    Reduced to £2250 - an absolute steal! SO much leather and metal for so little money!

    Regretfully, after 7 years of ownership, I have decided to sell my 1997 Azurite Blue S500L (W140) as I need something more fuel efficient. This was the best car I could find in my price range when looking around back in 2011 and, since then, I've spent quite a lot of money on it and have improved it significantly.

    This is an absolutely lovely car that's looking for an enthusiast to cherish it for many years to come.

    • 21 years old, respray and front wings approx 2 years ago. Body and paintwork is in great condition with the exception of some superficial scratches, and an area of the rear bumper that has had some further paintwork.
    • 101,500 miles - car is in daily use so this will increase a little.
    • Excellent tyres - 8 months old - including spare!
    • Excellent aircon / climate control.
    • Recent MOT.
    • Pure DAB radio included.
    • Some history - receipts etc...
    • Original first aid kit.
    • Private number plate included.
    • Rear blind.
    • Electricals - mirrors, seats, sunroof, windows, central locking, cruise control all working well.
    • Nice seats - no tears.
    • No dashboard warning lights.

    A couple of minor issues (after all, it's 21 years old!):
    • A few dashboard lights not working.
    • Would benefit from new bushes on front wishbones / or replace wishbones if you prefer - MOT advisory (passed MOT a couple of months ago)
    • Some rear windscreen de-lamination in places (around the edges).
    • Some flaking of lacquering on the alloy wheels - sadly fitters at tyre places rarely take care when removing/replacing wheels.
    • Some staining to the carpet - hidden by the genuine Mercedes mats though.

    I've seen the W140's described as a future classic - so now's the time to buy before the prices go up :)

    Car is in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire.

    Simon.

    Reduced to £2250.

    Two of the cam oilers replaced, so no 'tick tick' from the engine (common issue on these). New cam cover gaskets fitted as you'd expect.

    Area of the rear bumper resprayed.
