    500 though, not a 55. 55's had quad exhausts.

    Had both and they were great !

    Currently on a W216 CL500 which is great !

    Oh yes it's steep for 160k but offer the £1k for it in a take or leave deal I'd wonder if they would say yes?

    My thoughts too, I know there's another 215 for sale down the road from me with a few toys and very good ABC and only 60k miles, problem is its up at £5.5k

    God yes, it's so overpriced for what it is even at the low mileage,

    Still a hell of a car for the money though.

    Amazing, you can buy a rusty old heap for that money, so much car. That said, obviously the repair and maintenance probably much more than the average sub 2k car :)

    I always had a soft spot for the CL's same front as mine and that big arse! Looks great as a tin top.

    For £1000 ... thats less than the price of one front strut,
    Blimey if the ABC works, its worth driving it till it breaks and chucking it out for scap.
    Hmmm maybe that the cheapest motoring route. Zero repairs and if it drives for a year you are laughing.

    Initially, Said in jest but opon reflection hmmmmmm :)

    Correct, I had the same model.

    The OP blue one looks stunning in that colour combo.
