    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Big fan of car and classic but the add is so poor and it honestly for 10k I could pick up a vgc c43, not that id rather one over a C36 but still. There are a couple c43 on car a d classic around that mark with a better provenance and considering this one seems the later interior I might as well...

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Seen Seen that one a while ago, will be hoping to see it after lockdown is lifted. High miles but you're right, nothing scary in the MOT history so worth a punt. Given the state of it tho I would be going low and hope since it's a PX I'd get it on the cheap. Can see at least 5k spend I...

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    In my experience the pre facelift models are much more solid. I would not mind having to replace the odd wing but I wouldn't want to be dealing with mounting points and floor pans etc.

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Whore away dude, love the interior! I must admit there is something about the cloth interior that makes it much more appealing to me over leather. The black/grey leather is just so dull, every car has it these days where as the funky cloth with checker board or herring bone (mine has black...

    I'm guessing import right? If so, would need to come with reliable history to verify millage and service records prior to being imported and thereafter

    Goo Good for you. You should therefore know the importance of finding a rust free example. It's daft to say they ALL have the tin worm blanket statement.

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    1. I asked for a pre facelift and I promptly explained I meant the interior. 2. I said ether would be fine but I take on board C36 might not have come in a wagon configuration, I am not the be all and end all of MB knowledge. 3. I've been driving pre 1996 MB's for more than a decade now and I...

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Apparently according to you there was no change except for the box. Clearly wrong as the entire interior was updated, down to the change in the seats from spring to foam. The interior bit is the bit I care about in this context, it might not be important to you but I care about it. I prefer the...

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Soz dude but like I said the interior changed to the W210 style from the W124/W201. I am after the early model before that happened hence the pre-facelift comment. If you want to be pedantic about it you could say there is a facelift C36 considering the interior update.

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    The add is very clear really, C36, no mention of rust in the MOT history and after a simple facelift misunderstanding; old style interior.

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    I guess the first question is; is it for sale?

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    If you haven't got anything to contribute buddy then why bother? There are rust free cars out there so long as you have a realistic budget. Sure, 4k will buy you a rusty old dog but 14k will get you a minter without rust issues. Like I said, currently swanning around in a completely rust free...

    W202 C36 Pre-Facelift wanted

    Perhaps I should have been more specific, some of the C36 came with the updated interior in line with W210. I am after the old style interior. I find the seats (spring rather than foam) more comfortable and the inside reminds me more of a W201. As for rust, if looked after well it need not take...
