    Picking up a W210 this evening, is this anything to worry about?

    I'm picking up a nice, rusty-but-still-MOT'd W210 300dt this evening, on 172k. I'll be driving it back about 200 miles so I should get a good idea if there's anything serious wrong mechanically, but I just got the below info from the seller: "1 - oil weep from oil filler cap on rocker cover -...

    Don't think Mercedes has to worry about BMW just yet....

    Look at the state of the new BMW 1 series Is there an uglier car out there? When you look at the new A class concept, which I know isn't a production model but gives us an idea of Merc's direction, I feel sorry for brand loyal Beemer owners. Then again, no I don't, stuff em.

    Leaking oil? Worry?

    OK guys, what do you make of this? I just pulled the plastic cover off the top of my engine (M112 V6) to discover rather a lot of what appears to be old oil all over the place. Is this something to worry about? Expensive repair coming up? I find she's drinking a fair amount of oil...
