    That's what I thought, but the plastic oilers made me think.


    Hmm...so It's a V8 or V12...

    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

    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..
