23 Octavia IV 98 SL500 /86 911/sold
Sold the C43 on sat and immediately went looking at S211's , my budget at max£4.5 k wasn't enough , tired old things they were , "don't like ML's" I had been heard to say so I am quite surprised to say I bought one .. , and I think its great , albeit rather bouncy..
Anyways it's an 03 ML350 with 75k on the clock , Bose and privacy glass plus full service history all for £3.9k..
And I thought the C43 mpg was poor.....

Nice , got side steps too !
 
My dads got a 430ml

Loves it , got a front tow bar on it to pull boats in and out.
 
I can see me ending up with another ml (petrol this time) if or when the Shogun dies.
 
They are a bouncy ride but it can be much improved by replacing shocks, especially the rear ones!

It'll never ride as nicely as a well sorted W202 though.

Choppy ride more than bouncy , which is prob a factor of the car design.
Whatever it's a more comfortable ride than the AMG..
After a weeks driving it's returned 24.5 mpg with a lot of mway, about the same as the C43
Still liking it
