    It looks a lovely car which has been well maintained and well worth the money. I reckon a car like this will be worth the same if not more in a few years time, free motoring. This is the kind of car that only comes along now and again.

    Maybe a DAB aerial? It's got an Alpine head unit.

    Confirmed it's got xenon's. Reason for sale given is he's emigrating.

    It will require money spending on bodywork I can see a few rust spots.

    The cowling is missing from the cooling fans.

    The V5 states it is a C43 AMG

    It does have service booklet by original dealership has the car as 'C43 Mclaren sport' also McLaren badge as in photo's.

    There is no difference to the Suspension
    There are rust spots on car & the wheels are a bit kerbed
    It has been chipped . McLaren badge as in photo's.
    12 months Mot

    390bhp has not been verified other than word of mouth.

    Whats it worth?

    That's for you to decide, just under £4k?

    It seems to be a normal c43, if so wait for a lower miles/more tidy example to appear.

    It is a high spec C43. Rare to see them with all those options?

    Xenon's, heated seats, folding mirrors, electric rear blind, parktronic, illuminated sill plates, split folding rear seats, fire extinguisher, automatic climate control.

    Most of those are very rare on any W202, but couldn't remember if any of those came as standard on a 43...

    Reading the thread was nice to see some of the old members. I have no contact with Mambo, but do see Pammy on Facebook and as far as I know she still has Edna (her SLK).

    It is a very high spec 43, though the options you state heated seats, folding rear seats and climate control are standard on a 43 from the factory.
    It is rare for a 43 to have the centre lower switch panel fully populated, and uber rare for non 43 202.

    No one can clarify the 390bhp claim then? Seems a wild claim without evidence to back it up, especially on such a specialist car... No way that will just be a different ecu.

    With Headers, Eurocharged re-map, and Air Filters on a 55 engine you only get about 390 BHP (calculated flywheel) if you are lucky, if this still has a 43 engine in it then you will be lucky to be seeing 230-240BHP at the wheels.

    I had did talks with the owner, surprised he has not advertised it here being a member & all.

    All a bit vague TBH.
