The Prince of Arabia would not be seen dead driving a black on black car across the Singing Sands Desert. Imagine the air-conditioner struggling to cope with 50C air temperature and an even higher sand temperature.

Even red would be a challenge.

On the matter of Lloyds auctions; I am not entirely convinced by their statement:

"As with all vehicles sold in the Classic Car Division, they have been well looked after by their previous owners. This is an Auction Sale. This asset is sold under standard auction conditions, as is, where is. High volumes of incoming product prevent our team from being able to inspect all items individually. All photos, descriptions and any condition reports should be used as a guide only and have been compiled after speaking with the owners. To find out more about this lot or to book a live video inspection please contact the Auctioneer Contact which can be found on the Auction Details page. There is no statutory warranty & no cooling off period."

There is an inherent contradiction in that claim and a liberal dose of snake-oil in the sump.

Regards,
Brian

This is just he normal "spiel" when cars are being auctioned off. It tells you a lot about nothing really and is all one could reasonably expect from an Auction House. It is a matter of buyer beware and hope to God that you haven't bought a brumby. Regards Styria

Just noticed these two W202 for sale both cars advertised with low kilometres.

I wonder if the value of the W202 C-Class 4cyl and V6 has potentially gone up perhaps due to COVID-19?

There are a few W126 sedans and coupes also advertised on Carsales varying in price which was interesting to see.

Mind you what someone advertised there car and what the car actually ends up selling for are two different things.

I know first hand and perhaps not alone in that experience?

You are spot on Tim.

During Covid, used cars have gone up over 35%.
Supply of good low k used cars is tough at present.

Yes,
What is asked, and what is paid sometimes has a very large void in between :eek:

Hello Patrick wow 35% increase for used cars!

Wait and see if the value of used cars continues into 2021?

I was going past my local european mechanic and this car is for sale. Deceased estate. I have no connection with the car other than spotting it and asking about it. Apparently it has recently had a lot of moneys spent on it. Its a 2003 or 2004 E500 W211. From what I gather I think a good deal could be done, but I don't know the asking price. If anyone is interested I can go back and get contact details of the owner.

I like the colour, the V8 and the fact this series is one of the most reliable E-class models

One for Anthony. As president of the M100 group, it is the only suitable conveyance. It's amazing how many SWB cars are advertised as pullmans.
