Not sure what the fine print says, but im sure it will exclude nearly everything that breaks.
Yep id imagine , a mate of mine bought a 2009 CLS 6.3 AMG supercharged...absolute monster of a car...not had it long when the power steering pump failed...luckily garage who sold it replaced it under warranty...would have been £900 then his power steering rack failed...and of course being AMG that was £2500 plus fitting and guess what???not under warranty ...oh what a surprise! He has nothing but hassle with it...not sure he got it anymore not seen him for ages . His tyres were £400 each ouch!!
When i told him how much i paid for mine compared what he paid for his he realised that i had the better value car esp when i took him for a spin it it , he was gobsmacked how fast mine was and more practical ...more seats bigger fuel tank better range and cheaper to run too

I think the price reflects the mileage, 184,000 would put me off.

Lovely car though.
5.4 Ltr V8 with 184'000 miles. Personally I would not consider that mileage excessive. Should be good for at least 500'000 mIles, properly serviced IMHO.

@alexanderfoti if no one else offers to take a look and video call you for a look around then I might be able to go next week and take a closer look.

Far as i know it was a factory fitted unit as it had supercharger badges on the front wings as he bought it like it? It looked like it was a factory unit though

They didn’t do the 6.2 with a supercharger from factory, so it would have been an M113k or the later M157 bi-turbo, any M156 with a supercharger was an aftermarket unit

Could be? Or the original owner had a special order done maybe?
