After 4 years of ownership, I have decided to buy something different so this is up for sale. It is the Sports edition with the factory fitted extras ie. In car unlocked car phone, larger ventilated disc brakes/larger callipers, special factory 17” alloys, semi-automatic gearbox with flappy paddle change, factory fitted uprated, stiffened, and lowered suspension and AMG body styling, electric adjustable/heated front seats, cruise control/speed limiter for town driving, front and rear Parktronic parking sensors, auto headlights, fog lights, 6 CD multichanger, Parrot Bluetooth phone/ iPod/USB audio system and lots of other stuff. The spare wheel/tools/triangle have never been used. 2 original working keys, full-service documentation/manuals pack, It has always been serviced properly and had a B service a little while ago, also had the poly vee drive belt and thermostat replaced as it was reading low at 70C instead of 90C.
It comes with 12 months MOT, has a matched set of good tread Avon tyres. This is 12 years old but still performs like it’s just come out from a showroom. It’s absolutely 100% reliable and with the looks of a 2-3-year-old car. I will be hard pressed to find a replacement of similar build and quality at the price I paid. I've driven this car for four years and is the best car I've owned for the overall driving experience. It was a joy to drive on long journeys, particularly on a recent trip down to the Alps. The economy was good for an auto, very comfortable and quite engaging to drive. The load-lugging capability was impressive. Running costs are reasonable for a car of this type and spares are readily available.
Having a 2.2-litre diesel engine it will return 50+ MPG on a long motorway run, during which with auto gearbox and cruise control it is very easy to let the car take the strain. I wanted a large estate to carry the occasional large or odd shaped luggage. The boot is huge and if that's not big enough there are the roof rails which take cross bars to increase the luggage capacity. I wouldn't be without a diesel estate and the Mercedes Diesel Estate with Auto gearbox is at the top of the class! I will be replacing it with a 3-year-old C class estate.
I am not in no rush to sell so no silly offers, please. Open to sensible offers. Come and have a look, as the new car is about to arrive. For more information - 07702180046.
