FAX285K has served me without missing a beat for over 80,000 miles in just under three years. Travelling to and fro between Yorkshire and London on a weekly basis, this car has never ceased to please.
Whilst mechanically it is second to none with a full service history and no expense spared, cosmetically it has suffered somewhat as shown in the photographs. It is only cosmetic however! The off side front wing is damaged as per the photos, together with the off side rear quarter. Both these happened when I had a brush with a wall. There is no structural damage and I have done 10K miles in the car since. The near side front door is also damaged as per the photos. I have given it a good polish, but the rest of the car is tatty too, scuffed bumpers, stone chips etc etc. It is NOT an award winning car and this is reflected in the price.It starts, stops, goes in a straight line and is comfortable, safe, fast and powerful. It has no leaks either!
It has been maintained during my ownership by Merc Specialists in Skipton who have done loads of work including standard services as per the book, new discs, ABS sensors, front springs etc etc. It is having a fresh MOT on Monday and will therefore have 12 months on it. The tax runs out at the end of July.
There are no faults on the readout except for one that says service brakes. This is NOT the pads or discs, it is the main ABS unit. This is however fully functional and can be verified by any Mercedes mechanic. The Bosch unit sends the message after the brake pedal has been pressed so many thousand times, but it does not affect the braking system in any way.
It has got stacks of miles left in it, but is just a bit scruffy now for business use.
Every electronic item works bar the parking sensors which have been sprayed over at some stage before I owned it. It has all its original hand books, a fully stamped service book and one key. It does 27MPG on the motorway in cruise control at 90 and you can get this up to 31 at 70.
It had 4 new Bridgestone tyres in March when I took the winter tyres off. These are in excellent condition with masses of tread left on them. The spare is a skinny. Jack and tool kit are both present with two locking wheel nuts.
The car will be declared SORN at the end of the month but I will be transferring the insurance on Tuesday next week to my new car, It will be in Clitheroe until Monday evening and thereafter in London W3. COLLECTION AT THE END OF THE AUCTION IS LONDON W3.
CASH ON COLLECTION or PAYPAL prior to collection.
Have fun bidding - it needs a good home!

After a trip to the garage today, it is not going to be awarded an MOT certificate until it has had three brake pipes replaced as they are corroding.
I do not have the time to do this so the car has an MOT UNTIL AUGUST 8TH 2014
