    Hasn't got a clue has he it amazes me he has 10 bidders, for somebody that can't take more care over setting up his auction I wouldn't want to have any dealings with him.

    What does 50 quind in two weeks exactly represent, he might only get 10 mpg for all we know! Sometimes auctions like this do put me off the seller, naive or not it does, as it does when someone constantly tells you how fast they are etc etc. Just makes me think it's been ragged.

    Does look pretty badly affected by rust, oh dear....

    Funny advert


    If the rust is that bad from what you can see what about what you cannot???

    Love the £50 lasts him 2 weeks.


    In my ML £50 can last be a month....doesn't make it any more economical !!


    Maybe worth something for bits, but not even cleaned / hovered, 155K and rust rust and more rust.

    If it only takes £50 to fill his tank there's something wrong... He should have the same 62ltr tank I have, and that costs me around £70 to fill up...

    Dads CLK ( V8 430 ) is the most economical car i know , £120 worth of fuel lasted him a whole year ....

    He only did 600 miles in it though ;) as we were told by the MOT man the other day ....

    I can't wait till he wants to get rid of it , it's like new ..... :bannana:
