I’ll start by saying that I definitely do not need another car. Two old Mercs in the garage and a leased Kia on the drive should be plenty to keep me busy. However, the lease on my wife’s Tucson comes to an end in seven months and she would be happy with my Xceed, which means that I would need a new daily. We’re unlikely to go abroad this year and it would be fun to have another pile of shit to play with in the summer. Enough excuses.

About a month ago I joined a Facebook W210 group to see if anyone local is selling a car. A tidy looking E240 came up for sale and I have arranged to see it this morning. It’s priced competitively, has 10 months MoT, 130k miles with FSH but 8 previous owners, which isn’t great. The chap selling it, a pub landlord I believe, has had it for 2.5 years.

It’s my ideal spec W210, post facelift saloon, V6, silver, black leather. The seller’s photos are a mishmash of new and old and there are some great* up close shots of the rear seat. 

My expectations are reasonable and providing it’s not a complete shed I’m hoping to do a deal.
