In all the years I've been involved with these cars, very little surprises me these days, but this car has done just that; it is without exception the best preserved W202 I have ever seen, and that includes a couple of Japanese imports that I've looked at over the years too. The underside of the car is simply incredible, and I dare say, I can, at last, use the much misused term "rust free" with some degree of confidence when referring to this car.
Supplied new by London Road Mercedes, Romford to a London doctor, who has owned the car its entire life , and who barely used it, keeping it in an underground garage. This is obviously been a major contributory factor in the preservation of this car. It's also all original too, and according to my paint man, who has over 30 years experience, and can spot non-factory paintwork at twenty paces, is confident that the paint on this car is all original too, which is quite incredible for a twenty year old vehicle.
I have to say it's when you get an example like this in your possession, that you realise what a superbly refined car the W202 is, and that it's every bit a Mercedes-Benz, and still drives like a Mercedes should. I do think the W202 was somewhat maligned because it was the replacement for the now legendary W201 190, which was a very hard act to follow, but as time passes, I and many others, are starting to see the merits of the first incarnation of the now well established C-Class range
So in summary, this is pretty much a perfect car in all departments; its not often I can say that. The drive is simply extraordinary good, and the M112 V6, powering the rear wheels through the five speed automatic gearbox, really does suit the chassis dynamics of the W202. This car still feels, and almost looks like the near £30,000 vehicle it once was. They don't come around too often like this, in my experience, so if you want one of the best W202 C-Classes out there, here it is.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business. To read more, see my website at http://www.mtsv.co.uk
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
