    The first thing I notice is that for an "AMG Sport" it doesn't have the aluminium trim panels (although it's always possible that someone has reinstalled the Avante trim).

    Obviously it's worth checking the number on the M272 engine, but in theory 2008 should be in the clear.

    The price seems quite low, but that might reflect the malfunctioning climate control.

    It's not avantgarde spec as if doesn't have darker rear clusters.

    Check rear arches for rust
    Mirrors fold in and out
    All softclose windows close
    Rear numberplate lights work (if they don't, rear SAM needs replacing)

    Its MOT History could be better looking. I note its done very few miles recently, this and the fact that its got a VGS 2 valvebody would lead me to budget £600 or so for a possible replacement gearbox electroplate.

    Doesn't look a bad car though, nice seats - multi-contour and heated.

    Is the common stepper motor issue fixed in the facelift models?

    I would check that, symptoms = clicking sound from inside the dash area on initial start up.

    Any chance it's had a few parts changed? - It's supposed to have COMAND (and it looks like it does in the photo), but the ad states Audio 20.

    I'd be checking what's fitted vs the data card vs what the advert says (and asking questions where they don't match).

    Thanks for the replies.
    There too much about this car that doesn't add up, so hopefully it won't be heading our way. :thumb:
