    2004 E270 CDI Saloon
    Hey all,

    Have owned a couple of c class models and just decided to up size to a 2004 E270 CDI saloon (130k)

    Test drive went fine purchased the car but noticed a loud 'tinny' sounding clang on the drive home. Only happens just after a speed bump or pot hole and sometimes when i take my foot off the gas.

    Took it local garage with ramps, guy thought it was rear heat shields so secured them with cable ties as a temp fix to see if that was the issue, noise still happening so took it back.

    Car back on the ramps, gave it the total walk through front to back and nothing else obvious stood out (exhaust, covers, suspension etc)

    Apart from this noise it is a fantastic drive, its driving me mad that this spoils it.

    Any similar experiences?

    Thanks in advance
