letting it go for what's been offered seems a bit of a waste. I might reconsider in the new year.

    CLS 63 EDITION 1

    All FL cls (estates anyway) are S versions, and that bit more expensive. Frankly another 30bhp isn't all that but I think they do get an LSD as standard which is.

    CLS 63 EDITION 1

    It doesn't look like very much extra but I've found 3 now, all the same so it does seem to be a real "thing". There's one on here from a member who has since vanished. https://forums.mbclub.co.uk/threads/new-cls63-shooting-brake-owner.239711/page-2#post-2643543 ETA and another (actually this is...

    Definitely was, Romans sold one a while back https://www.romansofstalbans.co.uk/stock/mercedes-benz/cls-63-amg-shooting-brake-edition-1/1666 I didn't realise it was MB wide and used on various models. It seems to be a ltd edition from a new model roll out to part those who want a bit more...
