Mercedes E280 CDI Avantgarde Auto Saloon (W211) in excellent condition throughout. It’s had a full HPI report this week and is clear and available to any prospective buyer for peace of mind (i.e. no finance, no VIC/police markers, not written off etc.). Current registered keeper has had the vehicle for 5+ years.

Mechanical Condition

The car drives very well, pulls well in each gear and goes, steers and stops fine. The 3.0 V6 Merc diesel is an absolute peach, it’s very smooth and runs without issue. It doesn’t smoke at idle or under load or use any oil/water and you can barely hear/feel it running once in the car. Having the 7G tiptronic gearbox (7 speed automatic transmission with manual override) it’s a very refined drive, changing gear seamlessly and is almost silent even when at 70mph+. Tyres are all in good condition with plenty of tread left (225/45/17).

The Merc’s covered a sensible mileage of just over 95k miles (not like some of the mega milers you see on eBay) with a valid MOT until 11th Nov 2018. Very good service history; nearly full, last serviced at 86k miles. The car has clearly been looked after, just looking at the bodywork and interior you can tell it’s been very well cared for. Being the Avantgarde trim, it has the usual comfort/convenience features plus:

· Front foglights

· Auto Xenon headlights with integral washers, parking lights and ‘follow me home’ front and rear lights

· Tyre pressure monitoring system

· Auto-dimming rear view and wing mirrors

· Puddle lights on each door (not illuminated on photos as they work on the headlight light sensor, so only illuminate when starting to get dark)

· Electrically adjustable and power fold electric wing mirrors

· Full unmarked leather upholstery

· Electrically adjustable front seats

· Dual zone digital climate control with ice cold air conditioning (recent re-gas)

· Switchable LCD trip computer in instrument binnacle

· Cruise control with engine and then wheel braking if a speed is exceeded (i.e. downhill stretches)

· 4 x polarised electric windows

As regards mechanical condition - there are no known issues, I can’t confirm what has or hasn’t been replaced/changed/serviced if it is not in the documentation I have with the car, however you’d be hard pushed to fault anything on it. These engines are chain driven and as such are lifetime components so will not require replacement. The engine itself is quiet and refined, especially once inside the car. The car drives impeccably well, there is no hesitancy upon acceleration and kickdown works well (with manual override mode). Comfort and Sport modes on the gearbox both work fine.

Bodywork and Interior Condition

Bodywork wise it’s in very good condition. There are a few marks around the vehicle, but certainly less than would be commensurate with the age and mileage. The interior is in excellent condition, the upholstery is unmarked and the carpets are as new. It really is a superb example.


As with any secondhand vehicle, the only faults to note with the vehicle are:

· Small crack in windscreen on passenger side, just within the reach of the passenger side wiper. It is not in the driver’s line of sight. (Most insurers will replace for free and just charge a £50-£75 excess. You could even go direct to a repairer, I've had a quote for replacement of £222 inc. VAT and fitting for a brand new screen with light/rain sensors from Car Glass North East Ltd)


Ultimately it’s been priced very sensibly but reasonable offers are very welcome. Sorry, but silly offers will just be ignored. The car has wanted for little and would require very little to keep it going.
