    FOR SALE:

    • Facelift 2000 model E320 CDI Avantgarde Auto,
    • Silver,
    • Black Leather with piping,
    • 115,625 miles,
    • 2 Previous Owners,
    • Full Service History
    • HEATED SEATS
    • FOLDING MIRRORS
    • ELECTRIC SEATS
    • BLUETOOTH CD PLAYER Headunit fitted as AUDIO 10 didn't play copied CDs

    I bought the car on 24-May-2011 with a view to keep it for a few months as a stop gap.

    The car was purchased blindly from an auction (BCA) with full warranted mileage etc.

    Upon purchasing it I found it to be smoking and having a few issues. It has subsequently spent some time at the mechanics and several senior engineers have worked on it and fixed all the issues.

    During the diagnosis, and issues it has had the following items replaced:

    1. High Pressure Diesel Pump
    2. Fuel lines
    3. Alternator
    4. Seperator/Breather valve
    5. 3 injectors
    6. 6 Injector seals
    7. N/S & O/S Front Ball Joint
    8. N/S & O/S Drop Bar
    9. EGR Valve Cleaned
    10. Manifold Cleaned
    11. FORTE and BG244 Deisel Cleaner treatment

    Previous owner had had the Diesel Pre Pump and Turbo replaced.

    It has had a FULL service as well.

    Some of the above were replaced for peace of mind and comfort purposes.

    With the initial purchase price and all of the above work carried out, I am certain to be making a big loss, however, the car now runs sweetly.

    Even though it was purchased as a stop gap for a short period of time, I wanted to have it running properly and reliably like a MB should, such that when I sold it I would know that it is a genuine reliable car.

    The car now drives perfectly, returning 50+ mpg, and getting from 0-60 in a short space of time. I would happily sell it now knowing it is a safe and genuine car.

    It is due to go in for a new MOT and rust treatment next week while I am away and will be available for test/purchase from 24-Sep-2011 onwards. It currently is taxed until 01-12 and will have 1 yrs MOT.

    I am based in Watford.

    Pricewise, I am open to reasonable/genuine/realistic offers. - What's it worth?

    UPDATE:

    I am still not back home yet, and will be returning over the weekend, therefore have not yet picked up the car.

    Depending on when I return and the garage opening hours, I may not get to pick it up until Monday.

    I have been told that the MOT has been done today, it needed a couple of bulbs, 1 tyre was worn, and 1 was on advisory - so both were replaced. Now MOT'd until 27/9/2012.

    Will update when I get it back...

    Since posting this up for sale in Oct 2011, I fell in love with this 'interim' car - however a year and half on - its now ready to be passed on.

    I have reviewed all of the info above and made a grave error -

    Here is the updated spec:

    I bought the car on 24-May-2011 with a view to keep it for a few months as a stop gap, now just under 2 years on, I have a reluctant sale.

    Previous owner bought the car 29-August-2004 (nearly 7 yrs)

    Since the above listing it has had 4 tyres (Sep 2012), a Service A (Nov 2012) and a new watercooled Alternator fitted in Oct 2012 (£565 !)
