    he could be correct though if he's replaced discs and pads, it could just need resetting

    It's not a facelift model, contrary to his subtitle. I wonder if he means "not an S210"?

    At that price, it may be worth the trip to get the SBC sorted (doubtless the cause of the warning and the reason for the sale). 172k is nowt, as Paul knows.

    An E270CDi...the others are so it comes up in the search for E320 or E220 as they could be considered to become "equivalents"...same as putting "merc E270CDi not BMW 530 not Audi A6, etc.

    well i got a reply!!:lol:...this is what i sent:Oops::lol:

    Hi there, just thought i would mention to you that the brake visit workshop light is more than just turning it off, Sometimes a software update fixes it and extends the life of the SBC brake pump , and other times the SBC pump actually needs replacing at a cost of about a grand..... pretty serious warning with terrible results if just left....good luck with the sale, hope it all works out well for you and the buyer,


    and this is what i got back...........


    im sure the parts can be purchaced 2nd hand for the fraction of the price, thank you


    what a Tit :rolleyes:

    They're more lenient with those then than with the 63 AMG trouble-child.

    I had the usual valve repair done under warranty at 35000 miles. Now, 25000 miles later, the issue is back and MB UK's line is "Since the issue was repaired under warranty, we will not intervene. We only do so if the customer paid himself for the initial repair". ...
    So if they replace the bad parts with parts of the same type, next time, you'll pay yourself. (Sure, why should MB bother solving the problem with the part if you can ask the customer every 25000 miles to replace it ?) :rolleyes:

    It doesn't look too bad to be honest, and It is a cheap luxury estate.
    I don't like the 'just like a BMW 530d' thing though. It's nothing like a 530d!!!

    :lol:... thats ALMOST low mileage compared to ours:D.... although there can only be one 211 in our life as she will get upset otherwise:lol::Oops:.... Not against a 210 estate though,,,, (malcolm210s fault putting the pics up of the respray he had....such huge cars, comfy, smooth and powerful all in one....

    i may of given it a bash if it wasnt SO far away... but i would of had to of knocked him down to 3 grand to allow for the new SBC Pump.:lol:

    i have actually seen a seriously nice W210 top speck 320 estate not too far from me but its either too much ...or over my budget...i am not too sure which one it is yet:shock: but he did tell me to do one when i offered him 2500:lol::Oops:... only 600 less than his asking price..whats the problem:Oops:

    i must have a illness as i find it interesting just looking at cars:rolleyes::Oops:

    I am pretty sure the MB Fleet will be slightly changed around a bit over the next month or two.... my heart says stuff it stick with the V8 and my head says Stuff it stick with the V8...But my wallet says get a 320:lol::lol::lol:
