    TheXUDfiles got a reaction from sdkrc in W210 into 2020   
    I've been on this forum under another name, and after a year or so decided to give it another go. 
    A few months ago my 405 estate packed up. It was shared between me and the Mrs, but after it was confirmed dead, I was given a green light to "get whatever I want."
    As we know this time of year is open season for buying old barges, so eBay was my sweet shop.
    A fairly clean looking, pre facelift E280 was found in Central London, at silly, silly low money, with no other bids. 
    Like a sad sod I watched the clock tick down all day, and acted like I'd won the lottery when the fabled/dreaded "you have won this item!" screen flashed up.
    If this was a W124 I doubt I'd get much change from £4000. It has the kind of history file which would inspire mouth foaming on Car and Classic, and the "right kind of people" owning it. Prior to me it was owned by a company director who had it from 2000. He was having to chuck it thanks to the ULEZ.
    This has been untouched by weed/pets/children/fast food/christmas tree air fresheners like so many of these have, so it still feels like a prestige car behind the wheel.
    It's survived well outside because it was resprayed a few years ago, retaining the original Mercedes Green Black colour. 
    Personally I rate these over the W124 master race - they drive better and are better packaged, in my view. This being the M104 six which was carried over from the W124 means it feels more like a trad Merc, so you get the best of both worlds. 
    This one hasn't been eaten by rust, amazingly.
    Enjoy the pez station shot, and photos of in its natural habitat: which it drove through with ease. This old tanks are great for city driving, sealing the grit and noise outside like a proper Merc should.
    After getting it home I polished up lights, and cut and waxed the paintwork so it looks a little more loved now. I'll upload those another time.
    It's given me a few teething problems, which I'll post about next time I'm on here for any length of time. 
    Thanks for reading!
