    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    Ahhh, the saga continues. This is proving to be a great place to vent, wittering, on my part, shall now commence.... The seller has now admitted that the car goes in to limp home mode when you floor it. That's the actual issue. So now he has said that if I don't commit to buying it then he...

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    He's removed the link to the ad' on the basis that I've bought it! Im pretty sure it's a V6, the cover had a silver V on it. I'll check with the garage that are doing the work.

    Thanks @MrGreedy, that is sound advice indeed. I'll ask if they can do that at my cost. 👍

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    Ah, I was replying and hadn't seen your second post. The swirl flap control modules that's the one!

    The seal has apparently failed and allowed soot/oil to drop on to the control module and frazzle it. Is that a more significant job?

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    I thought a quick update was in order. I received a call from the seller (as I was setting off to collect it) and he let me know that it had a problem. He left it with a specialist and they've diagnosed the turbo inlet seal as the likely culprit and quoted £700 to fix it. Now, firstly, I was...

    I bought it! The seller was landed gentry and an absolute gent. There are invoices for thousands. Thanks for listening to my wittering and all your advice. Photos to follow....

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    Thanks folks, to answer a few of you asking the year and mileage, it's a 2005 on 120k. With the full Merc' history I'm expecting to see it having been replaced but time will tell. Appointment booked for tomorrow morning

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    That's a long list of potential heartache.... I'd planned to buy a used sbc pump, have it refurbished and leave it on standby, if the pump hasn't already been done. Should I be looking for a yellow sticker to prove it's been replaced? I saw the link to the number/date and have a screencap ready...

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    Is that an issue? The gearbox? Hmmm, I'll see what the history is like and may well do just that, thanks Gollom!

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    @W1ghty...I would usually share the link gladly but I'm like a terrified little girl sharing links, since last year, when, I was ready to buy a childhood hero car (Audi UR Quattro 20v), asked a question on a forum, sent a link and some absolute #!@*! saw it and got there 30 minutes before me and...

    211 E320 CDi 2005. Should I?

    I'm off to see an e320cdi estate on Sunday and I've read horror stories about the slc pump and the injectors (I've been told that this problem manifests itself as a parafin smell in the car when driving),which have made me nervous. The car has full Mercedes history, the seller has owned it 10...
