    Looks great from the outside. Just not so sure about the inside.

    It actually looks great value for a practical car with only 12000 miles on the clock....

    I make no excuses for loving a bit of well-placed chrome and I think that and the deep brown really set each other off. Looks similar to HMs deep burgundy.

    Like it and would always close a light interior anyway.

    If it was a choice between this and a brand new CashCow I know which way I'd jump.

    I have the same interior (but with piano black wood and a squashed steering wheel) on my CLS500 SB and I love it. Much better in the hide than in photos)

    That brown would match my shoes so nicely. I like it but my Mrs hates brown cars.

    (Husky voice) This is not just a diesel, it's an M&S, sorry, MB six-cylinder diesel and at least it's not the cabbie 2.2/4.

    I agree on the mileage - almost too low, but the flip side is a full MBSH and it's clearly been nursed. However, if worst came to worst, a car worth the investment of a new DPF if necessary.

    'Best colour combination' - is that with the cream interior in the pics, or the black leather upholstery mentioned twice in the description?

    With such little previous use I would bet on loads of niggling issues to occur once it starts being used properly.

    I never noticed the colour, thought it was black!

    Not really a fan of the styling of the Shooting Brake, just doesn't work to my eyes.

    Each to his own, I guess.

    Luckily, it's out of my price range anyway!

    I’ve seen this car in the flesh. It’s virtually new car condition. I can vouch for the car.
