Great car I see you got one with plenty on it,you cannot go wrong for £8 grand,the mileage is nothing for one of these,I suppose it came with plenty of service history,a couple of tips you are well into having the ATF in the box changed for a second time so unless it has been done recently I would get that done,and when you park use the electronic parking brake instead of hitting the park on the column,reason is if you don't use the electronic parking brake you will lose it,the thing will stop working,good news you are near Wayne Gates,so well done.

Well thats a W221 that has loads of stuff on it,many for sale a the moment are poverty spec,so well done to find that one,memory front seats give you something that cars without do not have and thats when you select reverse the nearside mirror will dip down to allow you to see that expensive rear alloy when parking I always feel thats a nice touch,also once the car is up to speed you might notice that the front dips down a little to give better aero dynamics,as I have said that shape for me is timeless,the drains at either end of the windscreen sometimes block with dead leaves just need a look at now and then.

And then we go to Ibiza and our airport transport is only an S Class W222 with Burmester stereo - check out this rear door tech!!! ❤️

I thought at first you had changed your car...

Straight away the silver buttons on the steering wheel you are in a 222.

Not so keen on the interior wood trim colour but he's chosen the right illumination colour for the ambient lighting!

The Burmester is nothing to write home about in my opinion but I got mine upgraded and it sounds a lot better now...

Mine is an S500L with the individual rear seats - pity I can't use them!
