Ok well done to *** and DM.

Yep, I prized this out of the hands of our very own Talbir.

Its been very exciting as ive been after one for ages... I wanted a facelift, but I got a facelift UK model, making it rare as hens.. this is its spec:

• One of 29 UK Supplied Cars and one of the two UK supplied in 1993
• Brabus Wheels
• Brabus Steering Wheel with Airbag
• Brabus Pedals
• Brabus Floor Mats
• Brabus Suspension
• Brabus Outside & Oil Temperature Display
• Brabus Back Box
• Recaro C Seats – Heated & Ortho
• MB Phone
• Rear Blind
• Illuminated Sills
• Genuine Centre Console Fridge
• Auto Dimming Mirrors
• In fact every single option possible!
• Featured MB Enthusiast in 2004


Talbir worked hard over the last few weeks to ensure I got the car in perfect order.. Just two weeks before his wife is due.

I really appreciate the effort he has put in as I have got my perfect E500 now.

Being Talbir, he has added every single faftory option and all the available Brabus mods too!

the car runs beautifully and the thing I love is that, unlike the SEC, it could be a daily driver.. Its practicle and extremely powerful.

Also managed to get myself a great private plate to go on it...

Ill be taking some proper pics tomorrow, but here are some of Talbirs own pics....

Thanks again Talbir...

Very nice indeed, Jay, I like it a lot.

I sometimes find myself wondering if I should have bought an E500 instead of the Civic.

Respect Jay - Very nice motor. Does it still have the orth-seats? I thought Talbir was talking of putting them in something else (but then I could be completely wrong:eek: )

Love the top of the centre console - it has every switch possible:rock: (not that you will se much need for the snow chain one in Nuneaton.)

I guess the plate with 500e might figure in the equation somewhere too:rolleyes:

Very jealous and very much looking forward to seeing it

You would have lost less money at trade in time!

I feel very lucky at the moment..

It was hard to let go for him, he has put in a huge amount of work over the years he has owned it... I actually felt bad for buying it from him! I know what he must feel like as I have similar feelings for the SEC...
Who says cars are just metal.

But a true gent, he has left me nothing to fiddle with... everything works and I cant think of any mods apart from maybe an avantgarde grill..
