    Everyone has black or silver - black is a bitch to keep looking pristine, silver never looks really clean - but then never looks really dirty! The colour of that one is very similar to my S204 Carneol Red metallic. I love it - and it stands out in the car park so is easy to find!! With the full leather seats, we've found the heated seats are lovely in winter as the leather is pretty cold in the morning but warms quickly when you put the seat heat on.

    If I wanted an E, I'd give that one serious thought!

    Still not sure ahout the colour as for black and silver being common maybe so in the mainland but its really hard even to find a cdi sport here so black or silver wouldnt have that affect here, still to look about but that one is a minter no a single mark on it! How many bhp would this model have is it 205bhp? I know it has a large torque figure 510nm!!

    Go for it, stand out from the crowd.

    That colour will definately turn some heads.

    220bhp or threabouts (ISTR figures of 224 and 227 being given in the past).

    The performance figures for the E320 speaks for itself.

    It would be worth getting getting the service history confirmed - given that they're claiming that it has a FMBSH then a printout should be available from an MB delaer (presumably the one that service it if it's local).

    I like that colour.

    I always said I'd never have a silver car...and I didn't until I drove the Merc I currently have. A small sacrifice to make I thought and I must admit it's grown on me. :doh:
