    it does look extremely clean, 1 owner, and its a 4matic so not that unrealistic really.

    highish miles though, would put me off paying that much.

    The mileage is 180k plus and it was for sale for some time down south at way less than 3k. Can't be too many with green leather so I am assuming it's the same one.

    I like the green leather. The miles would not put me off but I have heard that the 4 matic can be expensive to fix if it goes wrong. A few more pics would be good on the advert.

    That's a whole lot of green going on in there! I like the seats and had an Audi with similar colour leather but it didn't boast matching seats and carpets.

    The photos are actually the same ones used by the previous seller, it certainly doesn't have every extra and the paint match on the front wings is off, his slightly abrupt advert won't endear him to everyone either.

    Theres a Bentley Continental thats been on Ebay for a while with this statement in the ad.....

    The owner of the car is adamant about achieving his asking price & respectfully asks that people unable to meet that refrain from enquiring.

    All comments like that do is make you dismiss that particular one and look elsewhere!

    every extra?

    i dont see electric seats, memory seats, electric steering colum, lumbar support, auto dim mirror, climate control, passenger airbag was an option at this date i believe...

    but not that optimistic considering you hardly ever see 4matics now let alone in such good condition, so i suspect he will -eventually- get near his asking price but it will mean waiting for the right buyer who appreciates its rareaty.

    "It is in very good condition but there are some tiny marks as it is 23 years old".

    So I don't really understand how the bodywork and interior can then be described as "mint".

    The previous trader had it for some 6 months or there abouts at half the price, we shall see.

    It is a lovely car, don't get me wrong, and that green leather is superb, but I think it could be better for the money

    Maybe when he says "mint" he's referring to the colour ;)
