    Hi all

    My A210 Evo up for sale.

    Bit tatty on the edges (arches etc). Otherwise in generally good condition, in line with age etc.

    Needs a service, but otherwise doesn't need much.
    4 tyres etc.

    Lots of time wasters on FB/Ebay/Gumtree.

    £600 to a forum member, will give it a full service for that price.

    https://www.gumtree.com/p/mercedes-benz/mercedes-a210-evolution-amg/1350973177

    Otherwise, its off to auction on ebay with no reserve, as its just sat around not doing much!

    I did ask MrsLK (to replace the bus now most of the big furniture moves are complete) but she said no as we still need the space for the 3 dogs... (None of them are larger than a very large cat).

    Ah that's a shame. You can remove the rear seats and have a dogs paradise :)

    They are pretty massive inside.

    Yeah I'd have been up for it as something cheaper to run than the E240.

    LWB W168 with rear seats removed, would probably give you as much space as your E240, Alastair.
    It's remarkably spacious inside.

    The flat floor and taller roof makes it real Tardis - you'll be surprised what can fit in (and I only had short wheel based ones)

    agree for money cant be beat ,not so on auto, for me,anyway. .i have 2 a class auto only issues timing chain (changed by me to avoid failure, hopefully !). gearshift module/unit. belts and pulleys . vacuum pump for c locking. i also stripped a runner for parts to keep the other going so have a spare motor/trans and ecm,s the only issue i have is the mindless issue of access ..

    lovelly does her craft fairs and boots with ours ,frankly would sugest that not much if any difference in practical load in yr lwb and an empty a class 168. the level of electronics also makes them more reliable than many more modern models, again in my view, maybe not others.. my understanding is diesel auto,s dont suffer so much with tranny problems.

    We can fit a 2 meter bulk bag in the back of the wife’s car with the seats down, it’s normally full of garden cuttings.

    Now gone on the bay of e, for £620.

    The guy got a train down from Liverpool, went to the wrong station, was 2 hours late, then spent 4 hours (!!!) faffing around, locking himself out of online banking (cash? ?) before leaving.

    Whew!

    I would have turned it into a track car if I had the time lol
