    Naff grill and rest looks ropey, worth a punt if it stays less than £1500, it's only a 230K after all...

    Give that CLK a detail and it'll be worth £5k.

    Looks okay, as you say the kit itself is worth it.

    Definitely a cheap run around that may polish up well. Remove the tints, change the grill etc.

    If the wheels are genuine AMG could be a good buy.

    Great advert. So let me get this straight, he took it in p/ex, so it won't be registered to him presumably, but "its on a private plate so new plates needed to drive away". How's that gonna work then??? Some trader.........

    That's not gaffer tape, they are carbon effect racing stripes

    As others have said... thats a very cheap car, with a bit of tlc that would make a tidy profit for someone....

    I sold mine for £3250, to a dealer! Just before christmas last year..

    Mine had done 145K it was a '98 and didn't have the AMG kit on it.. Just some 18" AMG mono II reps..

    Guess I got lucky.

    how much would the boot lock cost to repair? and how would one get a plate on the car before driving away - is that a quick process?

    Reading between the lines, the log book probably isn't back from the DVLA and the seller is also too tight to shell out £20 for a set of plates.

    Even with all the risks involved, it's still a good buy for someone.

    so looking at plates, boot lock repair, probably some rust in the arches (?). Agree. Looks like a good deal. I may offer him my 124 and try my luck ;-) This could be a good runaround.

    How does one do an HPI check without a number plate to go on? Excuse ignorance please.

    You would use either the original Reg. Plate or the one that's just come off. You can use the VIN aswell to a degree.
