    I shudder to think what you would add to that to bring it up to your standard of bling!!:D:D:D Mind you, the before and after photos would be so amusing I'm not sure they would be for this thread or the "Even More Jokes" thread!!:D:D:D

    That is very local to me, in fact I know where those pics were taken but shame it is a CL.
    I would take a punt on it if it goes for not much more.

    Lots of car for little money. The owner may not have a clue how to hold a spanner so wants shot. I woulld be tempted if I was local.

    Could be a real plum :cool: .... (designo paint?)

    Worst case, flush system to clear any debris, new ABC pump (£500 from MB) 3 accumulators and £70 seal kit per valve block.

    Looking at photos (if recent) it hasn’t dropped, indeed it looks ‘raised’ - (not pipework) maybe just a pressure warning, (pump). Maybe a general garage or dealership has quoted him some horrific price?
    It may have even been a warning when a sphere pops and would be cheap fix?

    Looks nice condition, seats could do with a clean.

    Brakes may just be from standing - rusty disc, may clean up but discs n pads are service items anyway.

    Could be a bargain, especially if you later sell the reg onto “Ray” who owns a Jag?

    How about breaking

    AMG engine?
    AMG wheels?

    Probably worth it to break :( which would be sad too.

    Looking at the sellers history it is probably a local scrappy selling it on.
