I think it was one of MB Enthusiast's long term test and ownership experience as a used car. So not necessarily pampered but maintained well enough I guess.The only thing that bugs me is if its a enthusiast car why sell it with a broken boot release switch, missing gear knob emblem and what looks like a low coolant warning light on the dash. I know these are petty cheap fixes but still you would have thought the owner would have fixed those small issues if he has previously spent big money on other areas. Non the less still a lovely looking C43.
The car was re sprayed by a bodyshop local to olly whom he knows well iirc.andy27168 said:I think that would be a pretty good buy for someone looking for sorted 43, option wise its not really lacking a lot its got a sunroof, xenon's, folding mirrors only things its really missing is the rear blind and PDC which is uber rare on a w202, and a Designio two tone interior which some probably would be glad of. It would probably be missing dimming RVM, illuminated sun visors and puddle lights but if you were really bothered they could be easily retro fitted for £100-130 on parts (possibly cheaper), of which none are particularly hard to source from a breakers. My only concern looking at this would be the standard of the re-spray, and having been maintained by Olly the mileage wouldn't bother me. MPG will be better than that I was getting just over 30MPG on a run back from Cornwall in mine when I was running the 43 engine.
