hpi clear.recent certificate to prove
needs attention as most do unless they have been restored previously. Drivers side wing has a hole in the common area 50p sized, drivers side inner arch rusty and passenger front inner arch,bonnet has a scab near the grill,passenger side door has previously been painted poorly, a few light surface scratches and rust scabs please bear in mind this is a 27 year old Mercedes and its not uncommon for them to be in need of bodywork repair. some plastics need replacing like boot liner and scuttle grill.
no strange noises etc. gearbox/clutch/differential all great. it has had many parts fitted over the years and has had £1300.00 spent in 2013,this was carried out at a Mercedes specialist. slight hesitation under full load. Exhaust is blown on the down pipe
In very sound condition, rear seats are “as new” passenger side has a bit of staining on the seat base but no wear or tear,bolsters are fantastic. drivers seat bolsters fantastic seat base no wear or tear on the back of the seat there is a slight fray in the material which can be easily rectified. Door cards are blown and require attention/replacing(common fault). Steering wheel fantastic. Basically it’s the condition you would expect to see with such a low mile/owner 190e.
Lights, indicators, wipers, sunroof all working fine. Passenger side front window not working, drivers side rear window not working, lap timer has bled slightly but still works. stereo not working properly.
