I have owned from new a c200, which has given me 15 years of reliable motoring. I would like to sell it on to a MB enthusiast.
The car is in brilliant silver, automatic, Elegance, full service history with every single receipt. Interior is grey cloth and immaculate. Exterior paint is in very good condition and has been regularly waxed. Photos available.
Is there a market for this car?

Yes there is a market and very nice cars too, they do not make a lot of money, but nothing does at that age

Some photos plus a price would be nice.

Clean, well looked after cars will always sell but it does depend on finding a buyer as you probably well know.

This is why I love my man Malcolm. He leaves no thread unturned. Back to the Op, 15 years of reliability is more than impressive for a C200. What are you looking to replace her with?

with the exception of the rusty wheelarches etc on some of the later ones, I think that the 202 was probably the last of the properly engineered cars. (along with other models from a similar era)

I loved both of mine and they werent quite as electronically dependent so DIY work was easier, especially for diagnostic work

Lovely cars. I had a 1995 C250D that took me to Spain and back and never missed a beat, despite having 125K on the odometer. It cost me £800 and I sold it for £900!
I'm not back in Bedford until mid-July or I would be tempted!

As I've said on many occasions, I'm a massive fan of the 202. If I needed a car right now I'd be tempted to consider the op's car which sounds good. I'm sure a buyer will be found but yes, the're very undervalued now. My 1996 C200's market value is peanuts yet the car's lovely and feels like it will carry on for ever ! Absolutely fantastic value for money.
