    Does look like a lot of car for the money.

    I'd think that with 60k on the clock it'd still be in rude health, but I wouldn't fancy the repair costs for electric/unusual items etc (suspension/control units etc). Anyone aware of common 221 weaknesses yet?

    Nice that being a fairly recent model it still looks like a £50-100k car to most people I should think, private plate would complete the package if you wanted to use it for work. If not, what a great car for the price of a new C-class.

    Looks pretty nice, great colour combination & pretty cheap for a 320 CDI. I've seen a few cheap W221 S500's but not a CDI as cheap (until now).

    The centre armrest looks a bit worn though, not sure about what normally goes wrong with these - would make a nice car for someone.

    Nice. Lots of (subtle) flash for the cash.

    Its the less sought after blue.... LIMO version so no doubt a chauffered car. In another 6/8 months, there will be loads of them in used car market... closer to 20k I reckon for a similar car..
