    Here we have a C215 in a lovely light blue with some pleasent Brabus options.
    But quite why the chap has badged it as a 58 is beyond me. He even says its a standard 5.0 litre unit, rather than the 5.8 Brabus unit implied by the badging and engine cover.
    He's also claiming it's a V12?

    Maybe he was thinking about his other car , the Vanquish , while he was writing the listing ? ;)

    It's a Cat D too ...

    Yep because all well-heeled Aston Martin and Range Rover drivers drive round in Cat-D written off, overbadged, old-shape CLs with a inferiority complex..:D ;)

    I wonder if his 'Overfinch' Range Rover sports such a high performance upgraded engine specification.

    Maybe the Aston is a kit car?

    (sorry for that :) :eek: )

    The ad sounds very 'convincing' - do you think he has paid off the service manager at Stratsone Ulverston too?

    LOL. Just as well our CL isn't overbadged or a Cat D, but it is EVEN older :D
    Our Range Rover does Overfinch wheels though :eek:

    Deffo worth a punt @£10k....... Fella sounds more than genuine, giving his work contact details etc.........
    If I ever come to sell my 300D, I'd give my garage's name as a reference - as they do everything to the car and know it (and me) quite well......

    Damn - just looked under my matress - only £8k left....!!

    Considering your location, would that be a certain Merc Specialist in Loddon? :D

    I really like that CL, if only I had a spare £10K and a big garage. Mercedes of the South Lakes is my local dealer and where I bought the GL320 from. They seemed like a decent bunch of people.
