I was on Jays website looking at stock (trying to see if he has 212 estates and indeed new shape CLS SB's to gauge prices) and also cars like mine to get an idea of what its depreciated by and I spotted this

http://www.mercland.com/model/958-2...VANTGARDE-DIESEL-ESTATE-AUTOMATIC-SILVER.html

Nice engine, nice gearbox and a very high spec'd E220cdi. I like the headlining, not sure about the seats but it looks really classy.

I loved my 211 and the thought did cross my mind, but it'll be a tad too wallowy for my tastes but this looks a great last gen 211 to get into.

From time to time, I do lurk around on his website. The prices of his cars are quite competitive. Not a fan of ordinary looking E-class, estate or saloon, but I love estate AMGs. They really stand out and for some reason, they remind me of the RS6 wagons. Back to your advert, the interior of that car really does it for me and I am big fan of that Comand unit. The ex-owner really cared for the car. Props to him! Sure John (developer) will love this one. ;)

He's a good trader and I would not hesitate to source a car from him again.

This is a particularly good 211 as a) its the last of them b) that interior and spec.

I'd love an AMG one but not the costs. CLS SB AMG is the dream car, but I'd take a 350cdi ;)

He's got a lot of C class estates on his site, they must sell well. Well, I bought one and am very happy with it, but something more comfortable will replace it one day

Hello MCBD,

I love the interior colour, but couldn't cope with the 100bhp, 2 cylinder drop.

How's that lovely CLS?

I think Mercland will wait probably for a year or two if not more so that the SB can take a humongous depreciation before you see one on his website. If you look on average, the cost of his cars, I am yet to see one well over £30,000. They are all below 20,000 mark. Sure, that's a clear sign, that he buys cars that he is sure of shifting quickly in terms of demand and affordability.

I'm a sort of under £20k guy.

He told me he likes to sell good reliable cars as sheds are bad for business with unhappy customers and rectification costs plus cars that are easy to sell. Diesel saloons and estates basically.

Cls SB really is the dream ;)

I really love the interior of that! The only thing I would do is have a darker exterior colour! Nice car though and well specced!

Hello Mark,

Standard AG spec plus COMAND/heated seats and that tan leather.

Other than that - 16" wheels, no memory pack, not much else really.

Nice, but a basic spec.

I concur. I see them a lot in Buckingham. Can't stop admiring through my rear view its beautiful symmetrical roof extending back all the way to the rear end. Gosh, can't believe that I use to be one hell of an Audi fanatic not until I sat my black ass on the seat of the CLS, then it became apparent to me that Mercedes set the pace, others follow. Now, let's see what Audi & BMW will introduce to rival this well appointed concept.

I know the interior doesn't go with the body but its got to beat beige paint. Dark blue would work well with it.

I genuinely like silver cars and if wanted a 211 estate would buy that. It crossed my mind to put an offer in on it but suspect it won't be as fun as mine

Older Citroen Now :-(
That's identical to my interior in every way...
(Mine has the NTG 2.5 now and not the old unit in my photo)..
