EDIT - if you have sent messages recently I have had problems receiving them and cannot reply to some of the older ones. Please resend them if you remain interested in the car and I'll do my best.

I know this is a cliche, but I'm putting this advert up on behalf of a neighbour's friend.

My neighbour's friend has had health issues that unfortunately mean they are no longer able to drive their lovely blue S320CDi. As it is taking up driveway space and not being used they are looking for a quick no-nonsense sale, which is why this is being advertised with a lower-than-normal price.

You can use the Government's MOT checker to look-up the MOT history, where you will see it failed its MOT back in November last year on a nearside rear shock absorber, which was leaking seriously. This has been rectified and the car comes with a clean MOT until November 28th 2018. The MOT history will also show that it's done barely 20,000 miles in the last five years.

Importantly for a Merc of this era, there's no evidence of bodywork or structural corrosion. The blue paintwork isn't all perfect, as shown in the photos, but it still looks fantastic for its age. The colour is much more interesting than the silver you see on many examples of this car. The sumptuous interior looks virtually spotless.

The car comes with a good service history, and has generally been cared for in its ownership with my neighbour's friend up until he wasn't able to drive it. I believe the diesel engine in this car is chain driven rather than belt driven, so good to at least 200k if not more than that. No belt interval to worry about, at any rate.

I've received some additional information; the car may need to be jump-started due to sitting for a while. The battery is apparently quite recent and so shouldn't need replacing. The car isn't insured/taxed so this will need to be arranged prior to collection by the buyer.

These Mercs are nice big barges, and the silky smooth six-cylinder diesel engine will make this very suitable for doing long motorway journeys.

The car is in Northampton. Please contact me through email only if you are genuinely interested; genuine offers will be considered. I can relatively easily find out more information if you need it.

The asking price is already a bargain; other examples of this age of similar mileage are well in excess of £2000 on Autotrader. While the car does need to be shifted - the asking price reflects this - given the circumstances surrounding it being sold, any silly or insulting offers (i.e. 50% of its asking price) will simply be ignored.

Thanks for reading.
