Hi guys.

First time Mercedes owned from Shrewsbury.

I've very reluctantly had to sell my E92 M3 to buy something more economical and better suited to my commute so have just put a deposit down on this.

I think the W204 Coupe is a fantastic looking car and they appear to have a good reputation for reliability.

I probably paid a bit too much but it's got a very decent history and is my preferred colour combo has a pretty good spec and most importantly is in great condition.

Have to say whilst a bit slow compared the M3 I thought the ride was lovely and the gearbox was great!

I dont like the spoiler so that is coming off and I prefer the 7 spoke AMG wheels so if any one has these and wants a swap let me know!

I also need to replace the running light covers and window surrounds as these have been painted black.

Thanks Ben

Looks very tidy, nice interior trim but I agree with you on the spoiler.
You might want to re paint your wheel studs.

Thanks guys. I cant wait to get it.

The trim definitely looks like they've been painted. I might be able to scratch it off though? Doesnt look like a professional job TBH.

Are new parts likely to be expensive from Mercedes? BMW was a bit hit and miss, some bits not and others very expensive.
