hi guys need feedback av got a p reg e230 elegance auto silver minted interior outside not too bad surface rust on arches but apart from that very good is this car worth keeping with a bit of work thanks
if the rust is just surface rust, as you say, id say get the rust sorted and keep it. i have an e class, pre facelift 210, like yours, and i plan on keeping it around for a good while yet!
incidentally, i had surface rust on my wheelarches and before applying new paint (i did mine myself) i got the POR15 starter kit from www.frost.co.uk and up to date, it certainly seems to have done exactly what it claims to do. far better than kurust and cheaper than replacing panels/fitting repair sections. just follow the instruction leaflet and it should sort your rust problem out!
