I knew prices were dropping but this much for a facelift cab?
You can just about get a coupe for that much, and normally there is a 1.5k difference between coupes n cabs of this model

Someone could grab a good bargain here - although there is no mention of service history, and the fact that there is finance remaining on the car by the current owner could be worrying for some.

Whats the point with it working without the passenger - haha!

I read that at 1230 last night and had to read it again to understand. I guess he means the seat should be moved without a passenger in!!
 
That's quite a good price for the cab in this link. Shame it's not got heated seats and I'd prefer an Avantgarde personally. But you have to factor in the rust and other faults - both ones you'll be aware of such as the faulty passenger electric seat, and those you won't know about until after you've bought it.

Should those rear headrests be sitting that high up?

Realistically, you can pick up good facelift CLK Coupes for less than £4k now, even much newer ones :)

Those headrests are the rollover protection , you can set them at whatever height you choose with the switch on the dash.

Unless the anti roll headrests have been activated for some reason, then they fully deploy.

For the prospective purchaser it is worth making sure that they do go down, or it is a potential item that needs fixing,

A very good point .
 
the headrests should go down with the swicth on the dash.

if they get pushed up due to erractic driving, you need to wait 30 mins or so before they can be retracted. mine popped up whilst driving enthusiatsically down a multi-story-carpark ramp - didnt go down until i got the car home - i thought they are broken but after 30 mins they worked again.

some owners push them right up when the top is down to be on the safe side.... so it could just be that.
 
Evening Gents,

It does look like something of a bargain doesn't it? As you say though...no mention of service history and as he's the fourth owner there could be some history missing.

I think that the rear headrests/roll bar must have been raised for the photos as I think that you can't actually raise or lower the roof while they are up and you therefore have to raise the headrests after putting the roof down.
