    You could be in luck ....

    There's an 190 over on ebay .... details as follows:

    Mercedes 190e
    Blue Automatic Electric Windows and Sun Roof. Air Conditioning. Full Mercedes Benz Service History

    And that's the description! No pics - no 'detailed' details. The only other useful info ....

    1991 - so it's H or a J plate
    111,500 on the clock
    4 months MOT

    It's on a 7-day posting, with 20 hours to go and so far no bids! It's also a first-time seller.

    The starting price is £1,000 and as mentioned - there's no bids on it yet.

    Unfortunately the majority of bids come in on the last 10 minutes. But it would be worth watching. Only because, if it does not receive any bids then you could easy go in there wave your wad and get it for a good price ... "no bids you see ... priced too high .. here's £700". Obviously there's all the usual caveats, etc .... All the stuff Andy_K debriefed you on.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2432303096&category=9855

    K

    P.S. - good example of how not to sell something on ebay and also a good example on how to pick up a right baragin.

    119 years old and just run in (1884). Personally serviced my Mr Benz himself. Would like to see THAT service history lol

    Joking aside it sounds like a really nice car although the insurance may be a tad heavy (jealous grin, wish I could afford it) :D :D
