A General and Honest Description of my Mercedes C Class Elegance On the Road: The car starts on the first turn of the key and the drive is excellent. The automatic gears change smoothly both up and down the box. The engine is smooth, quiet and extremely powerful with no abnormal noises or smoke. The steering is tight and positive and the suspension and ride is excellent. The brake pads and discs are in excellent condition and work perfectly. All the electrics I have found to be in excellent working order. This Mercedes C Class drives like new. There are no faults at all. Every thing on this Mercedes works as it should.
The Boot Compartment: Clean and dry. The Grey Carpets are like new with no stains or wear. The Spare Tyre and Wheel is Original and Still Unused. The jack and brace is present. The original first aid box is also present which is stored in the rear parcel shelve.
The engine compartment on this Mercedes C200: Quite a sight to behold. The engine and surrounding interior panels are completely free from oil and dirt. The Engine compartment is regularly cleaned and polished and finished with a quality silicone.
Interior: The roof lining material is quite perfect with no marks, stains or fading. The sand coloured leather seats are also in superb order and show no signs of wear at all. All leather trim interior has recently benefitted from a clean and quality feed. The dash, doors and centre console materials are all in perfect condition and all the wood finish is unmarked and polished. The floor carpets front and rear are in really excellent condition with no signs of wear at all. The carpet pile is deep and soft. There is a set of original carpet over mats still in the car which have gone a long way to preserve the interior carpets. The original first aid box is also present which is stored in the rear parcel shelve. “I can’t stress enough how perfect the cars interior is”. It is as new!!
Wheels and Tyres: All four alloy wheel rims are near perfect. All four alloy wheels had some slight marking around the rims. I have recently had them all professionally repaired. The car now has a four alloy wheels in perfect condition. All tyres are really excellent. (The alloy wheel centre caps could do with replacing. I will try and have this done over the coming week. The cost for these is circa £20).
Body Work and General Condition: Firstly, there is no rust on my car. As is common with any car almost sixteen years old there will be a certain amount of wear and tear as it has been used. This Mercedes C Class has suffered very little. Before writing this I have given the car a wash and polish and thoroughly inspected the complete car. All the body panels are exact and completely free from the usual every day dents and scratches. There are a couple of very, very fine chips on the bonnet. These have not chipped through to the metal and I haven’t felt the need to touch them up with those unsightly coloured pencils. You will be hard pushed to see them. All that is required was a good coating of wax.. The under side of the car is free from corrosion, clean with no signs of oil leaks. The cars exterior is really quite exceptional.
A Very low mileage Mercedes Benz C200 with an excellent history. All mechanics and electrics are excellent. The boot area is the same. The interior is in quite stunning condition and the engine compartment is gleaming. All the door checks are spotless as are the sill tread plates perfect. The best build quality and reliability Mercedes have to offer. The car is like new!!!
What is required to make this car the perfect classic?
Nothing at all.
It already is a classic. Ready for you to drive and enjoy.
A True British Classic Interior, “Leather and Wood.” Automatic, Air Conditioning and an Excellent Sound System for your Classics.
Probably the Best 1995 C Class Mercedes in the UK.
