    E Class estates dimensions - longer and lower

    We had a 211 and then a 212 estate and i was interested to learn that the boot on the 213 is a bit smaller, despite the length of the car increasing. Dimensions attached for 213, 212, 211. I couldn't find the 210 dimensions but my guess is that the boot is shorter but taller sill, with a flat...

    S211 E500 how many estates amongst those 500 E500's ?

    Someone has told me that there are only about 20 Estate versions of the E500 in the UK. (S211 E500) Can anyone confirm this? I see that there are just under 500 E500's on www.howmanyleft.co.uk, but clearly by far the majority of these are saloons. I'm being nagged to sell my 2004 E500...

    09 W204 Vs 2012 Passat Estates

    Just pondering future car purchases, I've had Mercedes for the past 13 years, always slightly older models. My GF had a brand new Vx Zafira and the build quality was poor compared to my older, probably 4/5 times cheaper Mercedes. I am maybe looking at a car change in the next 12 months or so...

    How Many E500 Estates in the UK?

    Howmanyleft.co.uk tells me that there are only 140 E500 Elegance cars in the UK - but doesn't tell me the saloon / estate split. I would guess that 1 in 7 might be an estate. Which would make it only 20 estates in the UK. Can this really be true? Anyone know how I could find out?

    W124 estates

    Hello, I'm normally a VW Audi man,but today I went to see a 7 seater W124 estate. I have always liked big Mercs. I have read the guidance on here (great advice)and the body was very sound, but the engine (M606 multivalve 3.0D non turbo) had a lot of leaks on it, so I didn't buy it (as I...

    Pair of W124 E300 D Estates in Silver

    The love affair had to come to an end. The kids are all grown up, no more trips up and down the motorway dropping off and collecting them. Finally found a job locally so no more weekly trips down to London. I have been driving W124’s for the last 10 years. I will now be on the lookout for a...

    Looking at W203 estates

    Following the demise of my W124 , I started thinking about a replacement . My first thought was another W124 estate , but I soon realised that good ones are thin on the ground , besides that I only need estate capability occasionally and I want something reasonably cheap to run , so a smaller...

    BBC article about fast estates

    BBC News - 'School run supercars' Not the article I was expecting at all when I saw the headline. I thought it was going to be a load of Prius-driving Mumsnetters imploring us to 'Think about the children'. But no, it seems there's this new phenomenon of luxury executive cars that are quite...

    The value of 124 estates

    Hi all. I am seriously thinking of buying an S124 as a daily driver. Trawling the internet brings up quite a few cars, but many can be dismissed on the gounds of spec or condition. I am looking for a 6 cylinder or a diesel out of personal choice, knowing they are generally more sought-after and...

    Seats swap W124 and W210 estates

    I've seen a leather interior advertised locally from a W210 estate. Is there any chance that the W210 interior will fit my W124 estate or would that just be too lucky? I've done a search and can't find the question answered anywhere, though I have found others asking the same question.

    200TE & 230TE manual estates - gearbox interchangable?

    I'm new to this so please pardon any blunders here! Please could somebody tell me with 100% certainty that the gearbox, propshaft and clutch of a 1988 230TE are exactly the same and therefore transferrable to a 1990 200TE. They are both estates. Here's why: Since I bought her for £500 two...
