    You would think for that money the dealer might have thought to replace the 3 missing engine covers rather than just spraying it with silicone.

    A period Mercedes radio would also have been nice.

    Looking at the other cars for sale it looks like they steam clean and silicone the engine to death, patch the drivers seat bolster and then ask for silly money.

    Have no experience of the place but they are asking £9k for an 86 SEC with rusty old knacker chrome arch covers!

    At that price I would rather have a new shape SL500

    If you use it then its going to drop like a stone anyway.

    If I were after that shape then a Milia Mile one??? (think thats spelt wrong) or a silver arrow.

    trying it on me thinks

    £25k is taking the mick. It's still a pre-facelift car, and spec. looks fairly basic rather than "massive". Only option appears to be heated seats.

    Let's not forget that according to the salesman:
    You know it makes sense :)

    stunning value - but does not say who for. Maybe stunning for the seller?

    25 grand what a laugh.

    Calls himself School Garage - maybe he needs to go back to school to learn about not wildly overpricing his cars

    Stupidly expensive and not the best colour scheme.

    He must be high listing it for £25k!

    I wouldn't be surprised if that advert listing is several years old (several...:rolleyes: )

    There's a nice looking 190E 2.5-16 that I know has been on there for at least 2/3+ years.

    Funny thing is that if it's still available (the 190E), he's more likely to get the money these days as they are getting rarer!
