    Poor car, and potentially poor new owner.

    Notice how the airbag in the steering wheel looks replaced too. Looks like it's seen some action.

    In the heading, it's referred to as a 2015 car, but in the detail it's a 2014. Also, it is a C220 so why does the boot badge say 250?

    Who on earth thinks that a repair like that to the N/S/R is acceptable, my dog could have done a better job

    It appears he can't fix cars but at least he knows what's needed to legally drive a car on uk roads.

    The insurance and tax are not transferable to the new owner anyway... not sure what's the point in mentioning it.

    So much wrong with it.

    The grill
    The star (distronic but isn't)
    Should be sport trim not AMG Line
    Should have black interior

    And that's before you get to the 'repair'!! Eeeek

    Buying the car with accident damage is one thing.

    But buying a car that has been partially repaired by an incompetent garage... is another.

    I would be more worried about the parts that have already been repaired.

    I do feel for the seller, clearly he thought he could just repair the car but is now realising it's a mammoth task.

    He will probably sell it easier if he crashes the rear again :D
