'05 Mercedes C220 CDi £1600

Recommended Posts

So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.

 

Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.

 

I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!

 

So..

 

-130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut

 

-Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!

 

-recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since

 

-rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.

 

-MOT till 19th November 2019!

 

No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.

 

I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.

With regret I think I'll have to move this on. I've got to conserve money and the insurance is killing me (£90pm) and hopefully with significant future plans in place life wise, I could do with all the savings I can get. This car is fab, and I don't want to get rid at all, but I'm going to have to.

 

Bought from Colc on here and it's so much better than he described.

 

Comprehensive and I mean comprehensive history...some £££'s spent including new turbo etc etc. It's been bloody cherished! 3 keys and working sat Nov, heated seats, air con, the works, 128k miles.

 

Has original mats, boot liner too. No rust, and plenty of MOT, over 6 months. I've given it a full service and fresh wipers all round. Dry as a bone engine and it's such a cracking car. I've been to Wales and back and all over.

 

Only minor points is that a small patch of paint on the top of the rear bumper flaked off, and the glowplug light comes on now and again, TADTS and doesn't affect it. I was anninv on changing them, but summer is approaching so no need. Drives spot on.

 

£2100 is what I'd like, think that's a bargain considering the condition/history.

 

Oh also has full set of Michelin Cross Climates all round with plenty of tread

 

I'm now living in Quinton (lol)

Can confirm having purchased from Sims00 that he is a Top Shitter.

 

GLWS!

I've been admiring this since you put it up for sale, it looks lovely and the mpgs would be a nice bonus. I'd have to sell my other car for space reasons though and 8 days before baby due is probably not the best time to be suggesting such things to the wife...

 

Hope it sells soon, but if it is still around in a couple of weeks I may well be coming your way

I also have a huge hankering for this. When 2 grand flutters out of a tree and brushes my cheek, I shall be making the call.

Have you had the engine cover off? No sign of the dreaded ***** *****?

None at all, I've serviced it myself and inspected it too at the time.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?

      I have acquired a vehicle. This is when I was trying to fix it so I could drive home.

       
      The car was offered FOC to the Rover 800 Owners' Club. They weren't really in a position to take it on directly, so it ended up being pointed my way. It's an 820 base model - SU carburettor-fed 2-litre O-Series! BAe was the first owner, for eight weeks, then it was sold to the father of the chap I bought it off, who sadly passed away last year.
       
      It has covered 105k, has a fair bit of rust in a few places, but is pretty tidy and looks bloody fantastic. It has a few weeks of MOT, delicious dealer plates, unexpected lumbar adjustment and electric front windows. One piece of wood on the dash, none on the doors, manual tilt/slide sunroof, spoiler!
       
      It had barely moved since July last year, but sadly, I got a whiff of hot brakes on the M55. I pulled onto the hard shoulder and the nearside rear wheel was smoking. I limped at 30mph down the hard shoulder to the next junction, which was not fun. I then limped gently back to the vendor, where I stripped the brake, used entirely the wrong grease (as it was all he had) to try and improve things, considered this a success and drove 180 miles home.
       
      I seem to have mostly taken photos of the rear.

       
      There is a petrol station shot, but you'll have to wait. I developed a horrible migraine on the way back and had to stop for a while. Most unlike me. 
       
      Eventually made it back.

       
      It's all a bit complicated, but the idea is I have it for a bit and at some point, it'll end up back with the club. I think the plan is to sell it to raise some funds for charity longer term, but sadly, it could also do with a set of calipers and tyres, so finances need to be reconsidered I think. The brakes are SHITE. It could be air from boiling brake fluid, so I'll see if a bleed helps, but I reckon all the calipers are buggered.
