This was my boss's car, I'd always said that when he came to p/x it I would match the p/x price that he was offered. And why not, I knew the car's complete history and the level of MB dealer service it had received - he used to take it main dealer for replacement brakelight bulbs!
The car looks fantastic from every angle in it's brilliant silver paintwork, and the leather interior makes the miles disappear. I still get a kick from having the car 'hand me' my seat belt, and the way that the front and rear windows do their little dance when a door opens or closes.
The car's 5 cylinder engine is as has been said before a little agricultural in the mornings and at traffic lights, but once warm and on the move it's not noticeable, the weight of the engine does make the car a little nose heavy and demands a little respect going into fast bends. The car has the 5 speed auto box and whilst there have been some moans about the car being slow of the line compared with later models both myself and my driving license are more than happy with the cruiser nature of the car. I particularly like the cruise control and it's license saving counterpart in the speed limiter for use in 30/40 mph zones (I currently have 6 points on my license so ensuring I don't pick up any more).
Why only 4 stars?
The car came with the factory fitted sports suspension, which is a little too low for me, and has the back end a little skittish
