History
I have owned a lot or Mercs and they have always been circa 1987 - 1995. These were the years of production when they were hand built and built to last
After much investigation, I imported the car from Yokohoma Japan December 2007. Unfortunately the cars documentation went missing during the shipping. After landing at Southampton and all the relevant duties etd were paid, I had the car delivered up to Mercedes Benz (dealership) in Lincoln. I have owned the car just over three years now, but for the last year I have not seen it at all, as I sent her away to get a new upper wirring harness fitted and then the gear box fixed. It was only down to me that the car was away for so long as I just did not get round to sorting out the movements of the car from one mechanic to the other as you will see from the service history below
She needs to go to a good home now where the car will be used and ran like it should be!!
I run about in an 2007 B7 RS4 now which is also now up for sale

Body Work - Interior
The body work is in fantastic condition for its age. There is some small parts of paint flaking from the front bumper here and there but not really noticeable
I cannot find any rust on her at all
The car needs a real good valet and wax to be honest as I only got the car back a few weeks ago after it had been away for over a year and probably not washed once
The interior again is in great condition, back seats still do not look they have ever been used
The center box console where you can put coins or whatever needs re-securing and the leather around the centre pillars, drivers side between the drivers seat and rear passenger seat has come away slightly also
I have a personal plate on the car which is not included in the sale
Security - The car has a tracker fitted, membership is up for renewel and can be transferred to the new owner at cost £149.00


Come and see for yourself

I will be putting more pictures on the add, when I get round to it. The older pictures are the ones where the car has the wheels unpainted ( so silver alloy ) and some of these pictures are from the original advertisement when I bought the car in 2007
