    Hmmm either one of two things.......

    1. Someone has bought it (I dunno possible shot in the dark)
    2. Someone has crashed it and hence bits of it are on ebay......

    Sorry to sound harsh but how is anyone supposed to know what happened to your car, its not unique in any sense so its not going to be easy to track down. Unless you sold it to a fellow member on here nobody will know where your car went.

    True, just thought I might give it a shot.... Lucky me though, I was looking through a folder that I keep for car documentation, and I think I have found the guys number!

    Great minds think alike.

    I guess if you left a body in the boot you'd have been tracking it down around Christmas!! :eek:

    Well it's still on the road, and I reckon the first owner was Daimler-Chrysler or DCUK Financial Management. Oh, and the road tax is due on 01/01/2012.

    Where is it? No idea...

    The first owner was actually put down as Enterprise? Mercedes-Benz must have leased it to them or something, I found the car 8 months later sitting on a forecourt at Mercedes-Benz Of Whitefield's.

    Makes sense. Registration numbers beginning KY are often former hire cars, although they used to be registered to Mercedes Financial Management, Asset Management, or some other similar derivation rather than the hire car company themselves. IIRC Enterprise supply cars to MB dealers under the Mobilo scheme, so it may well have been driven by a member of this forum.

    Sadly people buy these cars on the basis that they're something special as ex-management cars, which of course isn't really the case. Absolutely nothing wrong with ex-hire cars though they'll have been maintained on the button and so may be a safer bet than many privately owned cars which don't get the bonnet lifted other than at service time.

    That is true, this has been a fantastic car, and was in really good condition when it came to me, needed one software upgrade to the gearbox, and that was about it. Ex-management cars happen to be some of the best cars I have bought
