    It's a thing of great beauty.

    If it's the car I'm thinking of, (not many like that around and in that colour) I'm pretty sure it sold in around February/March last year on ebay for around £4,300 - 4,600. I thought about buying it myself back then. The seller was from London and I think it came to my attention from a thread on this very forum. A cool car indeed. :cool:

    The alloys need refurbing and there's corrosion on the bottom of the N/S rear door and N/S rear arch - bargaining points.
    Send a couple of friends (that walk away from the deal) to test the water on price etc. Hope you get it.

    I agree ... A 2001 saloon in very good condition with 116k miles, heated orthapedic and sat nav sold for £3k the other day and needed no bodywork.

    Edit ... And it was a trade seller.

    This is a nice one though .. Colour is lovely and interior looks nice combo.

    If he'll give you a really good price for your E240 , it might be a reasonable buy. What it went for on eBay suggests it's true value is no more than £4K now, but it's "worth" whatever somebody will pay for it; how much do you want it?

    'Send a couple of friends (that walk away from the deal) to test the water on price etc.' Now that is VERY good advice.

    Good luck.

    Still sitting there waiting for a buyer. LINK.

    It's a lovely looking thing, but it would have to be very tidy to make the asking price. The close-up pictures show there's work to be done.

    I agree, i've had to curb my enthusiasm for the moment on this one and get a new lawnmower instead.

    Not many in that colour. It really is a lovely thing, but bringing it up to the mark would cost around £1500 - £2000.

    I almost bid on it when last for sale on ebay at around £4200 and regret not buying it, really.
    For sure, the seller will be fortunate to sell at the listed price. I wish someone would buy it to put me out of my misery.

    I don't think that any W210 could ever be described as such.

    Beauty is relative really

    Id compare the E55 Wagon to the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis / Lucy Lawless - not beutiful per say but you know you would ;)

    It's a lovely car. Oodles of style, kit, comfort, poke and that colour... :cool:

    I'll concede the kit, comfort and poke.

    But style ? Not a chance.
