KNOWN ISSUES (MINOR)
  1. Drivers side lumbar support has a slow leak somewhere (possibly a hose). Auto Audio changed the lumbar air bladder in 2015 but it didn’t resolve the issue. I was advised to just to re-inflate with the seat button if and when needed as it only takes a few seconds :)
  2. There are two small parking dents - on the rear left door and rear left arch. I have not fixed them because bodyshops have told me they need to blend over three panels of original paint! I don’t do smart repairs. Apart from that there are a few barely visible stone chips and some bonnet patina from motorway driving.
  3. I recently replaced the Driver’s Keyless Entry door handle. The others have stopped working over time, but it’s not possible to get them from the factory currently - the ones in stock at the factory are a bad batch with reversed polarity, and in a response to my MB Dealer (Bedford) the factory said they will not manufacture anymore colour coded handles unless more owners complain!
EXTRAS
  1. All invoices and receipts provided in a folder.
  2. All manuals and service books in MB wallet.
  3. Original COMAND Nav head unit also supplied in box - these antiques still command good money on eBay!
  4. You’ll also get a box of goodies containing OEM Mercedes oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid, ATF fluid, touch up paint, dip stick, extra wheel nuts, extra locking nuts, etc.
  5. Both keys and V5 provided.

CONCLUSION

I have taken good care of this car over the last 8 years, and have ensured that all the important things have been done in addition to the consumables. Any questions feel free to ask. The car is located in Canary Wharf, London. Payment by bank transfer only, with cleared funds before collection.

Thanks for viewing!
