The engine is strong, is turbine smooth and pulls well and is oiltight.

The car sits on later and wider mercedes wheels and handling is superb. Tyres have good tread depth.

Before my ownership:
Comes with 2 (original) working remote fobs
MOT until end JANUARY 2020 with no advisories.
I have no worries about reliability - I have driven it to Devon a few times,Wales, Cotswolds, etc. etc.
I have most of the service history but some was mislaid by the previous owner.
The car is a joy to drive and I am only selling due to my (& my wifes!) older age - it's getting a bit too low - so it's a reluctant sale.
Mileage is 109600. It is in almost daily use and the mileage will increase.
